President-elect Donald Trump is reportedly offering the post of U.S. Attorney General to Alabama U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions, one of Trump's closest and most consistent allies.
That's according to a senior Trump official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the conversation. The official wouldn't say whether Sessions had accepted the job, which left open the possibility that the arrangement was not finalized.
Sessions was the first senator to openly endorse Trump and was a close adviser throughout the campaign.
