Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to Step Down by March

Posted February 20, 2019

The US Justice Department official who once oversaw the Russian Federation probe, Rod Rosenstein, plans to resign in mid-March, US news outlets reported. Rosenstein has been overseeing the Russian Federation probe for most of its existence, ever since former Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the investigation.

William Barr, US President Donald Trump's then-nominee for attorney general, testifies during his confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, on Capitol Hil in Washington, DC, on January 15, 2019.

An official announcement of who has been selected to replace Rosenstein could come as early as this week. He and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by Jeff Sessions (another beauty), look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught.

Rosenstein's departure from his post as deputy attorney general has been expected for some time.

According to McCabe, in a lengthy interview that aired Sunday on CBS's "60 Minutes", Rosenstein brought up the possibility of invoking the 25th Amendment of the US Constitution, which provides for the removal of a sitting president for incapacity.

The Justice Department echoed both denials in a statement released last week, saying Rosenstein "was not in a position to consider invoking the 25th Amendment".

President Trump reacted furiously to the interview, tweeting of "illegal and treasonous" behaviour and an "illegal coup attempt".

Rosenstein ceased overseeing Mueller's probe on 7 November when Trump named Matt Whittaker acting attorney general.

Barr called Mueller's actions "grossly irresponsible" and criticized an aspect of the investigation into Trump's potential obstruction of justice as "fatally misconceived", The Wall Street Journal reported in December.
