Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke, a Trump supporter and frequent commentator on Fox News, stated in a radio interview that he was being appointed as an Assistant Secretary in the Department of Homeland Security. The post Clarke stated to have been offered would start in June and he would be a liaison to state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies. His name had previously been mentioned as a possible FBI Director after President Trump fired Director Comey. The DHS has yet to confirm Clarke’s appointment.
