Update:

More from the Washington Examiner:

“The position mentioned is a secretarial appointment. Such senior positions are announced by the Department when made official by the Secretary. No such announcement with regard to the Office of Public Engagement has been made,” DHS said in a statement.

But a former DHS official told the Washington Examiner that Clarke was offered the position last month and will oversee the state and local law enforcement office.

So … stay tuned?
