Rod Rosenstein to leave DOJ in mid-March

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is expected to leave the Justice Department in mid-March.

Rosenstein’s departure was largely expected, with last week’s Senate confirmation of President Trump attorney general nominee William Barr. New attorney generals usually have at least some say in selection of deputy attorney general, whose office largely runs the Justice Department on a daily basis.

A Justice Department official told CNN the planned exit has nothing to do with the explosive revelations by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe over the past couple days and that Rosenstein always intended to leave after helping with the transition for his successor.

A DOJ spokesperson did not immediately return a request for comment, but in January a DOJ source confirmed to the Washington Examiner that Rosenstein was expected to depart within weeks after serving for about two years.
