Rod Rosenstein, central figure behind Mueller inquiry, expected to step down – official

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is expected to leave his role at the Justice Department by mid-March, a senior DOJ official told Fox News on Monday.

Rosenstein had always been expected to leave once President Donald Trump's pick for attorney general, William Barr, took office.

Rosenstein, the No. 2 official at the Justice Department, in May 2017 named Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate ties between Trump's 2016 presidential election campaign and Moscow.

William Barr, US President Donald Trump's then-nominee for attorney general, testifies during his confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, on Capitol Hil in Washington, DC, on January 15, 2019.

CNN said Rosenstein has widely been expected to leave his job after Bill Barr is confirmed to fill the vacant post of attorney general.

Rosenstein said both the Times story and McCabe's account were "inaccurate and factually incorrect", which a Justice Department spokeswoman reiterated after the "60 Minutes" interview.

But after Mr Sessions was ousted in November, his replacement Matthew Whitaker took over the investigation, refusing to recuse himself despite his previous public criticism of the probe.

Rosenstein said that he did not believe there were grounds to invoke the 25th Amendment to removeTrump, and claimed he was joking when he discussed wearing a wire. "This was the illegal and treasonous "insurance policy" in full action!" the president tweeted.
