White House: Rod Rosenstein To Keep Job For Now

The Washington Post reports:

Rod Rosenstein will stay in his job for now and will meet with Trump on Thursday, the White House says. Rosenstein’s future was a matter of considerable confusion Monday morning following reports that he had offered to resign.

Rosenstein has been overseeing the investigation of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, who is looking into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign and whether any Trump associates conspired with those efforts.

It wasn’t immediately clear what Rosenstein’s departure might mean for that investigation, or who would oversee it, although the role could naturally fall to Solicitor General Noel Francisco.
