Rosenstein to step down

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the Justice Department official who has played a central role in overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe, is planning to step down once the next attorney general has been confirmed.

Rosenstein’s impending departure raises significant questions about the future of Mueller’s probe into allegations of collusion between Trump campaign officials and the Kremlin. Rosenstein took on oversight of the Mueller probe in its infancy after then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself over concerns that he had misled Congress during his confirmation hearings about his contacts with Russian officials during the campaign.
