U.S. Senate panel approves Trump’s nominee Rosen to serve as deputy attorney general
The panel voted in favour of Rosen’s nomination in spite of protests from Democrats, who argued that Rosen’s lack of experience as a prosecutor should disqualify him from the job.
Rosen has split his over three-decade career between jobs in the government and stints at Kirkland & Ellis.
According to his biography on the Transportation Department website, Rosen served as general counsel for the White House Office of Management and Budget and the Transportation Department between 2003 and 2009, under President George W. Bush.
He had also worked at Kirkland & Ellis for almost three decades, including for clients like General Motors and Hyundai.
