#1 Trump picks Sessions, Flynn, Pompeo for top posts by Cincinnatus 18.11.2016 16:25


WASHINGTON - Donald Trump has selected retired Army lieutenant general Michael Flynn as national security adviser and Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, the Trump transition team announced, granting the first appointments of his upcoming presidency to two men who were unfailingly loyal to him during the divisive election cycle.

The president-elect also announced Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., as his pick to lead the Central Intelligence Agency.

In his statement, Trump said Sessions "is greatly admired by legal scholars and virtually everyone who knows him," and that "Flynn is one of the country’s foremost experts on military and intelligence matters."


Despite claims during Obama's Presidency that the President gets to pick his own team, the Democrats are already threatening to oppose Session's nomination.
