  • Rod Rosenstein to step down

Rosenstein will use his remaining time in the position to assist with Barr's transition into the attorney general role.

Rosenstein, the No. 2 Justice Department official who has spent almost two years in the hot seat after he appointed Robert S. Mueller III to lead an investigation into whether President Trump's campaign conspired with Russian Federation to interfere in the 2016 election, had made it known in recent weeks that he planned to leave if and when a new attorney general was confirmed by the Senate.

Rosen, confirmed for his current role by the Senate in May 2017, works under Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao in overseeing the daily operations of the department.

He was given oversight of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's inquiry into suspected Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election when former Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself.

According to Fox, the new deputy attorney general would be Jeffrey Rosen, now the deputy secretary at the Transportation Department.

Most recently, Trump accused Rosenstein, along with former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, of pursuing an "illegal and treasonous" plot against him after McCabe detailed private DOJ discussions about secretly recording and potentially ousting the president.

How Barcelona could line up against Lyon
Barcelona are likely to make a number of changes to their starting XI when Ernesto Valverde's side take on Lyon . Ex-Rennes winger Dembele warned: "They're a team with very good players and it's very hard to win there".

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.

The New York Times reported in December that Barr wrote a 19-page memo criticizing the opinion that Trump's firing of former FBI Director James Comey amounted to obstruction of justice.

"He and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by Jeff Sessions (another beauty), look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught", the president tweeted early Monday.

A Justice Department official said that Rosenstein's departure is not related to a controversy surrounding his alleged offer to wear a wire during conversations with President Donald Trump, according to CNN.

Rosenstein ceased overseeing Mueller's probe on 7 November when Trump named Matt Whittaker acting attorney general.
