  • David Clarke says he's joining Trump administration

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, speaking during the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on February 23 in National Harbor, Md., has taken a job as an assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security. Clarke said Wednesday that he's departing the sheriff's office take over an office that coordinates the Department of Homeland Security's efforts with state, local and tribal, law enforcement agencies. Applicants must live in Milwaukee County to be appointed to the post.

"An individual representing such extremist ideologies should not be given this type of leadership role and we urge the Trump administration not to go forward with this appointment", Mr. Greenblatt added.

Clarke said he was anxious about the religious freedom of churches and business owners with the marriage decision, even though no church is required to perform a marriage that goes against its doctrine.

Sheriff David Clarke, who heads the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Department, has reportedly accepted a position with the United States Department of Homeland Security.

Clarke is perhaps best known for his very critical - and controversial - comments on Black Lives Matter and has been a vocal supporter of Trump during the presidential election. He's also repeatedly called Black Lives Matter a terrorist organization and frequently refers to the activist group as "Black Lies Matter". Most recently, corrections officers were blamed for the dehydration death of Terrill Thomas.

Where there is smoke there is not necessarily fire. "We told him we were concerned the American people had been misled". Clapper reiterated that he still hasn't seen evidence to suggest that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians.

Clarke's rhetoric made him a polarizing figure.

His announcement comes just a month after a grand jury recommended charges against several staff members at one of Clarke's Milwaukee jails, where an inmate with bipolar disorder died after he was deprived of water for a week. Walker's office said the application process for interested applicants will last for about two weeks, followed by interviews.

Republican Gov. Scott Walker would be responsible for appointing someone to serve the remainder of Clarke's term, which runs through 2018.

Tom Evenson, spokesman for Walker, said his office had not yet received a formal resignation letter from Clarke.

The announcement was met with a flurry of criticism: Clarke, who is staunchly conservative, said earlier this year that the only time he would reach across the aisle would be to grab a Democrat "by the throat".
