President Trump Submits Four FTC Nominations to U.S. Senate

The White House Thursday released the names of four nominees for the Federal Trade Commission.

President Trump nominated Joseph Simons, an antitrust attorney, to serve as chairman, and Noah Phillips, chief counsel for Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Christine Wilson, a Delta Air Lines executive, to hold two GOP seats.

Meanwhile, Rohit Chopra, who served as former assistant director and student loan ombudsman at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, was nominated to fill an open Democrat seat.

President Trump announced his intent to nominate FTC Acting Chairman Maureen Ohlhausen as a judge on the U.S. Court of Federal Claims Jan. 23.

“I congratulate Christine Wilson, Noah Phillips and Rohit Chopra on their nominations to serve as Commissioners and Joseph Simons on his nomination as Chairman. I wish them all well in their respective confirmation processes,” Ohlhausen said in a statement issued Jan. 25.

Politico also reports that Democrat Terrell McSweeny appears poised to leave the commission, since the White House said Simons will take her seat.
