Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke admitted Wednesday that she was arrested and chose not to disclose the legal matter during her Senate confirmation process because it had been expunged from her record.

During her 2021 confirmation process, Clarke, who heads the Justice Department’s civil rights division, was asked by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) in a questionnaire if she’d “ever been arrested for or accused of committing a violent crime against any person.”

Clarke responded, “No.”

The Daily Signal reported Tuesday that Clarke was arrested in Maryland in relation to a domestic violence complaint back in 2006.

The outlet cited court documents, her ex-husband Reginald Avery and text messages between Avery and the head of the American Accountability Foundation, a conservative nonprofit group.
