Brand Feared She Could Oversee Russia Probe

Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand “had been unhappy with her job for months before the department announced her departure on Friday,” NBC News reports.

“Brand grew frustrated by vacancies at the department and fear she would be asked to oversee the Russia investigation… As far back as last fall, Brand had expressed to friends that she felt overwhelmed and unsupported in her job, especially as many key positions under her jurisdiction had still not been filled with permanent, Senate-confirmed officials.”
