    Rod Rosenstein criticizes the Obama administration for their handling of the Russia investigation

    Former Arkansas Republican Governor Mike Huckabee says Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's critical comments of the Russia election interference investigation is a soft way of saying there was a cover up.

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Monday submitted his resignation to PresidentTrump, effective May 11.
    Attorney General William Barr in a statement said Rosenstein served the Justice Department "with dedication and distinction."


    "His devotion to the Department and its professionals is unparalleled," the statement read. "Over the course of his distinguished government career, he has navigated many challenging situations with strength, grace, and good humor."

    Rosenstein previously served as deputy assistant attorney general and U.S. attorney.

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein defends Attorney General Bill Barr's handling of the Mueller report

    In February, Fox News reported that Barr picked Jeffrey Rosen, who currently serves as Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation, to take over for Rosenstein.
    A source told Fox News in March that Rosenstein reached an agreement with Barr to stay at the DOJ "a little while longer" after it was reported he planned to leave by mid-March.

    The deputy resigned after the conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russia. Rosenstein served as the primary liaison between the department headquarters and Mueller's office.

    In recent months, Rosenstein became a frequent target of Trump's ire, after FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe described private discussions about secretly recording and potentially ousting the president in the days after he fired FBI Director James Comey.

    Trump accused them of pursuing a “treasonous” plot against him. Rosenstein, though, denied pursuing recording the president and has pushed back on claims he broached the idea of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump.
