Countable asks: Will the Kavanaugh confirmation influence your vote in the midterms? Tell your reps, then share your thoughts below. (Via Axios)
Chief Justice John Roberts on Wednesday transferred more than a dozen judicial misconduct complaints related to the Supreme Court’s newest associate justice, Brett Kavanaugh, to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Colorado for further review.
The details: The 15 complaints are related to remarks Kavanaugh made during his confirmation hearings last month. They were initially filed with D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals where Kavanaugh served as a federal judge for 12 years before his confirmation to the high court last Saturday.
The backdrop: People familiar with the issue told the Washington Post that the allegations center on whether President Trump's Supreme Court pick was dishonest and lacked judicial temperament during his Senate testimony.
The outcome of the review is unclear. Arthur D. Hellman, a law professor at the University of Pittsburgh, told the publication that the 10th Circuit will likely toss the case “because it is no longer within their jurisdiction,” now that since Kavanaugh’s nomination has been confirmed.

What Justice Roberts did by holding onto the complaints until after Kavanaugh took his seat on the court and then sending them down to a court that no longer has jurisdiction was cowardly and further erodes confidence in SCOTUS. I do however still have faith in the ABA and hope fervently for disbarment.
By confirming Judge Kavanaugh, you have lost my vote. Not only because of the sexual assault allegations. Kavanaugh has a long record of being a partisan republican activist. As a college student who will outlive you, and Judge Kavanaugh , I can say you are incredibly out of touch with what the country wants, and how we want our future to look. Your complicity in making the Supreme Court a republican majority has given us a Supreme Court that is not aligned with our country’s ideologies. I speak for myself, and many fellow college students when I say you have angered us, and we will be at the polls, and
Frankly at this point given the actions of the Supreme Court and the complete lack of integrity of the vetting process of recent justices to the Court the Court in my mind has lost its credibility and relevance. Time for our reps to be calling for a reform of the entire judicial branch
So kavanaugh will most likely laugh at the charges that face him and have the power to throw it away and then attack anyone who was involved at trying to show who he really is. Another ridiculous notion from more idiotic repubs. When will the rape of the average American citizen stop???!!!
‘Liars, Leakers, and Liberals' “DEMOCRATS” We are sadly 😔 seeing our opposition DEMOCRATIC party drifting from Liberal to Progressive Democrats and now we are seeing sadly 😞 seeing a growing segment of Democrats turning to Socialist members, which is tainting its political and social agendas . The country doesn’t deserve or need to see them increasing its expansion of Socialist political influence increased. The SAD 😞 Performance conducted by Senators Feinstein, Blumenthal, Booker and the remainder of the Democratic Senators of the Senate Judicial Committee, supported by remainder of the Senates Democrats, will cost drastically during the 6 November Midterms Elections, Mark My Words....... The Democratic minders have and will continue their using of all of the Saul Alinsky “Rules for Radicals” concepts, including that “If you create and spread a “FALSEHOOD” about an “Opposition”candidate long enough, the “Uniformed” will believe the lie. It’s a “COMMUNITY ORGANIZING” basic. VOTE 🗳 REPUBLICAN FOR ALL THE LOCAL OFFICES TO THE LOCAL STATE HOUSE OFFICES AND All THE WASHINGTON SENATE & HOUSE SEATS OF CONGRESS. VOTE 🗳 REPUBLICAN ON 6 NOVEMBER 10*13*18 ..... SneakyPete..... SEE: For those who don’t already know: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rules_for_Radicals
It’s seems perfectly logical for Chief Justus Roberts to hand these complaints to a neutral court to give them due process, something the Dems seem to have no respect for the basic right. And if you had read more than the basic article, anyone who lives in the district can complain ! Can anyone not believe this is more hate by Dems? You realize DC is 99% demos. Keep ranting & it makes us more determined convicted to show up the poles! And I think this article is incorrect that this doesn’t happen very often. Read that this happened to Justices Roberts,Kagan, Thomas & one other. Mob Dems, try reading more.
What The DemonRats Did To Justice Kavanaugh Is Wrong In So Many Damn Ways! Oh You Better Believe The Red Tsunami Is Coming! The Democrats Have Proven That They Are Incompetent When It Comes To Running The Country! They Can Not Handle Power! Justice Is Coming For The Corrupt Democrats In Washington! I Pray To God That Democrats Never Ever Have A Majority Again!
Yes, this will influence my voting, not just in this election but in every future election as well. Republicans really showed their true colors. I have no intention of every voting in favor of anyone who voted to put a rapist on the Supreme Court. Senator Young, you have permanently lost my vote. Obviously you do not care about me or any of your other constituents who are survivors of sexual assault and harassment. And that tells me everything I need to know about you. Our political system - and our justice system - are in need of a sweeping overhaul and I hope Novemeber will see the start of it.
🚨 DANGER WARNING - ANOTHER MSM ALERT 🚨 🙀 THE KAVANAUGH CONFIRMATION APPROVAL 🙀 I really find it extremely amazing 😉 in seeing, as would be expected, that the MSM (In this case ABC & WaPo) are using their biased polling agencies to deceive the American voters view and approval of JUSTICE KAVANAUGH’s appointment to the SCOTUS. According to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll “More Americans disapprove of, then Americans approve of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, to the Supreme Court of the United States 🇺🇸. Additionally according to them: “The 50-48 vote that confirmed Kavanaugh was closest vote on a Supreme Court justice in more than 130 years. Public opinion on Kavanaugh's confirmation and the investigation is just as divided, WaPo explains. 10*13*18 ..... SneakyPete .....
I wonder if anyone read the summary on the complaints or the origin of those complaints? Justice Roberts should have dismissed them on grounds. One cannot complain about the conduct of a sitting judge prior to their appointment to the judgeship. Logic is being lost to society’s sense of entitlement; it must be my way or it’s just wrong.
Looking forward to President Trump’s next nomination, we need as many originalist on the bench as possible. The courts have been used too long to advance socialists’ agendas, turning it into a de facto legislative arm. Now Congress needs to re-assume its control over the bureaucracy.
Everything connected to Kavanaugh will cast a dark shadow over the entire Judicial Branch. Kavanaugh lied repeatedly during his confirmation. He yelled at Senators. He lost control of his emotions. He showed political bias. All the big names that gave Kavanaugh glowing reviews revoked them. Yale came out in force against his confirmation. The IRS investigation was a sham. One cannot find if one is not allowed to look for. The White House put a limit on the investigation. The Supreme Court doesn't seem to care about it's reputation. The message being sent is clear. The Supreme Court will do whatever it wants. It will only appoint whom it wants. The will of the people have no say in the matter.
It’s a down right shame he held those complaints until Kavanaugh was sworn in. It just goes to show where our justice system is headed. And again shame shame on you Martha McSally, John Kyle, and Jeff Flake for voting him and Trump in. But again jeff flake is in his way out so he doesn’t care about the mess you voted in. This is your America, white mans world and we are just the nuts having to live in 😡😡😥😥
