Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has officially submitted his resignation letter to the White House,. Rosenstein was expected to leave the Justice Department after the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. His resignation is effective May 11.
In the letter, Rosenstein thanked President Trump for appointing him to the job and “for the courtesy and humor you often display in our personal conversations.”
“We enforce the law without fear or favor because credible evidence is not partisan, and truth is not determined by opinion polls,” he wrote. “We ignore fleeting distractions and focus our attention on the things that matter, because a republic that endures is not governed by the news cycle.”
