Recommended Posts

President-elect Donald Trump will tap Sen. Jeff Sessions to be his Attorney General, according to Bloomberg Newsand the New York Times.

Sessions, the first U.S. Senator to endorse Trump, was rumored for a number of positions in Trump’s cabinet, including Department of Homeland Security and Department of Defense but it appears that the former Attorney General of Alabama has been selected for the highest law and order position in the administration.

Sen. Ted Cruz was also rumored for the position after he was spotted at Trump Tower, meeting with the president elect.

The official announcement from Trump’s transition team is expected later today.

In addition, Rep. Mike Pompeo has been selected by Trump as CIA director and retired General Mike Flynn has been selected as his national security adviser.

Pompeo, who serves on the House Intelligence Committee, is popular with the national security hawks in Washington as he supports restoring the intelligence community’s ability to collect bulk metadata. He is also a firm opponent of the Iran Deal and served on the House special committee to investigate the Benghazi attacks.

That's not a promising start. :sad:

I know. His picks are not exactly what I had in mind regarding restoration of freedom.

If we listen to the media then there will never be anyone acceptable except the old guard.

Nobody is perfect but when it comes to getting things done Trump has my support.

Chatter in the background says they are good picks.
