After what can only be described as a “turbulent” tenure (that included a much-talked about appearance with Attorney General Bill Barr recently), Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has submitted his resignation. As you might recall, Rosenstein oversaw Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
In his resignation letter to President Trump, Rosenstein declared that after his time at the Department of Justice, the nation is safer and its elections are more secure. AG Barr also praised Rosenstein.
In a statement, he said Rosenstein has served with "dedication and distinction." He also acknowledged that Rosenstein has been someone he's relied on since returning to the Justice Department. Rosenstein's last day is expected to be May 11th.
