With ex-Goldman and Soros employee Steven Mnuchin groomed to be Trump's new Treasury Secretary, as Bloomberg reported earlier today, there was just one big question mark remaining: who would fill the other top post in Trump's government: the Secretary of State. The answer arrived moments ago courtesy of AP, which reported that contrary to earlier speculation that Rudy Giuliani would be Trump's Attorney General, the former NY mayor is set to become the top US diplomat under Trump.
The pick of Giulani for SecState means that Senator Jeff Sessions is likely to be Trump's pick for DOJ. The AP notes adds that Sessions has been meeting with Trump officials on Monday evening. Miller says Trump “would be lucky to have him in any capacity and vice versa.”
