Maryland leaders hope state’s long-serving U.S. attorney will survive Trump transition

November 22nd, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Law enforcement officials and elected leaders in Maryland are expressing bipartisan hope — and confidence — that U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein will continue in his role as the state's top federal prosecutor under President-elect Donald J. Trump.

Rosenstein — currently the nation's longest-serving U.S. attorney — was appointed by Republican President George W. Bush in 2005 and remained on the job under Democratic President Barack Obama, in part on the strength of his reputation as a serious professional and "straight shooter."

That reputation has survived the last eight years, officials said, and should serve him again as Trump's transition team reviews political appointments.
