The United States Attorney General (A.G.) is the head of the United States Department of Justice per 28 U.S.C. § 503, concerned with legal affairs, and is the chief law enforcement officer and chief lawyer of the United States government. The office is currently held by Dana J. Boente, who assumed the office on January 30, 2017, after the firing of acting Attorney General Sally Yates. The attorney general serves as a member of the cabinet of the President of the United States and is the only cabinet officer who does not have the title of secretary.

The Attorney General is appointed by the President and takes office after confirmation by the United States Senate. He or she serves at the pleasure of the president and can be removed by the president at any time; the attorney general is also subject to impeachment by the House of Representatives and trial in the Senate for “treason, bribery, and other high crimes and misdemeanors”.

The office of Attorney General was established by Congress by the Judiciary Act of 1789.
