FoxNews.com reports that
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.
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.
The Denver-based 10th Circuit handles appeals of cases that originate in Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Utah and Wyoming.
The judiciary’s rules allow members of the public to lodge complaints about federal judges. They typically are dealt with by experienced judges in the courthouse or region where a judge serves. Judges who receive complaints have a range of options that include dismissing them out of hand, having local judges investigate them or asking Roberts, in his capacity as head of the federal judiciary, to assign the complaints to judges in a different part of the country.
It’s possible the complaints will never be investigated if the lower-court judges determine they have no jurisdiction over a Supreme Court justice under the judiciary’s ethics rules.
Merrick Garland, the chief judge of the D.C. Circuit, typically deals with ethics complaints, but he apparently stepped aside from complaints against Kavanaugh. Garland had been nominated to the Supreme Court by President Barack Obama, but Senate Republicans never acted on the nomination.
Roberts’ letter was sent to Judge Timothy Tymkovich, the 10th Circuit’s chief judge. Tymkovich was on President Donald Trump’s list of possible Supreme Court nominees.
Complaints? Complaints about what?
Complaints that he was embarrassing the Democratic Senators?
Complaints that he wasn’t just sitting back and taking their abusive questioning?
Complaints that he had finally had had enough and gave it back to them with both barrels blazing?
I swear, the Democratic Party has devolved into the biggest bunch of crybabies the world has ever seen.
George Soros. the Department of Justice, the hierarchy of the FBI, and the Obama Administration itself could not stop Donald J. Trump from becoming the 45th president of the United States of America. However, you cannot tell the Democratic Party and their mindless minions that “Hillary lost…get over it”.
They have been on a crying jag since November 8, 2016 which, when they figured out that their public displays over emotion were not doing any good, has accelerated into shout downs, physical confrontations, harassing civilians while “directing traffic” in Portland, and attempting to somehow get a good man and respected Jurist thrown off the Supreme Court with lies, innuendo, and just downright whining.
Were these sorry excuses for human beings not spanked enough as children?
Did they not get the present that they asked Santa for at Christmas?
Do they have no concept as to how our Constitutional Republic System of Government operates?
Do they not comprehend that they are protesting in favor of a totalitarian system of government?
Do they not comprehend that all of this “acting out” has created a backlash against them?
Did they ever look at an Electoral Map from the 2016 Presidential Election?
Have they still not figured out that average Americans have had enough of their “Radical Change”?
Did they learn nothing at all from the night of November 8, 2016?
Will they learn anything at all when it happens again this November?
Until He Comes,
