David Clarke says he will ‘b**ch slap’ the ‘scumbag’ media over FBI report [updated]

The media discovered a new detail in an investigation into formerly Sheriff Clarke, which occasioned more stories about an altercation he was cleared of months ago. Clarke doesn’t appreciate it much:

Clarke calls it a “nothingburger” on Fox News:

More from the Washington Post:

The FBI obtained a search warrant to access former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke’s personal email in March, according to a federal court filing made public this week.

An affidavit dated March 7 explained the FBI wanted access to Clarke’s personal Gmail account for an investigation into an incident between Clarke and fellow airline passenger, Dan Black, in January.

Black sued, claiming he was unlawfully detained by six uniformed deputies and two K-9 dogs after a squabble with Clarke aboard an American Airlines flight in January.

Special Agent Jennifer Walkowski requested the search warrant for the FBI after being pointed towards the emails by Milwaukee County auditors.

Walkowski presented the court with a photocopy of an email from Clarke – at the address [email protected] – referencing Black’s formal complaint which read: “Sheriff has taken this asshole’s compliant under advisement and summarily determined that he can go to hell. The next time he or anyone else pulls this stunt they may get knocked out. Sheriff does not have to wait for some goof to assault him.”

The investigation was dropped for lack of evidence, but there’s a civil suit against Clarke by the guy who mocked him on the plane. Really, this could go either way, and it seems like a he said-he said kind of a deal. Unless a witness or some kind of recording proves either side, how do you prove what actually happened?


OK he’s kinda losing it now:

I guess Hillary forced him to sic the cops on a guy who annoyed him at the airport?

Wow. That’ll show’em that you’re a rational critic and that the mainstream media is deranged, right? Riiiight.
