Former Milwaukee County, Wis., Sheriff David Clarke is expected to join President Trump’s administration, according to a new report. Two sources familiar with the situation told Politico, which first reported the story, that Clarke is expected to join
the Trump administration in a position that is not Senate-confirmed. The former sheriff told Politico that he would “talk about my future plans next week.”
Clarke resigned from his position as sheriff on Thursday. In his resignation letter, Clarke did not provide a reason for his resignation.
“Pursuant to Wis. Stat. 17.01, this communication is submitted as the notice of my resignation as Sheriff of Milwaukee County commencing August 31, 2017,” Clare wrote in the letter.
Clarke, a strong supporter of President Trump, was reportedly offered a role in Trump’s Department of Homeland Security in June.
