Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will leave his position if William Barr is confirmed by the Senate and becomes the next attorney general, multiple news outlets reported Wednesday, citing anonymous sources. Barr’s confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled for next week, and he could be in the job by early February. Rosenstein reportedly plans to leave after that, though an end date has not been set.
