Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has acknowledged that he began receiving complaints about then Judge Brett Kavanaugh a early as a week before the contentious Senate hearing with Ford and Kavanaugh.
The complaints, although not specified, are reported to involve statements made by Kavanaugh.
It’s normal for the Supreme Court to refer such ethics complaints to a lower court with most ending up with the 10th Circuit Court, locate in Denver.
The 10th Circuit will review the complaints and eventually make a ruling, but many believe it’s just another Democratic ruse to destroy Kavanaugh and President Trump.
(Fox News) – 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 [Kavanaugh] 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…
In 2010, Barack Obama nominated Elena Kagan to the US Supreme Court.
At the time, she was Solicitor General of the United States, a position she received from Obama.
Kagan was well-known for her ultra-liberal views and tendency to rule on what she believed the Constitution should say instead of what it does say.
The nomination of Kagan of was an afront to most Republicans, but during her confirmation process, they all acted respectfully to her, unlike the way Democrats acted towards Brett Kavanaugh.
Yes, I also believe the ethics complaints filed against Kavanaugh are bogus and just another Democratic ploy to get their way, regardless of what it does to the nation.
