Scott Walker secretly said that Donald Trump would destroy the Republican party

J <> accuse: Scott Walker faces the hypocritical claims of a former aide who says the governor of Wisconsin privately feared that Trump would destroy the Republicans and then endorsed him anyway

A former director of prisons in Wisconsin accuses Gov. Scott Walker and Attorney General Brad Schimel of driving him to the brink of suicide in a new book published on Friday, extending a lengthy dispute between him, Walker's office and the state Department of Justice. .

Former Secretary of the Department of Corrections, Ed Wall, also criticizes Walker in his book, "Unethical: Life in the Cabinet of Scott Walker and the Dirty Side of Politics," for aligning with President Donald Trump. Wall claims that Walker told him that Trump would destroy the Republican Party.

Walker's spokeswoman, Amy Hasenberg, called Wall's accusations unfounded. Schimel said Wall's accusations are inaccurate and he expects Wall to get help.

The launch of the book occurs when Walker faces re-election in November. Wall has backed the Democratic candidate Tony Evers.

Walker appointed Wall to head the state Department of Corrections in 2012. He resigned in 2016 amid accusations of widespread abuse in the state's juvenile prison. The state Department of Justice initiated an investigation, but the FBI already took over the investigation.

State law allowed Wall to return to his previous job as administrator of the Criminal Investigation Division of the Department of Justice. The agency's officers gave him back his job, but they quickly demoted him and put him on administrative leave.

Schimel fired him in April 2016, after sending a letter to Walker's chief of staff at the time, Rich Zipperer, asking for help in regaining his administrator job.

Wall noted in the letter that the administration was concerned about the creation of public records and told Zipperer to feel free to destroy the document. Schimel said he could not trust an employee who encouraged others to break the law.

Since then, Wall has landed a job at a New Hampshire cybersecurity company, but he still resents the way he believes he was treated. He said in November that he would write a revealing book.

In the book, Wall writes that he told the Justice Department about the problems in the juvenile prison, but the agency stood up. Zipperer told him he would take a lawsuit so that the Walker administration would worry about problems in the juvenile prison, he wrote.

He goes on about how Walker looked "small and insignificant" during his presidential bid. Two days after Walker left the race, Wall said the former governor confided that he feared Trump would destroy the Republican Party.

"I respect his apparent principled position, but that disappeared when, as the months passed, I saw him prostituting himself to the same bully who wasted no time in stripping his dignity from the nation," Wall wrote. .

Wall said he wrote the letter out of "sheer desperation" created by Walker, Zipperer, Justice Department chief counsel Paul Connell and Schimel. He accused Schimel of "intentionally misrepresenting my desperate requests for help" in allegations of violation of the law.

Wall said he later drove to his cabin alone and put his gun in his mouth.

"Sobbing uncontrollably, I looked at that gun and just felt anger," Wall wrote. "I wanted Walker, Zipperer, Schimel and Connell to know how badly they had hurt me and my family.

"He wanted his dishonesty, his deception, his injustice, his immoral actions, to burn in their souls for the rest of their lives."

Wall said the only thing that stopped him was the idea of ​​his wife and children and the memory of Craig Klyve, a Justice Department administrator who committed suicide on the parking ramp of the agency's Madison headquarters in 2009.

Hasenberg, Walker's spokeswoman, characterized Wall's accusations as coming from a disgruntled former employee.

"These are bogus attacks by someone who was fired from the Justice Department for asking a state employee to break the law," he said.

Schimel said Friday that he had to fire Wall because "his efforts to circumvent public records laws were atrocious (sic)." He said Wall was in the best position to protect the inmates in the juvenile prison.

"I hope that Mr. Wall will continue to receive the help and care he may need," Schimel said.
