Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein expected to leave Justice Department in mid-March

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will make his expected departure from the Justice Department in mid-March, The Washington Post reported.

The network said that a departure by Rosenstein next month could suggest the Russian Federation probe being carried out by special counsel Robert Mueller is nearing completion.

McCabe has asserted Rosenstein raised the idea of wearing a wire to secretly record President Donald Trump and talked about which cabinet officials might oust him from office under the 25th Amendment.

Rosenstein had always been expected to leave once President Donald Trump's pick for attorney general, William Barr, took office.

Nevertheless, Barr said during his Senate confirmation that he considers Mueller a friend and a "straight shooter."

Reports emerged last month that Mr Rosenstein planned to quit once incoming Attorney General William Barr took over.
