Senate committee clears two of Trump's EEOC nominees

The Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee voted 13-10 along party lines to approve Virginia solo practitioner Sharon Fast Gustafson’s nomination as general counsel, and 23-0 to clear the nomination of Commissioner Charlotte Burrows, the EEOC’s lone Democrat, for a second term.
