Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein resigned from Justice Department, and it’s effective on May 11.
“I am grateful to you for the opportunity to serve; for the courtesy and humor you often display in our personal conversations; and for the goals, you set in your inaugural address: patriotism, unity, safety, education, and prosperity,”
Attorney General William Barr in a statement said Rosenstein served the Justice Department “with dedication and distinction.”
“His devotion to the Department and its professionals is unparalleled,” the statement read. “Over the course of his distinguished government career, he has navigated many challenging situations with strength, grace, and good humor.”
Rosenstein previously served as deputy assistant attorney general and U.S. attorney.
In February, Fox News reported that Barr picked Jeffrey Rosen, who currently serves as Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation, to take over for Rosenstein. More

That’s great, Rod but don’t forget that you signed one of those FISA extensions… and you might be in huge trouble. Or maybe he has an immunity deal to throw Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden under the bus? Lawyer up, buddy because you just might need it.
He’s been Barred!

Rosenstein knows what is coming, and that people are going to be held accountable. He knows that because he is one of those people.

I wonder if he will be one of the ones indicted for the attempted coup on our President?
