David Clarke Goes Berserk With Violent Tweets After Report Of FBI Search Warrant

David Clarke Goes Berserk With Violent Tweets After Report Of FBI Search Warrant

Former Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke has reacted to a report about an FBI search warrant with tweets about the media, saying, “Punch them in the nose & MAKE THEM TASTE THEIR OWN BLOOD” and promising to “bitch slap these scum bags.”

As I posted this morning, news went viral yesterday when it was discovered that in March, the FBI had sought a search warrant for Clarke’s emails. The warrant was related to a complaint by a man named Dan Black who had confronted the then-Sheriff Clarke on a plane. When Black got off the plane, he was accosted and detained by Clarke’s deputies. Black has since filed a civil rights lawsuit.

It’s not clear whether the filing of the warrant yesterday was a matter of housekeeping or related to new actions by the FBI. But we do know that Department of Justice dropped its investigation into Clarke for lack of evidence, not because of any “exoneration” as Jason Chaffetz falsely claimed last night when he gave Clarke a friendly platform to spin the news. We also know that the affidavit in support of the warrant noted that Milwaukee officials had found that Clarke had behaved improperly toward Black. Clarke is also the subject of numerous other lawsuits alleging abuse and mistreatment.

But Clarke, who has a long history of inflammatory tweets, including one saying, “Pitchforks and torches time” seems to have outdone himself today:

There’s simply no excuse for Fox News to continue to host this man as a legitimate pundit. He needs professional help, not a national platform on cable news.

Watch Clarke pretend he was exonerated by the DOJ investigation below, from the December 29, 2017 The Ingraham Angle.

UPDATE: Shortly after this post was written, Twitter suspended Clarke's account until he deleted the tweet threatening violence against media, prompting another round of rage tweets.
