Ex-Sheriff David Clarke denies facing Federal Bureau of Investigation probe, calls reports 'fake news'

Ex-Sheriff David Clarke denies facing Federal Bureau of Investigation probe, calls reports 'fake news'

"When LYING LIB MEDIA makes up FAKE NEWS to smear me, the ANTIDOTE is go right at them", Clarke went on to tweet. "I will continue to poke them in the eye with a sharp stick and b*tch slap these scum bags til they get it". After reports broke in recent days about the Federal Bureau of Investigation obtaining a warrant to search his email account in regards to a previous lawsuit, Clarke put the blame on the media.

Black had filed a lawsuit in February 2017 claiming Clarke abused his power after an encounter on an airplane. Emails and text messages requested and obtained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation reveal Clarke had six officers and two K-9's harass Black upon arriving to the Milwaukee airport from Dallas on January 15. Clarke often gets death threats because he's a public figure, a black conservative, and a staunch Trump supporter. However, Dan Black's civil lawsuit against Clarke is still pending.

Clarke resigned as sheriff in August, having turned down the role of assistant secretary of the Department of Homeland Security under the Trump administration.

Despite the damaging information in the affidavit, the Department of Justice sent a letter to Clarke's attorney in May saying that a decision had been made "not to criminally prosecute any civil rights offenses" against Clarke because of concerns that such a case would be hard to prove "beyond a reasonable doubt".

I am NOT now under investigation by the FBI in the Black case.

After his Twitter barrage on Saturday, numerous liberals apparently reported Clarke for violating Twitter rules with his tough talk. The tweet included a photo of a wrestling match that had been photoshopped to show Clarke kicking a man with the CNN logo on his face who was being held by President Trump.

Clarke's tweets double down on what he said on Friday night during an interview with Fox News.

Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke lashed out Saturday at what he called the "lying lib media", after multiple reports claimed he was under investigation by the FBI.

During the Twitter series, he explained that the attempts to "silence" him with "lies" won't be successful because "I don't back down, I punch back". "Bring it scum bags".

One thing everyone knows is that David Clarke never backs down from a fight. "And I'm going to smack you around until you crawl back to your mom's basement".
