Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, a strong supporter of President Trump, is expected to join President Trump’s administration after resigning from his position on Thursday.
Politico, citing two sources familiar with the situation, reports that Clarke is expected to join the Trump administration in a position that is not Senate-confirmed.
Clarke told Politico that he would “talk about my future plans next week.”
In his resignation letter, the former Sheriff 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.
The controversial sheriff was reportedly offered a role in Trump’s Department of Homeland Security in June but withdrew from consideration for the role a few weeks later.
