Chuck Rosenberg worked at the highest levels of the Justice Department and on its biggest terrorism, espionage, and public corruption cases.  He ran the DEA, served on the staff of FBI Directors Mueller and Comey, and as the United States Attorney in two crucial judicial districts. Chuck appears regularly on MSNBC as a legal analyst.

Chuck Rosenberg worked at the highest levels of the Justice Department for more than two decades. He started as a “line” prosecutor, trying dozens of criminal cases in federal court. He is the only person to serve on the staff of FBI Director Mueller (post 9/11, as Counsel) and FBI Director Comey (from 2013-2015, as Chief of Staff) before running the Drug Enforcement Administration under President Obama. 

A career, non-partisan professional, he also served as Counselor to Attorney General John Ashcroft, where he handled national security matters. President Bush nominated – and the Senate unanimously confirmed – Chuck to serve as the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, one of the most prestigious prosecutorial posts in the nation, routinely charged with supervising our country’s most sensitive national security cases. Chuck also served as the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Texas – a district that includes a large swath of the U.S. – Mexico border.

Chuck’s work as a federal prosecutor, at the FBI, and at the DEA gives him unique insights into these crucial federal law enforcement agencies and a deep appreciation of the complex challenges they – and we – currently face. 

Chuck routinely shares his experience and insights on national television, as an MSNBC legal analyst.

The Opioid Crisis

Drawing on his experience running the DEA, and his more than two decades at the highest levels of federal law enforcement, Chuck provides a fascinating inside look at the opioid crisis – how did this epidemic start, what continues to fuel it, where is it headed, and what can we do as a nation to address it? Chuck believes there is an important role for law enforcement in this calamity, but that it is primarily a public health crisis that must be addressed through education, treatment, rehabilitation, and a change in the culture of pain management.

Chuck welcomes the opportunity to respond to questions from audiences, which provides a further opportunity for him to share his unique and candid perspective and engage in an active conversation on the most important issues of the day.

Russia, Mueller, and the FBI

As the only person to serve on the staff of FBI Directors Bob Mueller and Jim Comey, and as a former United States Attorney handling complex and sensitive national security cases, Chuck is uniquely situated to provide a fascinating insight into the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our electoral process, the techniques and strategies that prosecutors and FBI agents use to investigate multifaceted counterintelligence and criminal matters, and the implications of the investigation – and its fallout – on the FBI and the intelligence community.
