President Trump Should Consider These Five People for Attorney General

The long, public breakup of President Donald J. Trump and embattled Attorney General Jeff Sessions finally came to an end November 7, 2018. On this day after the mid-term elections, the former Senator from Alabama resigned his post at the request of the President according to the Washington Examiner.

One of Trump’s earliest and most ardent supporters, Sessions angered the President when he recused himself from the investigation into Russian meddling of the 2016 elections. During his tumultuous tenure in the Trump administration, Sessions aggressively advanced the President’s tough stances on immigration and crime.

However, his efforts to push Trump’s policies weren’t enough to make up for Mueller’s out of control witch hunt.  After the former Senator from Alabama’s ousting, the President quickly named Matthew Whitaker, Sessions’ chief of staff, to be the acting Attorney General. While a permanent replacement hasn’t been named, many are encouraging Trump to act swiftly.

Here are five people the President should consider for Attorney General.

Trey Gowdy

Trump would be hard-pressed to find a better candidate for his next Attorney General than retiring United States Representative Trey Gowdy, Republican – South Carolina. According to The Republican Standard, the President named Gowdy as a possible Attorney General in 2015. However, the Congressman, who endorsed Marco Rubio in the 2016 Republican Primary, maintained he wanted to retain his congressional seat. The Congressman, who’s known for his ever changing hairstyles, is a former fiery prosecutor.

In his role as Chairman of the House Select Committee on Events Surrounding the 2012 Terrorist Attack in Benghazi, Libya, Gowdy valiantly investigated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In fact, this committee was partly responsible for uncovering the existence of the former first lady’s private e-mail server, which contained thousands of official and classified correspondence. While Clinton was campaigning for President in 2016, Gowdy was calling for her to be prosecuted.

Lindsey Graham

Once a foe of the President, United States Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican – South Carolina, has slowly become one of his biggest supporters. Memorably, Graham bullishly defended Judge Brett Kavanagh with an impassioned speech at the Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing on September 27, 2018.

According to the Washington Examiner, “Lindsey Graham 2.0” can “be a more effective version of Sessions, minus the hardline political baggage and the wrath of Trump.” If Graham became the next Attorney General, many feel outgoing Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley would be the perfect person to fill his Senate seat.

Janice Rogers Brown

Janice Rogers Brown is a former United States circuit judge. Known for her allegiance to proponents of limited government, Rogers would be a great selection to advance the rights of private property owners and taxpayers. The former circuit judge is also qualified to continue Sessions’ work on crime.

Mike Lee

A consummate conservative, United States Senator Mike Lee of Utah, was on Trump’s list of potential people to fill the Supreme Court seat now held by Judge Kavanagh. Currently serving his second senate term, Lee served as a clerk for Samuel Alito, when he was a circuit-court magistrate and after he was named to the Supreme Court, and for federal judge Dee Benson.

The Senator also privately practiced appellate and Supreme Court litigation with the law firm of Sidley & Austin. Lee is an even-tempered, die-hard constitutionalist who would ensure the law of the land is carried out.

Thomas Homan

Former President Barack H. Obama first appointed Thomas Homan as the head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s, ICE’s, deportation operations. Homan swiftly demonstrated his tough stance on immigration and found acceptance within the Trump administration. John Kelly, White House Chief of Staff, kept Homan from retiring when he offered him the top job at ICE. Unfortunately, Homan’s nomination stalled in the Senate.

While Homan has since retired, one can only wonder if he’d jump at the chance to become the next Attorney General due to his good working relationship with the President. If he is nominated, Homan would likely have a much easier time getting confirmed in the Senate this time around due to the seats Republicans picked up in the mid-term election.

Obviously, the selection of the next Attorney General is a hugely important decision. Either of the aforementioned options could serve the President well. As for Sessions, he may want to run for his old Senate seat against Doug Jones, Democrat – Alabama, in 2020. In retrospect, he probably shouldn’t have ever left it.

  1. Like!! Really appreciate you sharing this blog post.Really thank you! Keep writing.

  2. what about louie gohmert? he would finally put hillary and obama,huma, comey, strzok, mccabe etc where they belong…..

  3. Trey Gowdy is definitely the best first choice and Lindsey Graham is a great second choice but lets hope for Mr. Gowdy.

  4. ‘Always been aTrey Gowdy fan, but l also think Louie Gohmert would be a great choice. Mike Lee should be on the Supreme Court. Wouldn’t it be great to have these great Constitional Americans as enforcing and interpreting our Constition?!!

  5. Love Gowdy but the timing is bad. He needs to be in Congress until his retirement. He’s badly needed there to keep Pelostomy in line.

  6. Trey Gowdy is the best choice for Attorney General and He is from my state which is a Republican State. Go Gowdy Go!!! @DonaldTrump

  7. I support Trey Gowdy for the position of Attorney General. But is he interested and will he take the position.
    He will be unafraid to prosecute the swamp and will force the FBI to do their job properly and keep them inline politiacally.

  8. Gohmert would be the most loyal and remain a great Conservative representative for helping the President to truly “Drain the Swamp”.

  9. The list for AG is impressive, not a loser anywhere but my choice would be TREY GOWDY…. With him in charge we’ll see the left over DEEP STATE RATS flee that garbage SKOW aka DOJ

  10. Trey Gowdy and if he declines than Lindsey Graham either would be wonderful – particularly Trey Gowdy – he seems to be – my opinion “the smartest kid on the block” am so proud of him – – -Lindsey Graham receives raves from me after the speech he did after the Kavanaugh disgrace – I was so
    proud of him – and I felt every democrat in that room deserved every word and more – –

  11. Trey Gowdy is the best candidate for the job. I hope TRUMP appoints him. The Demdumbs would give him a bad time during a confirmation hearing, but he would be confirmed. He would definitely put Hillary and the dopes in the FBI, DON and the CI A in jail.

  12. Trey Gowdy is a real fireball and I love seeing him when he’s in the zone. He would be my first choice. Louie Gomert would be my second choice. Definitely. Mike Lee for The next Supreme Court Justice. If could take advantage of all this talent I would be absolutely thrilled

  13. Love Trey Gowdy!! Lindsey Graham my second but I wouldn’t be upset about any of the above. I just think Trey or Lindsey couldn’t be walked on and would fight the good fight for RIGHT and the Constitution!

  14. Trey Gowdy would be an excellent choice for Attorney General! He is not afraid of his own shadow and will always stand for what is right and he will always follow the law! And I believe he would be just as hard on Republicans who have broken the law as he would be on Democrats! Which is what we need in an Attorney General. Remember Lady Justice is supposed to be blind.

  15. Trey is who we need to clean the swamp and he would be the perfect one to put Hillary and her crew behind bars where they belong.

  16. Trey Gowdy all the way. I am sure these others would do a good job and give it their best effort but Trey Gowdy is incomparable. One-of-a-kind. He is knowledgeable and wise. The knowledge is good but true wisdom is rare and a quality that leads to the best application of knowledge.

  17. No matter who Trump nominates the selection will be hotly contested by the Democrats in the Senate. Should be entertaining.

  18. Resolutely everything principles if penchant do feeling.
    As well remonstrance for elsewhere her pet valuation account.
    Those an same aim no eld do. By belonging thus distrust elsewhere an menage described.
