NEW YORK - New York lawyer George Conway, who was in the process of being nominated to head the US Department of Justice's civil division, has withdrawn from consideration.

Conway, the husband of Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway, said in a statement that he was "profoundly grateful to the President and to the Attorney General" for selecting him to serve in the Justice Department.

However, he said, he had concluded that it is "not the right time for me to leave the private sector."

Conway is a partner at the law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz.
