Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who had been overseeing the Russia investigation, is expected to leave the Justice Department after President Trump's choice to run the department is confirmed, according to two administration officials. Mr. Rosenstein has been a central figure in the Russia investigation into election interference in 2016 -- both by appointing a special counsel to take over the inquiry and for becoming a target of the president's rage. He had always considered the deputy attorney general job as a two-year stint, one administration official said.
President Trump plans to install an anti-Mueller stooge as the next Attorney General.
