Trump chose attorney general and CIA director, anonymous source
President-elect Donald Trump has offered the position of attorney general to Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) and the position of CIA director to Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.), according to sources close to the transition, the Washington Post.
Sessions’s offer was finalized Thursday and the senator has been working with staff to lay the groundwork for an official announcement, said one person close to the transition on the condition of anonymity.
Two sources who have spoken directly with Trump officials said Pompeo had been offered and has accepted the job of CIA director. They also asked for anonymity because they are not authorized to speak publicly about the process.
