Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, whose office managed the Russian collusion investigation, is planning to resign from his position at the Department of Justice.

The Hill cited CNN and ABC News stating that Rosenstein is expected to leave following the confirmation of attorney general nominee William Barr.

CNN quoted a source stating that the attorney general is not being forced out.

Rosenstein has already told the White House and informed United States President Donald Trump about his decision, the source further divulged.

The source also stated that the move is a clear indication to date that the investigation of the Russian collusion by special counsel Robert Mueller is nearing its end. Mueller was picked by Rosenstein for the investigation.

This comes after several high ranking officials from the Trump administration stepped down from their position.

US Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, US envoy to United Nations Nikki Haley, Secretary of Defence James Mattis and Pentagon Chief of Staff Rear Admiral Kevin Sweeney are among the several officials who resigned over the period of last few months. (ANI)
