David Rosen was an Assistant U.S. Attorney who lost his job after the Defiance scandal was killed. He is a stickler for justice and is now the US Attorney for the District of Columbia. David is a stickler for justice and does not approve of Olivia Pope’s methods but they are still friends. He doesn’t stop until he gets justice for a victim and/or brings the person responsible for any crime brought to justice.
David was an up-and-coming Assistant U.S. Attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s office until he lost the biggest case of his career, the prosecution of Lindsay Dwyer. He lost because his frenemy called in a favor to “fix” the case by having it acquitted. After digging too deep into how he lost the case and into Olivia Pope, Verna Thornton used her juice as a Supreme Court Justice and asked the U.S. Attorney, Pat Wexler, to fire David, by calling it “taking some time off.”
He managed to keep his job and still investigate the Defiance scandal, he got more help when he enlisted reporter James Novak to dig deeper, doing investigating that he couldn’t as a U.S. Attorney, especially if he wanted to keep his job. However when James lied on the stand David lost his job at the U.S. Attorney’s office – again – after the failed attempt at unraveling a government conspiracy.
He has since tried to go work at other law firms with no luck; he even attempted to start his own law firm, unsuccessfully. He worked with OPA to help out with cases and for protection of his own against “The Mole.” With the help of Billy Chambers – who he played – he managed to get his job back, but more than that… he was promoted to the District of Columbia US Attorney.
