Expert: ABA Lawyers Violated Law With VanDyke Attack

Davis is the president of the Article III Project. He's also the former chief nominations counsel for Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, and a former law clerk to Justice Gorsuch.

VanDyke was attacked by the American Bar Association (ABA) on the eve of his nomination hearing before the US Senate Judiciary Committee. As I told you earlier this week, Davis is pointing out that the ABA violated their own conduct rules when conducting their attack on VanDyke.
