United States President Donald Trump lawyer and former Governor of New York Rudy Giuliani (pictured) is being considered as a replacement for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, CBS reported.

Citing sources close to the matter, CBS reported other candidates for the position include outgoing Florida AG Pam Bondi and former AG William Barr. Barr already served at the position under the Bush administration.
