Justice Department officials have told Fox News that Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein is expected to leave his role in the coming weeks once a new attorney general is confirmed.
Officials have said that Rod Rosenstein wants to ensure a smooth transition for incoming Attorney General Nominee Bill Barr and plans to transition out of the job in the coming weeks.
Officials close to Rosenstein told Fox News he long thought of his time as DAG as a two-year position and the two-year mark is coming soon.
Speculation of Rod Rosenstein’s departure mounted after the firing of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in November. He has overseen Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into whether Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election and has been a target of Trump on Twitter.
