Lord we ask that You will continue expose truth throughout our government.
A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who breathes out lies will not escape. (Prv 19:5)
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will depart from the Justice Department in a matter of weeks, ABC News reported Wednesday morning.
Multiple unnamed sources told ABC News that Mr. Rosenstein has already informed President Trump about his plans to leave the DOJ once the president’s pick for a new attorney general, William Barr, is confirmed by the Senate and takes office.
The sources explained Mr. Rosenstein is waiting for the confirmation in order to make sure the transition of power between him and his replacement is smooth.
According to the report, the decision was something Mr. Rosenstein considered for two years and isn’t coming from pressure from the president….
Mr. Rosenstein has overseen special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into potential Russian collusion and obstruction of justice since Mr. Sessions recused himself, much to Mr. Trump’s chagrin. (Excerpts from Gabriella Muñoz artcle in The Washington Times)
