Trump Nominates Jeffrey Rosen as Deputy Attorney General

President Donald Trump  officially nominated  Jeffrey Rosen as the next deputy attorney general Tuesday.

If confirmed by the Senate, Rosen will replace Rod Rosenstein.

As Newsy has previously reported, Rosenstein was  expected to step down  from his role in the Justice Department by the middle of March, but  a Justice Department official  has since said he'll stay "a little longer." Rosenstein's departure is right around the corner as special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation concluded  last week .

As the No.

2 official at the DOJ, it was Rosenstein who tapped Robert Mueller in May 2017  to head the probe  after then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself.

Rosenstein oversaw much of the probe, but Attorney General William Barr eventually took over that duty.

Barr previously praised Rosen  in a statement , 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 under President George W.

Bush.
