Sheriff David Clarke no longer under consideration for DHS job

Clarke's assistant told Washington Post on Saturday that the bombastic Milwaukee sheriff has told DHS Secretary John Kelly that he's withdrawing himself from consideration to become an assistant secretary in the Office of Partnership and Engagement.

Sheriff David Clarke is no longer taking a job at the Department of Homeland Security, his adviser says.

President Donald Trump met with Clarke on his visit to Milwaukee on Tuesday, and they "talked about alternative roles for Clarke", Peterson told the Journal-Sentinel.

Neither the White House nor the Department of Homeland Security ever acknowledged that Sheriff Clarke was actually offered a job at the agency.

Clarke is a highly-vocal President Trump supporter and a regular guest on Fox News.

Clarke was expected to start in a role at DHS at the end of June, but according to one person close to the administration who is familiar with the situation, his appointment had been subject to significant delays that contributed to his withdrawal.

Clarke adviser Craig Peterson said the sheriff believes he is of better use to President Trump "in a more aggressive role".

Clarke has also been criticized for his track record as Milwaukee County Sheriff.

Clarke is "reviewing options inside and outside of government", the statement said. According to The Washington Post, he has been accused of plagiarism for his master's thesis at the Naval Postgraduate School, and he has drawn scrutiny for conditions in his jails that left one mentally ill inmate dead who prosecutors say was deprived of water as punishment.
