Attorney general

People close to Trump say former New York City Mayor Giuliani, one of Trump’s leading public defenders, is the leading candidate for attorney general. New Jersey Gov. Christie, another vocal Trump supporter and the head of the president-elect’s transition team, is also a contender for the job — though any role in the cabinet for Christie could be threatened by the Bridgegate scandal.

Another possibility: Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, though the controversy over Trump’s donation to Bondi could undercut her nomination.


(Christie may be under indictment soon)
(Giuliani has said repeatedly he doesn't want it and won't be AG)

I realized that after reading all this Bannon stuff the thought never crossed my mind that Trump might end up not hiring him on as a result of the bad press.

Well, it could be more than just "bad press" if people keep calling their representatives expressing their outrage

This story is very scary to me: http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_582a2bede4b02d21bbca3e80?ncid=engmodushpmg00000004
Trump Reportedly Considering Anti-Muslim Conspiracy Theorist For Deputy National Security Adviser

...

Lopez regularly promotes the conspiracy that the Muslim Brotherhood has taken root within the United States government. “The infiltration is obviously very deep and very broad within the bureaucracy, not just the top level, but throughout the federal system, including the intelligence community,” Lopez said in a 2012 speech.

...

Lopez gained notoriety among right-of-center conspiracy blogs after authoring a report suggesting Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s longtime aide, is part of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Lopez called Abedin a “Muslim Brotherhood operative” and has intimated that Abedin, along with Obama, has assisted the Islamic organization.

“I think in the White House, in the president’s office, Barack Obama was motivated by a desire to elevate the Muslim Brotherhood to government across North Africa,” Lopez said in an interview with The United West organization, a hard-line conservative group. “I think that was ideological; it goes to the deep penetration by the Muslim Brotherhood of the Obama administration in many different positions of appointees and advisers, including Huma Abedin.”

...

Trump has also cited research from the Center for Security Policy dozens of times in press releases and speeches during his presidential campaign. When Trump called for a ban on Muslims entering the United States, he justified it by citing a discredited CSP study that claimed to show that 25 percent of Muslims in the U.S. believe violence against America is justified “as part of the global jihad.”

Earlier this year, Lopez suggested that the United States must return to the era of communist-hunting Joe McCarthy to prevent an Islamist infiltration. McCarthy was “spot on” about communists infiltrating America in the 1950s, she said, and America should engage in a similar plan to get rid of Muslim extremists in “the top levels of national security in our government.”

6. U6 unemployment rate. (Current number: 9.7 percent)
7. Change in net imports from Mexico due to renegotiating NAFTA. (Current number: $60 billion in 2015)
