If confirmed, Barr would be in charge of Mueller, unless he too recused himself.
In May 2017, shortly after the president dumped Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey, Rosenstein appointed Mueller to take over the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of Russia's meddling in the 2016 election and possible ties between Russians and Trump associates.
After an embattled turn in that role, Sessions stepped down at the end of past year and was replaced temporarily by Matthew Whitaker as Acting Attorney General.
The transition to Barr would come with critical steps in the Mueller investigation expected to unfold in the weeks and months ahead, when the special counsel's office is expected to report its findings to the Justice Department. Barr is expected to face questioning from Democrats about his views of the Mueller investigation at next week's hearing.
Trump nominated Rosenstein to the post in 2017.
According to ABC News, and other news outlets that reported Rosenstein's impending departure, he is not being forced out of his job.
