Trump Expected To Nominate Attorney Sullivan No. 2 In State Department: WSJ

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump is expected to nominate attorney John Sullivan as undersecretary of state, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday, citing US officials familiar with the discussions.

Sullivan, 57, has been a partner in the Washington office of the Mayer Brown law firm and served in the George W. Bush administration in high-level positions in the Department of Commerce and the Department of Defense, the Journal reported.

He was initially chosen to become an attorney general at the Pentagon, but the Trump administration recently decided to nominate him for the No. 2 position in the State Department, officials said, citing the Journal.
