Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein submitted his letter of resignation to President Trump on Monday, ending two years as the No. 2 at the Justice Department.

His resignation is effective May 11.

“I am grateful to you for the opportunity to serve; for the courtesy and humor you often display in our personal conversations; and for the goals you set in your inaugural address: patriotism, unity, safety, education and prosperity,” Rosenstein wrote.

Jeffrey Rosen, who served as second in charge at the U.S. Department of Transportation, is expected to take Rosenstein’s place as long as he’s confirmed by the Senate.

Rosenstein served two tumultuous years after he appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russian interference in the presidential election. The appointment enraged Trump.

Attorney General William Barr applauded Rosenstein for his long career in federal law enforcement.

“Over the course of his distinguished government career, he has navigated many challenging situations with strength, grace, and good humor,” Barr said in a statement. “Rod has been an invaluable partner to me during my return to the Department, and I have relied heavily on his leadership and judgment over the past several months.”
