Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand is stepping down from her post as the Justice Department faces intense criticism from President Trump.
The New York Times reported Friday that Brand is resigning after nine months on the job. She is expected to take a job as general counsel in the private sector.
As the No. 3 official at the Justice Department, Brand would be next in line to oversee special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, which Trump has blasted as a “witch hunt.”
