Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will step down from his post, effective May 11, CNN reported Tuesday.

Administration officials said Rosenstein handed his resignation letter to President Trump on Monday. The report said Rosenstein named Robert Mueller, former FBI director, as special counsel to lead an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections.

In February, Trump nominated Jeff Rosen, deputy secretary at the Department of Transportation, for the deputy attorney general role.
