I love it! Just a slight difference in styles from the slithering of the current and immediate past AGs...
Donald Trump has made yet another announcement that will dismay Democrats across the country, and that is his choice for Attorney General. Trump tweeted that his pick for Attorney General is South Carolina conservative Rep.Trey Gowdy, who currently chairs the U.S. House of Representative’s Select Committee on Benghazi.
Gowdy has been a constant thorn in the Obama administration’s side, and has exposed the White House’s incompetence on everything from amnesty to IRS abuses to the illegal deletion of Clinton’s emails.
Trump’s tweet read, “@HillaryClinton’s toast. Dems had better get the”B Team” off the bench. @TGowdySC for Attorney General under President Trump.” This tweet came right on the heels of an announcement that Trump would want Sarah Palin on his Cabinet.
Trump is looking to build a team of influential conservative leaders who have fought against the liberals. He and Gowdy share the same no-nonsense style.

My other guesses are:
Sarah Palin for Energy Sec. ("drill baby drill")
John Bolton (best mustache) as Sec of State.
Gen. Flynn ( a War Democrat) as Chair of Joint Chiefs or Director of Intelligence.
Allen West (no nonsense gun-to-the-head of the enemy) as Sec of Defence.
Ben Carson (brilliant surgeon and social conservative) as Sec of HEW or Surgeon General.
Larry Kudlow (former globalist and now a seen-the-light nationalist) Sec of Treasury.
Huckabee (a good humored southerner who hates the income tax) for IRS.
John Kasich (whose son was a mailman) as Postmaster General.

I see the fat guy from NJ as AG and Cruz as nominee for Supreme Court. He will get confirmed immediately since all Senators want him to disappear from their "workplace:.

In general, I don't think Trump should announce any picks for cabinet posts, unless they are broadly popular and respected across party lines. The MSM is going to dig up all the dirt they can on anyone he announces. Pence is getting ripped for merely eating at Chili's.

But, if eating at Chili's is the worst thing they can dig up on him, the election should be a no-brainer!
I sure they will dig up or make up a lot more about Pence. My point is, you have no choice but to choose a VP in advance. Why choose other cabinet posts before the election and let the MSM have a field day with them?

I don't really care, but I am not sure Gowdy is a good choice, to announce in advance. He could be seen as the type who would use the AGs office to go after political enemies, and I think Americans of sick of agencies of the executive branch being abused for those purposes, after 8 years of Obama. ...
We have had 8 years of the IRS going after mostly conservative groups. In all likelihood they have not properly checked many lefty groups. It is time to have tax auditing fairness. We need to check em all. If some of the elites in the media and Congress don't like their favored groups to be audited, maybe we can finely do away with the current IRS and move to a flat tax with no deductions or get rid of all payroll taxes and replace it with a straight national sales tax.
The only way to defeat the left when it is breaking all the rules is by fighting fire with fire. That is the only way to push them to obey the rules. It is political warfare and it is the only thing the left understands.
