It's being reported that Rachel Brand, the #3 person at the Department of Justice, has resigned. (Jeff Sessions #1 / Rod Rosenstein #2)

Link: www.theguardian.com...

Is she a member of the D.C. SWAMP that's being drained?

As associate attorney general, Brand would have been next to oversee the special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, in the absence of deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein. Jeff Sessions, who sits at the top of the department, previously recused himself from the probe.


Business Insider


Brand, who has been in the job nine months as the department has endured a wave of attacks from Donald Trump and his supporters, is next in line behind Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

WOOF Blister and LEON PINATA say that this further undermines Bob Mueller, and the rule of law!

I believe she got caught-up and possibly sucked-in to the anti-Trump stuff before the 2016 election.

Now she has to quit to avoid a major exposure.

Perhaps she has already given some "closed" testimony that would create some conflicts of interest 🙋

A trump appointee & longtime republican operative, so either she told trump she wouldn't fire Mueller & is being forced out for disloyalty to the would be dictator or she sees the inevitability of Mueller Time not being the happy hour she hoped for.



She was sworn in as the United States Associate Attorney General on May 22, 2017, after being nominated to the position by President Donald Trump and confirmed by the United States Senate.

Brand was part of the legal team representing George W. Bush during the 2000 United States presidential election recount in Florida,[8] and also served briefly as associate counsel in Bush's transition team.[5]

Beginning in 2003,[5] she served as an Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Policy in the George W. Bush administration where she helped shepherd the Supreme Court nominations of John Roberts and Samuel Alito.[8]

Brand's portfolio also included shaping the administration's position on reauthorization of the Patriot Act,[9] in which capacity she testified before the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary on the benefits of using administrative subpoenas in terrorism investigations.[10]


Quite the turnover in trumps "well oiled machine", more a rusting bloated hulk poisoning it's environment.

With all the top Obama swamp creatures leaving the DOJ/FBI, who will be left for the Special Prosecutor to indict, when he/she is put in place by AG Jeff Sessions?

**BREAKING** Fox News can confirm Rachel Brand is stepping down as Associate Attorney General, the number 3 position at the DOJ. A friend of Brand’s says Rachel was, “not looking to leave,” but was approached by a Fortune 500 company with a “dream job.” #FoxNews

A "dream job" for Rachel Brand would be one where she can stab her bosses in the back.

The Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB) is an independent agency within the executive branch of the United States government, established by Congress in 2004 to advise the President and other senior executive branch officials to ensure that concerns with respect to privacy and civil liberties in the United States are appropriately considered in the development and implementation of all laws, regulations, and executive branch policies related to terrorism.[1]
