President Trump may be closer to selecting a new head to lead the department of justice.
The President is expected to meet with Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi during his trip to Mar-A-Lago for Thanksgiving next week, according to multiple reports today.
Bondi, who is term-limited in her current position, was previously floated as a potential pick on the President’s short-list of candidates to replace Jeff Sessions.
The outgoing state attorney general is a longtime ally of President Trump, recently working alongside him on the opioid crisis and prison reform.
Bondi was approached in February about whether she would accept the nomination is asked.
