Trump's Pick For DC Circuit Court Closer To Being Confirmed

President Donald Trump's pick  for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's vacant appellate court seat is a step closer to full confirmation.  The  Senate Judiciary Committee  advanced the nomination of Neomi Rao in a  12-10 vote  along party lines Thursday.  President Trump announced  in November that he intended to nominate Rao to sit on the D.C.

Circuit Court of Appeals after Kavanaugh was appointed to the Supreme Court.   She's come  under scrutiny  from bipartisan lawmakers for her stance on topics like race and sexual assault.

Lawmakers pressed Rao on her controversial college writings indicating that women should change their behavior in order to avoid date rape.  She's since apologized  and distanced herself from that previous stance.  Rao  currently serves  as the administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.  Her nomination will now head to the full Senate floor for a final vote.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
