Breaking: Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein is Reportedly Resigning After Report of Spying on President Trump

BREAKING: Scandal-plagued Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is resigning

Rosenstein is the active Attorney General and presides over the criminal Mueller investigation of President Trump.

DAG Rosenstein signed a dishonest FISA warrant to spy on Trump in 2017.

Last week The New York Times reported that Rosenstein discussed wearing a wire in a plot to remove the sitting US president.


CNBC reported:

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is resigning, according to Axios, which cited a source familiar with the matter.

“He’s expecting to be fired,” a source close to Rosenstein told Axios, the website reported Monday. He plans to step down, Axios reported.

Rosenstein’s expected resignation will immediately raise questions about the fate of the ongoing investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, who is probing Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, and possible obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump.

The White House did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment on Axios’ report.
