David Clarke Comes Forward With Damning Attack on Media After FBI Probe Against Him


The left hasn’t liked former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke for quite some time because of his no-nonsense stance on law and order, as well as his outspoken support for Donald Trump — as a presidential candidate and as president.

The liberal media recently launched a seemingly coordinated assault against Clarke related to an FBI investigation of a confrontation Clarke was in back in January with an angry liberal aboard a commercial aircraft.

According to the Washington Examiner, the FBI obtained a search warrant in March to look into Clarke’s email accounts as part of an investigation into the incident, in which airline passenger Dan Black was detained and questioned by sheriff’s deputies with K-9s, allegedly at Clarke’s direction.

The FBI’s probe of the case as a potential civil rights violation was closed in May due to a lack of evidence, but a civil lawsuit Black has against Clarke remains pending, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The Journal Sentinel reported last week about a search warrant of Clark’s emails that had been executed back in March in connection with the now-closed FBI probe. Clarke apparently felt the report about a search warrant from 10 months ago was intended to make it appear as though the FBI probe of Clarke was still active.

Perhaps borrowing a page out of Trump’s playbook, Clarke took to social media to hit back at the media reports, and did he ever, as he posted to Twitter on Friday the letter from the U.S. Attorney’s Office dated May 3, 2017, informing him of the closure of the case.

But that was only the start of his counter-attack.

According to Fox News, Clarke continued to lash out against the “lying lib media” with a series of fiery Twitter posts on Saturday, at least one of which has since been removed from his account.

According to Fox, the removed post featured a photoshopped image of Clarke and Trump “wrestling” with CNN. The president was restraining the news network while Clarke appeared to be kicking it in the face.

The caption read: “BREAKING NEWS! When LYING LIB MEDIA makes up FAKE NEWS to smear me, the ANTIDOTE is go right at them. Punch them in the nose & MAKE THEM TASTE THEIR OWN BLOOD. Nothing gets a bully like LYING LIB MEDIA’S attention better than to give them a taste of their own blood #neverbackdown”

But Clarke was nowhere near finished as he continued to tweet several times throughout Saturday and into Sunday with posts directly attacking the media and Democrats, prompting complaints to Twitter from “snowflake” liberals offended by his posts.

One of Clarke’s post stated:  “Nothing like getting under the skin of lefties like I did today. I fight to win. You come at me libs you better bring a hard hat, some aspirin and your veggie wrap because it’s going to be a long day and I’m going to smack you around until you crawl back to your mom’s basement.”

Another post on Sunday declared, “I keep warning the LYING LIB MEDIA and their liberal goons NOT TO POKE THE DOG because I BITE BACK. They continue to think I will take their DRIVE-BY HIT SMEARS lying down. I WASN’T BUILT TO BACK DOWN. They are not used to THIS conservative’s style of SMASH-MOUTH POLITICS #MAGA”

Still another stated, “I should take time out of opening a can of tweet rear-end whoopin’ on the LYING LIB MEDIA and their liberal goons and thank them for that FAKE NEWS story they perpetrated on me. It RE-ENERGIZED me! As if I needed that. My hat drives them bat-crap crazy!”

There were many other posts as well, but the point was certainly made that Clarke has not been intimidated by the media’s “fake news” assault against him, which rehashed old news as if it had just occurred or was still ongoing.

He wasn’t afraid to hit them back even harder than they hit him.
