DHS hopeful Clarke denies plagiarism in master's thesis

David Clarke

"I'm on to him folks", Clarke said. Clarke got his master's degree from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterrey, California.

Clarke, who said he would be joining President Trump's administration as an assistant secretary in the DHS, failed to properly attribute sources at least 47 times, the CNN story said.

He also reportedly plagiarized words from several other reports including the 9/11 Commission Report, various think tanks like the Pew Research Center, a 2012 report by the Constitution Project, a 2003 report by the US General Accounting Office, and media outlets like a 2013 Washington Post article and former President George W. Bush's book, "Decision Points".

Clarke - who announced this week he would join the Trump administration as an assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security - completed the thesis on US security for the Naval PostGraduate School in Monterey, Calif., the station reported.

Clarke responded to the allegations in an email to his hometown paper, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, by claiming that the story was partisan in nature. Days later, Politico reported that Crowley also plagiarized multiple sections of her doctoral dissertation in global relations. (@SheriffClarke) May 20, 2017This @CNN hack @KFILE oppo research MO is to accuse plagiarism. Rand Paul of Kentucky pushed back against against a Kaczynski-authored story for Buzzfeed News, in which he was accused of using disputed quotes.

Clarke campaigned for Trump during the 2016 election and has been one of his most prominent supporters since the election.

A few days later, CNN reported that the controversial sheriff who is fond of appearing on Fox News plagiarized significant portions of his master's thesis about homeland security-"Making U.S. security and privacy rights compatible". And in March, the Associated Press reported that four people - including a newborn baby - died at the jail within a six-month period past year.

Clarke is known for his alignment with Pr*sident Donald Trump, tough talk, disgust with dissent, and over-the-top characterizations of people he disagrees with, including Black Lives Matter and anyone to the left of Genghis Khan. "A statement on Wednesday said: "[Senior] positions are announced when made official by the Sec [retary]. Clarke has also faced criticism for his management of a Milwaukee County Jail, where local prosecutors say an inmate died of dehydration after going a week without water.
