Trump taps Sessions for Attorney General, further limiting Christie’s options

Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions – the first and only U.S. Senator to endorse Donald Trump in 2016 – is reportedly going to be America’s next Attorney General according to several Friday media reports.

Rep. Mike Pompeo of Kansas will reportedly serve as CIA Director.

Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn is slated to assume the post of national security adviser.

Sessions served as Attorney General of Alabama before joining the U.S. Senate in 1997 where he is considered one of the chamber’s most conservative voices and sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

These key Trump nominations further limit the potential administration ‘landing spots’ for New Jersey’s Chris Christie who, as of late, appears to be an increasingly marginalized member of the larger Trump universe of supporters.

“I have every intention of serving out my full term as governor. I have said that from the beginning,” Christie told a League of Municipalities luncheon on Thursday after bumping his rebellious #2, Kim Guadagno from a speaking role. “I hope that you notice the words that he used on election night. They were his and he chose them carefully. He wants to unite this country and bring people together,” he added of Trump.
