Trump to Nominate Jeffrey Rosen As Deputy Attorney General

The White House says President Donald Trump plans to nominate Jeffrey Rosen as the next deputy attorney general.

If confirmed by the Senate, Rosen will replace Rod Rosenstein, who is  expected to step down  from his role in the Justice Department by the middle of March.

As the No.

2 official in the Justice Department, it was Rosenstein who tapped Robert Mueller in May 2017  to head the Russia investigation  after then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself.

Rosenstein's overseen much of the probe, but now William Barr, who was recently confirmed as the new attorney general, is taking over that duty.

Barr praised Rosen  in a statement  Tuesday, saying "His years of outstanding legal and management experience make him an excellent choice." Rosen  currently serves  as the deputy transportation secretary, which involves overseeing the day-to-day management of the department.

Prior to his time in the Trump administration, Rosen was a senior partner at a Chicago-based law firm.

He also served as general counsel at the Transportation Department and in the White House Office of Management and Budget while President George W.

Bush was in office.
