Daniel Gade, Trump’s EEOC Nominee, Withdraws Nomination


Gade was frustrated that his nomination did not advance further than a Senate committee vote in more than a year

In a phone interview with The National Law Journal, Daniel Gade said that the confirmation process “should not be so painful that it causes good people to run away” and “the EEOC is way too important to leave unfilled at the commissioner level.”  Upon withdrawing his name for consideration, he accepted a teaching position at American University beginning in January 2019. 

In October 2017, both Gade and Janet Dhillon were approved by the committee on health, education, labor and pensions; however, the Senate had not voted on either nominee.  Additionally, the Senate has not voted on Chai Feldblum’s re-nomination.
