WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House announced Thursday that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Caroline Crenshaw to fill a Democratic vacancy at the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Crenshaw, a senior SEC attorney, would fill a commissioner slot that has been vacant since February, when Rob Jackson, whom Crewnshaw advised, left to return to his teaching post.
