Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has named a new acting deputy of his own. The Department of Justice on Tuesday announced Edward O'Callaghan will be the acting principal associate deputy attorney general.
O'Callaghan will replace Robert Hur, who is taking Rosenstein's old job as the U.S. Attorney in the District of Maryland. O'Callaghan's new position is key, as it will involve oversight of the FBI's probe of Russian election meddling and any ties to the Trump campaign. O'Callaghan has been serving as the principal deputy assistant attorney general for the DOJ's National Security Division.
"Edward O'Callaghan has served the Department of Justice with distinction, excelling as a prosecutor in the Southern District of New York and most recently as the Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the National Security Division," Rosenstein said in a statement. "His experiences in a variety of roles throughout the Department will be invaluable as we work to protect our national security, reduce violent crime, and promote the rule of law. I also want to thank Robert Hur for serving as the Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General. His counsel was invaluable over the past ten months and I look forward to seeing him thrive as the United States Attorney for the District of Maryland."

Wow...so, RR is Boss?
Ed O'Callahan is just as bad as McCabe. Otherwise, Rosenstein would not have appointed him.
Of all things Russia, yes. The elf recused himself so he doesn’t hire people to run the investigation. Although the elf has been involved in things like firing McCabe.
Yep, hes not even pretending anymore that the hapless, meek Sessions is running things.
the elf fired mccabe to avoid getting fired himself.

O’Callaghan has been serving as the principal deputy assistant attorney general for the DOJ’s National Security Division.
This is the DOJ department that signed off on the illegal Fisa court orders. So it seems he’s being rewarded for slow walking the documents subpoenaed by Congress.
Because they are dead-set on ruining FR and are happy to use the same methods we depolore on the left to do it.
FJS... with a colonial accent.
McCain crony...if you set aside the Palin angle:
Wikipedia: Ed O’Callaghan
Edward O’Callaghan is an American Republican lawyer, former co-chief of the terrorism and national security unit of the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York, who resigned from the US Attorney’s Office in July, 2008 to join John McCain’s presidential campaign. One of three leaders of Sarah Palin’s Alaska “truth squad,” O’Callaghan became the public face of Palin’s legal pushback against ethics charges related to her former brother-in-law, the so-called “Troopergate.”...
Those look like some big doors...Can magoo even reach the knockers?
Why set aside the “Palin angle”?
sounds like he did a good job for her.
A “McCain crony” would have sabotaged her, like the rest of McCains team did

Re: Excelled as a prosecutor in the Southern District of New York
That’s New York City, as I recall.
The only “Conservative” who has ever come out of that judicial district is Rudy Giuliani, who was a registered Democrat until age 40.
When the Mueller probe is OVER, Rod Rosenstein will be a GONER!!!
Which may be one of the reasons why it could go on for A VERY LONG TIME.
