Well this is a great how-do-you-do. It’s being reported that Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts referred Brett Kavanaugh, the keg-lovin’ newest member of the SCOTUS, for investigation into ethics accusations.
From 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.
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.
I don’t know if we can draw any kind of conclusion about this – it could be that he thinks there’s nothing to the allegations and this is the best way to get them out of the way. OR, it could be that he wants to SABOTAGE Kavanaugh because he’s a 33 and a third member of the assassin’s creed of the deep state!!! Hopefully it’s the former and not the latter…
It appears that Roberts referred the investigation based on a request from last month:
“Last month, a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit asked Roberts to refer the complaints to another appeals court for review after determining that they should not be handled by judges who served with Kavanaugh on the D.C. appellate court.
So we don’t want to make it appear as if it was solely a decision made by Roberts on his own.
