Trump nominates Jeffrey Rosen to replace Rod Rosenstein at DOJ

Source: Marketwatch

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Tuesday nominated Jeffrey Rosen to be the next deputy attorney general.

Rosen is currently the deputy transportation secretary and oversees the department’s day-to-day operations.

He also served as general counsel and a senior policy adviser at the White House Office of Management and Budget from 2006 to 2009.

Rosen previously worked as a senior partner at Kirkland & Ellis LLP — the same law firm as the new attorney general, William Barr.

According to MSNBC, he has zero experience when it comes to judicial matters, sounds like a typical tRump pick to dilute the investigation

1. He's had a few big, complex jobs in big, complex institutions,

and probably knows somethings about the ways of the govt, better than trump at least. Works for chao now, who is married to turtle.

3. I only hope he isn't a total tool for tRump, he is defiantly no Rosenstein but time will tell.

anything tRump is involved with stinks to high heaven.

10. Aw shit, that's what I thought too.

I saw that Wiki page you posted and thought, “Hm, surprisingly solid pick for a corrupt traitor.” It figures he would pick an inexperienced crony who works for his compromised stooges.

7. That connection makes the effort to quash any investigations into GOP/Trump wrong-doing

all the more obvious, since one can reasonably assume the connection to McConnell will be leveraged to minimize Senate oversight/pushback on obstruction of justice.

8. How can someone be nominated before the person he might replace even announces his resignation?

9. Elaine Chao's stooge.

So is this Mitch McConnell's hand picked POS?

11. I haven't heard Rod Rosenstein say yet that he's resigning

Or am I missing where he said that.

It was September of last year that Individual-1 wanted Rosenstein to depart -- Trump postpones meeting with Rosenstein amid speculation over deputy attorney general's future That turned out to be a nothingburger, but placated Individual-1 all the way up to today.

Fingers crossed that this is all a ploy to keep the gears churning while more big arrests take place.

12. I'm not sure, its been announced on MSM that he is leaving next month, don't think he would

make a public announcement so probably just let the WH know via letter or call, best guess.
