Former Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand was unhappy with her job at the Department of Justice for months, and reportedly left due to fear of having to oversee Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation if Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein was fired by President Trump. Her new role as executive vice president of global governance and corporate secretary at Walmart had been in the works for months, sources told NBC News. Sources also claimed that Brand felt “overwhelmed and unsupported in her job,” especially when key positions in the 13 divisions she oversaw remained unfilled during her tenure at the Justice Department. Brand had worked for the DOJ for several administrations, and The New York Times first reported her departure on February 9.
