Rosenstein, frequent Trump target, will leave Justice

WASHINGTON (AP) — Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, a frequent target of President Donald Trump’s wrath for appointing special counsel Robert Mueller and defending his Russia probe, is expected to leave his position soon after Trump’s nominee for attorney general is confirmed.

William Barr, Trump’s nominee, has a Senate confirmation hearing next week and could be in place at the Justice Department by February. Rosenstein is expected to leave soon afterward, according to a person familiar with the plans, who was not authorized to speak on the record and spoke on condition of anonymity.

There is no indication that Rosenstein, who has been deputy for almost two years, was forced out. It is common for new attorneys general to select their own deputies and Barr has told people close to him that he wanted his own No. 2.

Still, Rosenstein’s departure is noteworthy given his high-profile role overseeing the Mueller probe and the tenuous relationship he had with Trump, who has repeatedly decried Rosenstein’s decision to appoint Mueller.
