    Default Chief Justice Roberts transfers Kavanaugh misconduct complaints to 10th Circuit

    By Ariane de Vogue, CNN Supreme Court Reporter

    (CNN)Chief Justice John Roberts said in a letter on Wednesdaythat he had transferred judicial misconduct complaints related to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Judicial Council of the 10th US Circuit Court of Appeals for further review.

    Although the complaints were originally lodged with the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, Kavanaugh's former court, the circuit executive of that court asked Roberts to transfer the matters to another circuit out of a "concern that local disposition may weaken public confidence in the process."

    The complaints relate to testimony that Kavanaugh gave last month during his confirmation hearings, according to a source familiar, and do not pertain to his conduct as a sitting judge.

    In a letter addressed to Judge Timothy M. Tymkovich, the chief circuit judge of the Denver-based 10th Circuit, Roberts said he had selected the court to review the identified complaints and "any pending or new complaints related to the same subject matter." Tymkovich can handle the complaints himself, dismiss them or appoint a special committee to examine them.

    According to the Rules for Judicial-Conduct and Judicial-Disability Proceedings, any person may file a misconduct complaint against a federal judge in the circuit in which the judge sits.privacy policy.

    In his letter, Roberts referred to more than a dozen complaints that had been filed between September 20 and October 5.

    Last weekend DC Circuit Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson mentioned the complaints in a news release. She said they "do not pertain to any conduct in which Judge Kavanaugh engaged as a Judge."

    "The complaints seek investigations only of the public statements he has made as nominee to the Supreme Court of the United States," she wrote in the release. According to a source familiar, Henderson dismissed some allegations because she found they lacked sufficient evidence but chose to forward others along.

    Tymkovich is a George W. Bush appointee who is on Trump's Supreme Court short list.

    What do you mean by "You morons just can’t give it up?"

    It's just news. Get over the affront that you feel and deal with it.

    It's the Chief Justice's call. Address your complaints to him.

    Get a load of this... Hillary is gearing up for another Primary run. She knows they still don't have anyone who can beat her so she's going to be their nominee again for 2020.

    I don't believe that any more than I believe that Ivanka will become the UN ambassador.
