Rachel Brand (Associate AG) is leaving the DoJ
For reference she's third in line behind Sessions and Rosenstein and would've been the one to inherit the Mueller probe if the latter was fired. LINK
quote:

Ms. Brand now oversees a wide swath of the Justice Department, including the civil division, the civil rights division and the antitrust division. She helped lead the department’s effort to extend a law that authorizes the National Security Agency’s warrantless surveillance program.

In an op-ed article in The Washington Post, Ms. Brand argued that the law “has been valuable and effective in protecting the nation’s security” and that law enforcement officers would be “at risk” without it. Congress voted to extend that law, Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act, last month.

On Friday, Ms. Brand hosted a summit meeting at the Justice Department on human trafficking. At that event, Mr. Sessions thanked her for her “strong leadership as our third in command at the department.”
I think Solicitor General is next in line? Which would be this guy Noel Francisco until another AAG is appointed. LINK

I don't think this has anything to do with the IG probe. Brand was a Trump appointee she wasn't even at DoJ during the Clinton stuff.

EDIT: It has been pointed out to me that the 2nd sentence is wrong and she was at DoJ (not a position related to the Clinton stuff)

Weird.

Let me guess, 13 threads were also started on r/politics 2 minutes ago.

It doesn’t bother me. I’m perfectly ok with mine being deleted.

Brand has been at Justice for years. Her assistant also stepped down.

The news broke on Twitter about 2 minutes ago. Sometimes multiple threads are just multiple people reacting to a breaking news story.

Trust me when Soros tells me to push a story he wants a lot more for his money than two lousy threads.

I was trying down the road when I heard it. Not sure why he’s making a big deal about it.

You people don't have a clue.

Brand leaving is not good news for Trump. If she replaced Rosenstein, She would actually have reined in the abusive Mueller investigation and tightend up his mandate.

Associate Attorney General (2017–2018) Rachel Brand being sworn in as the United States Associate Attorney General by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. On February 1, 2017, President Donald Trump nominated Brand to be United States Associate Attorney General.[18] Her appointment was confirmed 52–46 by the U.S. Senate on May 18, 2017,[19] and she was sworn in on May 22, 2017. The reauthorization of the 702 section of the surveillance law was a job assignment of the subject according to CNN. [20]

On February 9, 2018, Brand resigned from her position at the Department of Justice.

Oh, I didn't know she was on the PCLOB. Still wouldn't have had anything to do with the Clinton investigation though.
