Delrahim named to head U.S. Justice Dept's Antitrust Division

WASHINGTON, March 27 (Reuters) - Makan Delrahim, a member of President Donald Trump's transition team, will be nominated to head the U.S. Justice Department's Antitrust Division, the White House said on Monday.

Delrahim is expected to move to the Justice Department after finishing up in the White House counsel's office, where he has worked to steer Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch through the Senate confirmation process.
