BREAKING: He Just Resigned From The DOJ – Here’s His Letter

By

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has resigned from the DOJ and will be effective May 11th.

From RT:

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has submitted his resignation in a letter to President Donald Trump. The resignation will take effect on May 11.

Rosenstein became deputy AG in April 2017, quickly finding himself in charge of the FBI’s ‘Russiagate’ investigation instead of the recused AG Jeff Sessions – and authoring both the memo used to justify Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey and the memorandum authorizing the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel, after Trump’s critics called Comey’s sacking “obstruction of justice.”

The departing deputy AG wrote to Trump he was “grateful” for the opportunity to serve, “the courtesy and humor you often display in our personal conversations; and for the goals you set in your inaugural address.”

Rosenstein’s resignation letter contains several lengthy passages, in which he talks about the importance of nonpartisanship at the Department of Justice. Quoting several former US officials, Rosenstein argues the DOJ “bears a special responsibility to avoid partisanship. Political considerations may influence policy choices, but neutral principles must drive decisions about individual cases.”
