A top prosecutor working on the criminal investigation into the FBI’s Russia probe has resigned from the Justice Department after Attorney General William Barr said he plans to reveal its findings before the election.

Tom Carson, a spokesman for U.S. Attorney John Durham of Connecticut, who’s leading the investigation, confirmed on Friday that Nora Dannehy stepped down. Carson declined to give a reason.
