Mike Davis Punches Back Against Left's Attacks on Kavanaugh's Female Law Clerks

The same is true of another of Mystal’s punching bags, Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld. Unlike Livas, Chua-Rubenfeld grew up with a lot of advantages, including having two Yale Law School professors for parents.

Feinstein and Harris are acting disgracefully by mindlessly blocking Patrick Bumatay. They should explain why they believe that Bumatay — a Harvard Law grad, former federal appellate law clerk, and current career federal prosecutor in San Diego — is somehow not even worthy of a hearing before their colleagues on the Senate Judiciary Committee.”
