Things are changing up at the White House once again.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has submitted his resignation and it will take effect on May 11.
Writing to President Trump, Rosenstein shared that he and the officials he worked with had always been “devoted to the values that make America great” and that “we always put America first.”
Rosenstein’s departure isn’t a surprise as many believed he would exit previously in March. He spent a tumultuous time in the White House, hounded by his decision to elect special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate Trump and for the revelation that the politician had suggested he wear a wire to secretly record the president.
He did have some moments of redemption. It was ultimately left up to Rosenstein and Attorney General William Barr to interpret the findings of the Mueller report. Both agreed that the information in the report did not merit charging Trump with obstruction, clearing his name.
Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation Jeffrey Rosen is expected to take the position.
