Need a Special Counsel. Barr didn't do it. It is now squarely up to Rosen.

Concern that it will be broomed in Delaware US Attorney's office.

28 CFR § 600.1 - Grounds for appointing a Special Counsel
§ 600.1 Grounds for appointing a Special Counsel.
The Attorney General, or in cases in which the Attorney General is recused, the Acting Attorney General, will appoint a Special Counsel when he or she determines that criminal investigation of a person or matter is warranted and -

(a) That investigation or prosecution of that person or matter by a United States Attorney's Office or litigating Division of the Department of Justice would present a conflict of interest for the Department or other extraordinary circumstances; and

(b) That under the circumstances, it would be in the public interest to appoint an outside Special Counsel to assume responsibility for the matter.

Yes, that needs to happen, at minimum. There is a lot more that needs to happen also.
