Trump to meet with Pam Bondi as he searches for new attorney general

Bondi, Florida’s first female attorney general, is finishing her second term. She is not legally allowed to run again, and has been mentioned as a possible administration appointee since Trump became president last year.

Bondi was a Trump surrogate during the 2016 presidential campaign and, more recently, a member of the president’s Opioid and Drug Abuse Commission.

Three sources said Trump is seriously considering Bondi for the job. Bondi’s office did not immediately return a request for comment.

Trump is considering several other well-known officials for attorney general, including Janice Rogers Brown, a retired circuit judge and former California Supreme Court justice who has spoken to the White House about the job, according to a second source familiar with the search.
