Zelinsky's filing includes this footnote:

"The Court is advised that the undersigned attorney has resigned effective immediately after this filing as a Special Assistant United States Attorney for District of Columbia."

He isn't quitting the DoJ, but rather resigning from that role.

Wonder if this whole mess has anything to do with the DoJ, under pressure from Trump, stepping in in an unprecedented and lawless move today to shorten Roger Stone’s prison sentence (which has yet to be announced)?

Hmm.
