President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team picked Republican Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions to be Attorney General, former Defense Intelligence Agency director Michael Flynn to be National Security Advisor, and Kansas Congressman Mike Pompeo to be head of the CIA.

Also this week, Hillary Clinton gave a speech in which she said there have been times after the election when she wanted to “never leave the house again.”
