Cornelia Pillard’s “Astonishingly Disingenous” Testimony

by Ed Whelan

Power Line’s Paul Mirengoff, who attended yesterday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the nomination of Georgetown law professor Cornelia Pillard to the D.C. Circuit, has written two excellent posts (here and here) discussing Pillard’s “astonishingly disingenuous” testimony. I caught most of the hearing online and share Mirengoff’s overall assessment. I will be eager to add some specific criticisms of my own once I am able to review the hearing transcript.
