One of President Trump’s best judicial nominees has been blocked by indignant Democrats because of columns he wrote while a Stanford student 25 years ago. Yes: Stanford … as an undergraduate.
In one of these pieces he argued that ethnic identity groups promote campus divisions, and in another he demanded proof “beyond a reasonable doubt” before expelling young men accused of sexual assault. These arguable but mainstream teenage opinions have wrecked the hopes of a Yale Law graduate and a respected federal prosecutor.
Unfortunately, the fine Republican Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina declined to support the Bounds nomination, giving the united Democrats the chance to keep him off the bench. If Republicans gain a few Senate seats in November, I hope President Trump will try again to win confirmation for the eminently deserving Ryan Bounds.
