Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) called the nominee for Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, a “welcomed nomination by President Trump,” at a Senate hearing Tuesday.
“[Rosenstein] has dedicated his entire professional career to public service. He’s an experienced prosecutor and administrator,” Cardin said.
Cardin then listed Rosenstein’s qualifications, praising his readiness to serve the Department of Justice.
Some Senate Democrats have threatened to hold up Rosenstein’s nomination as questions have grown over the Trump campaign’s connections to Russia.
