Just announced: Rod Rosenstein has picked Edward O’Callaghan to be Acting Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General in order to help Rosenstein with the Russia probe. O’Callaghan was a member of Trump’s transition team.
Sarah Kendzior has remarks on the appointment, asking if O’Callaghan doesn’t have reason to recuse himself.
Why is O’Callaghan overseeing the Russia probe when he assisted the Trump transition team, and a key figure from that team has pled guilty? Shouldn’t he have to recuse himself, at the very least?
