A source tells Fox News that the Deputy Prosecutor General is expected to be attorney Rod Rosenstein, let the DOJ from mid-March.

President Trump appoints Jeff Rosen to replace outgoing Deputy attorney General Rod Rosenstein, White house officials announced Tuesday that confirms earlier reports and seemingly cementing the fall of the embattled No. 2 to the Ministry of justice.

A graduate of Northwestern University and Harvard Law School, roses, previously served as General Counsel and Senior Policy Advisor for the White house Office of Management and Budget (2006 to 2009) and as General Counsel in the Department of Transportation (2003 to 2006), according to his online biography.

Roses, confirmed for his current role by the Senate in may 2017, working under transportation Secretary Elaine Chao in the supervision of day-to-day business of the Department.

“Jeffrey Rosen, a respected attorney who has served, said at the highest levels of government and the private sector,” Attorney General William Barr said in a statement. “As a lawyer, he has more than 35 years of experience in the courtroom, complex matters in state and Federal courts across the country, including as a partner at Kirkland & Ellis. He supervised more than 400 lawyers and serves as the General Counsel of the Department of transportation and also served as General Counsel and Senior Policy Advisor in the White house Office of Management and Budget.”

Jeff Rosen is working under transportation Secretary Elaine Chao in the supervision of day-to-day business of the Department.

Barr continued: “currently, He acts as the Deputy Secretary of Transportation, where he leads than 50,000 employees. His years of outstanding legal and management experience make him an excellent choice to succeed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has served the Department of Justice over many years with dedication and distinction.”

Rosenstein, who was nominated for his contribution of the asset in the year 2017, repeatedly denied the explosive allegations first leveled last year and revived this week in TV interviews of the former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe — that he strove, to wear a wire to help reduce the President.

McCabe also suggested that the Deputy General state attorney, discussed the idea of relying on the Constitution, the 25th Amendment, regulates the follow-up Protocol, if the President dies, resigns or is temporarily or permanently unable to work. While the amendment has been invoked six times since its ratification in 1967, in the specific section of the amendment, allegedly, Rosenstein discussed — with the majority of the Cabinet, the approval of the officers and the Vice-President, that the President is “unfit” for his job — was never called.

McCabe, charged specifically that he was believed Rosenstein “counting of votes or potential votes” occupations, the change in the procedure.

Congressional Republicans have long descent looking for Rosenstein. A group of 11 house Republicans last July, have been accused of five charges against Rosenstein, and intentionally withholding documents and information from Congress, the non-compliance with the congressional subpoena on the Russia probe and the abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).


Fox News reported in January that Rosenstein was expected to step down in the coming weeks to ensure a smooth transition for Barr, who was sworn in on Thursday.

Rosenstein thought for a long time, its role as that of a two-year position and the two-year mark is coming soon, the officials close to the outgoing attorney General, previously told Fox News.


Speculation of Rosenstein is mounted to the departure, after the dismissal of the former attorney General Jeff Sessions in November. Rosenstein has to examine, until recently, overlooked Special Counsel Robert Mueller, whether in Russia, the 2016 presidential elections experimenting. He is often the target of President Trump on Twitter as well.

The last Trump accused Rosenstein, along with McCabe, an “illegal and treasonable” conspiracy against him followed after McCabe detailed the private DOJ talks about secretly recording and potentially displacement of the President.

“He and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by Jeff Sessions (the other beautiful), look as if they were planning a totally illegal act, and was caught,” the President tweeted on early Monday.


Trump continued: “There is a lot to do to explain to the millions of people who voted had only a President who really likes you and who has done a great job for you with the military, vets, business, and much more. This was the illegal and treasonable ‘insurance’ in action!”

The DOJ, in response, said Rosenstein, “was not in the position to invoke the 25th Amendment,” and denied the accusations.
