THE rIGHT IS NOT rEPUBLICAN:

GOP Senator Defects, Sinks Trump Judicial Nominee With History of Racist Writing (MARK JOSEPH STERN, JULY 19, 2018, Slate)

Ryan Bounds' nomination to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was derailed on Thursday when South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott announced he could not support the nominee because of his history of racist writing.

Donald Trump nominated Bounds, who currently serves as an assistant U.S. attorney, to the 9th Circuit in September. A staunch conservative, immigration hardliner, and member of the Federalist Society, Bounds appeared to be coasting to an easy confirmation until the liberal group Alliance for Justice uncovered bigoted statements he made as a Stanford student in the 1990s.
