Roberts refers ethics complaints against Kavanaugh to federal judges

When does this crap end? We’ve got other important business to attend to. This goes on until the election I bet. I wonder if the media turns it into a circus like last time?

Roberts refers ethics complaints against Kavanaugh to federal judges

Chief Justice John Roberts is referring complaints about statements made by new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to federal judges outside the Beltway.

In a letter posted Wednesday on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals website, Roberts announced that he has asked judges who handle ethics complaints for the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals to deal with the claims.

Roberts said in his letter that he was initially notified of complaints against Kavanaugh on Sept. 20. The complaints deal with statements Kavanaugh made during his confirmation hearings and were initially filed with the D.C. Circuit, where Kavanaugh served for 12 years before joining the high court.

In a statement issued Saturday, D.C. Circuit Judge Karen Henderson said the complaints only "seek investigations ... of the public statements has made as a nominee to the Supreme Court." Kavanaugh was confirmed to the high court that same day after a contentious nomination process that included allegations of sexual misconduct dating back to his days as a high school and college student.

Roberts received the first three of 15 eventual complaints a week before Kavanaugh's angry denial of a sexual assault allegation by Christine Blasey Ford.

5. This is still a fucked up situation.

On the one hand, Roberts has no choice but to refer the complaints to the court that would have had jurisdiction over Kavanaugh when he was still a DC Circuit Court judge. Every complaint, no matter how bogus (and these are all bogus!), must be addressed. But as you say, the DC Circuit Court judges have no jurisdiction over him now as a SCOTUS justice. However, they can still investigate, and they can still, if warranted, contact the DC Bar for sanctions. The Bar then can act or not act on those but again, it will have little real bearing because you don't have to be a bar attorney to serve on the SCOTUS.

This is just the last remnants of the left's smear campaign against him. They have ruined his life even though he was confirmed. No matter how this turns out, he has ethics complaints now against him as a DC Circuit Court judge and he might be sanctioned by the bar. He no longer teachers at Harvard even though in August they loved him but by October, the herd had turned on him like leftist emotional mobs do.

3. Nope.

Even Dershowitz reminds Democrats you have no power now over Kavanaugh. You will never impeach him. It is a done deal. He can't be impeached for something he did prior to becoming a SCOTUS justice.

Just more delusional liberal dreams of power amidst crushing defeat and impotence.

4. won't happen and unconstitutional,

not that Democrats and progressives give a rat's ass about the Constitution.
Impeachment is only for misconduct while on the bench. There is also zero evidence of lying about anything.

The only blue wave coming is the one that is going to hit Canada next year.

6. The House can investigate whatever it wants.

We just need to get the facts out there, but who knows where that might lead? It shouldn't take the House Select Committee more than a couple of years or so.

19. Oh, no. I was well aware that the party that championed Harvey Weinstein

and Roman Polanski had no real concern about the exploitation of women.

It was just nice to see someone acknowledge that the fabricated smear campaign against Kavanaugh was never about the truth or facts.

24. Midterms should be interesting.

What should have been a lock for the Dems to take over the house is now in doubt because their "leadership" decided the best course was to act like a bunch of bat-shit crazy 3 year olds throwing a 2 year long temper tantrum. The public has been watching and is not impressed.

27. Democrats are finally starting to fight back after 3 decades of Republican hyper-partisanship.

Don't like it? Of course you don't. Boo fucking hoo. If you can't take it you should never have dished it out. Nancy Pelosi will turn your venom right back at you.

28. Fighting back?

Is that what you call that shit-storm of a confirmation hearing? Calling the supporters of one's opponent "A basket of deplorables"? Stalking Ted Cruz? Chasing Sanders out of a restaurant? Shooting up a ball field?

Lindsey Graham was absolutely correct; God help this country if the Democrats get back in power.

29. you mean the violent

Red Guard thugs? Let me put it this way: Ask some old timers in, say, Wisconsin or Idaho what they thought when they saw Bull Conner use fire hoses and night sticks on women and old people. It also forced white southerners to take very hard look at themselves. I don't know if we would have progressed as far as we have if it weren't for that TV camera being in the right place at the right time.
Your party has been taken over by socialists and race baiting crackpots. Antifa and RevComm is now the face of your party. I leaned Democrat when the Republicans pushed classical liberals like Barry Goldwater out made their jr high biology teachers cringe and was more concerned with what consenting adults did behind closed doors (of course, Tipper Gore was on her censorship kick).

At the end of day, facts and reason will win out, as will individual and individual liberty.
