President Trump recently revealed his nominee to replace Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
In a statement Tuesday, the White House announced Transportation Department official Jeffrey Rosen will fill the position.
Rosen serves as the deputy secretary of transportation, and previously worked in the George W. Bush administration.
Rosen has been rumored as the candidate, but President Trump confirmed the decision this week as he submitted his name to the Senate.
This comes as Rosenstein faces scrutiny for allegedly discussing using the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office.
