Rod Rosenstein, the U.S. Deputy Attorney General, who appointed Special Attorney Robert Mueller in spring 2017 to investigate relations between the Russian authority and Donald Trump, resigns, as CNN reported.  

“Resigning since May 11, I am thankful for an opportunity to serve, for politeness and humor, which you showed during our personal interviews and for the goals you defined in your inaugural speech: patriotism, unity, security, education and prosperity, because this state exists to serve to its citizens,” Rosenstein’s letter reads.

As Deputy Attorney General noted the average term for this post is 16 months and a few officials work for over two years.

President Trump has criticized him and other American officials from the U.S. Department of Justice. Yet, it does not look like Trump fired Rosenstein.
