WASHINGTON — President-elect Donald J. Trump has selected Senator Jeff Sessions, a conservative from Alabama who became a close adviser after endorsing him early in his campaign, to be the attorney general of the United States, according to officials close to the transition.
Mr. Sessions, a former prosecutor elected to the Senate in 1996, serves on the Judiciary Committee and has opposed immigration reform as well as bipartisan proposals to cut mandatory minimum prison sentences.
President-elect Donald Trump has selected Sen. Jeff Sessions to be his nominee for the next attorney general, an official close to the transition process told CNN Friday.
The official said the offer had been made officially but it was unclear as of Friday morning whether Sessions had accepted.
When asked whether Sessions had been offered the attorney general position, Republican National Committee spokesman Sean Spicer told CNN Friday, "until Donald Trump says it, it's not official."

Maybe he is saving Gowdy for that special prosecutor. That will be fun for the next four years, watching trials.

Let's hope he picks someone who isn't pro drug war and higher incarceration rates for victimless crimes on the Wells Fargo payroll.
Someone with lot's of RICO experience with the intent of cleaning out congress.
