No. 3 Justice Department official steps down

No. 3 Justice Department official steps down”

The New York Times did not say that Trump's attacks on the Mueller probe were the reason that Brand was resigning. I know the entire Department of Justice will miss her, but we join together in congratulating her on this new opportunity in the private sector.

Last week, Trump approved the release of the memo that the Democrats called a shameful act to discredit the Department Of Justice (DOJ), the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Special Counsel Mueller's probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, reports said.

Trump also has criticized Sessions for recusing himself. If Rosenstein resigned, that authority would have fallen to Brand under the department's succession line. However, the White House quickly denied any plans to remove Rosenstein.

Brand is the most senior official under Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. He said he wouldn't have appointed Sessions attorney general if he knew he was going to recuse himself from the Russian Federation probe.

A memo written by Republican lawmakers illustrates the criticism leveled against the Justice Department and the FBI's alleged misguided quest to find Trump administration ties in the Russian collusion. That job would now fall to the solicitor general, Noel Francisco.

Just last week, Sessions praised both Brand and Rosenstein, noting that "they both represent the kind of quality and leadership that we want in the Department". Spokespeople for the Justice Department did not immediately respond to TPM's inquiry about the report.
