At The Hill by
President-elect Donald Trump has selected Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) to serve as his attorney general.
the first senator to back Trump's White House bid, will be announced
Friday morning as Trump's pick to take over the Justice Department, a
Trump transition official confirmed to The Hill.
Republican emerged early as Trump's strongest supporters in Congress,
and two of his top staffers have become key players in Trump's orbit on
the campaign and the transition team.
That loyalty has gone a long way with Trump, as a source told The Hill ahead of the announcement that Sessions had his pick of Cabinet spots.
