Trump Appointments "Excellent Leaders"

By Jay Sekulow1479488126092

President-elect Donald Trump’s top appointments reveal that he is dedicated to elevating excellent leaders to key positions within his new Administration.

Today, President-elect Trump’s transition team announced the nominations of Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General and Representative Mike Pompeo as CIA Director.

These choices are fantastic. Both are excellent leaders who will help set the tone for a Trump Administration that is serious about upholding the Constitution and the rule of law while elevating our intelligence capabilities at a time when our country is facing grave danger from terrorists.

As Attorney General, Sen. Sessions will bring stability and credibility back to a troubled Justice Department under the Obama Administration. Sen. Sessions has the knowledge, leadership, and capability to restore the institutional credibility at the Justice Department. He’s an excellent attorney with a history of standing up for conservative principles in the U.S. Senate. Before serving as a Senator, he served in the U.S. Army Reserve, worked as Assistant U.S. Attorney during the Reagan Administration, and was elected as Alabama’s Attorney General. He currently serves on the United State Senate Committee on the Judiciary.

In Rep. Mike Pompeo, you have a dedicated conservative who understands the need for enhanced intelligence gathering to protect America during this most dangerous time. As CIA Director, Rep. Pompeo is exactly the right person for the job – bringing experience and a commitment to protect America from radical Islamic terrorists. After graduating first in his class from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, he served his country by patrolling the Iron Curtain before the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War. He went on to graduate from Harvard Law School, start small businesses, and serve in the U.S. House of Representatives as a member of the House Intelligence Committee and on the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

These appointments are the first of many by President-elect Trump, setting exactly the right tone for the new Administration to move forward a positive proactive agenda to restore our national security and faith in our Constitution.
