The deputy US attorney general, Rod Rosenstein – who has overseen the Mueller investigation into Russian election meddling – is preparing to leave the US Department of Justice in coming weeks as Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the department is set to take over, officials have told US media.
Rosenstein has had oversight of the US special counsel’s investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible connections to Trump’s campaign. Then attorney general Jeff Sessions, an early Trump supporter during the presidential campaign, had recused himself.
