Citing anonymous sources, ABC claims that Rosenstein will leave his position as the nation's number two law enforcement officer around the time William Barr, President Trump's nominee for Attorney General, takes office following a Senate confirmation.
In September the New York Times reported, citing anonymous sources, that Mr Rosenstein had discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th amendment of the USA constitution, which provides for the removal of a president if he is deemed unfit for office.
Barr's Senate confirmation hearing is scheduled to begin January 15, which means a vote would be held mid-February at the earliest, CNN reported.
Rosenstein, who oversaw the Russian Federation probe because of the recusal of Jeff Sessions, has had several close calls during his tenure, which began on April 25, 2017 after his Senate confirmation.
But he has been a frequent target of President Donald Trump's criticism.
After the report broke, Trump promised to get rid of a "lingering stench" at the Justice Department, but weeks later stated that he had a "very good relationship" with Rosenstein, and had "no plans" to give the Deputy AG his marching orders.
Speculation of Rosenstein's departure mounted after the firing of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in November.
Mr Trump has repeatedly railed against the special counsel's probe into claims that Russian Federation sought to influence the election in Mr Trump's favour. At the earliest, Barr's confirmation vote would take place in mid-February.
If confirmed, Barr, who was US Attorney General under the late President George HW Bush from 1991 to 1993, would oversee the investigation led by Mueller, who was chosen by Rosenstein.
Barr was nominated in December to run the Justice Department after Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned at the request of Trump, according to a letter delivered to the White House. "Whether it's Bob Mueller or Rod Rosenstein or Matt Whitaker or Bill Barr, that investigation's going to be handled appropriately by the Department of Justice". His interim successor, acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, consulted with Justice Department officials but ultimately decided not to recuse himself.
