Roberts refers ethics complaints against Kavanaugh to federal judges

Jimmy Kimmel Mocks Donald Trump’s Swearing-In Ceremony Of Brett Kavanaugh

Kavanaugh gave a forceful, emotional denial of those allegations during testimony before lawmakers that some Democrats said showed a lack of judicial temperament.

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".

James Hodgkinson, who was killed at the scene by officers, was infuriated by President Donald Trump's election, his widow has said.

President Trump said he was apologizing on behalf of the whole country at a ceremonial White House swearing-in after the Senate confirmed the nomination on Saturday despite sexual assault allegations against Mr Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh's first day on the court was yesterday, when he began hearing arguments in Stokeling v.

Fresh off the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, questions arose about what Republicans might do if another vacancy opens on the court in 2020 - and Republican leadership doesn't agree on what they'd do in that situation. The spectacle, in which more accusers and corroborators came forward, nearly derailed Kavanaugh's nomination.

Nearly immediately after the Senate vote, Democrats felt the chill from faraway North Dakota.

Then on Saturday, Democratic Sen.

Meanwhile, Christine Blasey Ford - who said the judge sexually assaulted her at a house party in 1982 when they were high school students - has been unable to move back home because of "unending" death threats, according to one of her lawyers.

Polls have put her Republican opponent, Rep. Kevin Cramer, comfortably ahead.

Now it's a four-week race to tell the story. "A brilliant jurist, a man that did nothing wrong, a man that was caught up in a hoax that was set up by the Democrats using the Democrats' lawyers, and now they want to impeach him". "I think you're going to see a lot of things happen on November 6 that would not have happened before", Trump said Monday as he departed for an event in Florida.

Trump used his introduction of Kavanaugh to slam the judge's opponents.
