The Presidential Inaugural Ceremony of president-elect Joe Biden is just days away, but there’s a lot going inside the Trump Administration as well. From accusations of large scale vote fraud to shifts in landscapes inside president Trump’s own inner circle.
With Biden set to take charge from 20th January, Attorney General William Barr has submitted his resignation. He had recently voiced his objection to the Trump administration’s accusation of voter fraud.
On Monday, President Trump announced that deputy attorney general Jeff Rosen will now be serving as the Attorney General. He will be the fifth attorney general in Trump’s one-term presidency, however, his tenure is going to be a short one. In his tweet announcing Rosen’s new designation, he described him as “an outstanding person.”
Jeff Rosen net worth is between $9-$23 Million
Jeff Rosen was not a very popularly recognized figure when he started out with the Trump administration as deputy secretary of the Department of Transportation. However, he had amassed quite a wealth through his career as a Lawyer.
According to cheatsheet.com, Jeff Rosen’s net worth can be expected to be somewhere in the range of $9 Million to $23 Million.
William Barr will be stepping down a net week
Both Trump and Barr have been in a shaky zone ever since Barr spoke against accusations of voter fraud. However, he had announced his departure right after the California Electoral College ensured Biden’s victory.
Though Barr has put in his resignation, he will continue to serve till 23rd December. President Trump announced in a tweet that he had a meeting with William Barr and that Barr will be leaving “just before Christmas to spend time with his family.”
In his resignation letter, Barr talked about how the department of justice has consistently worked to protect the people from violent crime. He said he was proud to have served as the Attorney General of the United States of America. In his resignation, Barr wrote,
“Dear Mr. President,
I appreciate the opportunity to update you this afternoon on the Department’s review of voter fraud allegations in the 2020 election and how these allegations will continue to be pursued. At a time when the country is so deeply divided, it is incumbent on all levels of government, and all agencies acting within their purview, to do all we can to assure the integrity of elections and promote public confidence in their outcome.
I am greatly honored that you called on me to serve your Administration and the American people once again as Attorney General. I am proud to have played a role in the many successes and unprecedented achievements you have delivered for the American people. Your record is all the more historic because you accomplished it in the face of relentless, implacable resistance.”
Though many believe that Jeff Rosen has been given the designation only to serve as a scapegoat to take the fallout of Barr’s poor choices during his tenure.
