Trump Picks Rosenstein's Replacement
President Trump has selected a replacement for embattled Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Per CNBC:

President Donald Trump plans to nominate Jeffrey Rosen as the next deputy U.S. attorney general, the White House said on Tuesday night, the latest shuffle in the Justice Department at a time when it faces close scrutiny over its Russia investigation.

Rosen, currently deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation, would succeed Rod Rosenstein, who appointed a special counsel to investigate possible ties between Russia and Trump's campaign.

Attorney General William Barr welcomed the choice of Rosen, saying in a statement that he had 35 years of experience at the highest levels of government and in the private sector.

Rosensteing will be stepping down in mid-March. As it was reported less than a week ago, Rosenstein held meetings on ousting Trump from office (READ MORE).
