By a party-line 52-45 vote, the Senate on Thursday confirmed Jeffrey Rosen to be deputy attorney general. He will replace Rod Rosenstein, the longtime Department of Justice official who became target of both Republicans’ and Democrats’ ire for his handling of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. Rosenstein left the Department last week, departing on his own terms after months during which it seemed to appear President Trump could oust him at any moment.
