About Chuck Rosenberg
Chuck Rosenberg formerly served as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia and for the Southern District of Texas; as a senior FBI official on the staff of two FBI Directors; as Counselor to the Attorney General; as the Chief of Staff to the Deputy Attorney General; as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in EDVA in Norfolk and Alexandria; and as the former Acting Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration.
He joined the Department of Justice directly out of law school, through the Attorney General’s Honors Program, and quickly found the job he enjoyed most - as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia, in Norfolk and Alexandria. There, he tried dozens of criminal cases before juries and briefed and argued many of those cases to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. Rosenberg prosecuted complex financial fraud crimes, public corruption, violent crimes, and national security cases.
He currently works as a legal analyst for MSNBC and NBC, as a senior counsel for a Washington, D.C. law firm, and as an adjunct professor at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, where he teaches National Security Law and Policy. He is a graduate of Tufts University (BA), Harvard University (MPP), and the University of Virginia (JD). Rosenberg also hosted the acclaimed podcast, The Oath, which finished a four-season run with more than ten million downloads.
