‘Dozens’ of complaints against Brett Kavanaugh were just ‘dismissed’

2018 has been so long and so awful. It feels strange that we’re not still talking about Brett Kavanaugh, because his nomination to the Supreme Court was THE moment that broke so many of us. Kavanaugh is a sexual assailant, a drunken buffoon, a liar, and a financially compromised piece of sh-t. And he’s on the Supreme Court now, because Mitch McConnell is the devil. In the wake of the successful Kavanaugh nomination, dozens of complaints were lodged against Kavanaugh to a federal judicial council tasked with monitoring and investigating federal judges. Only the watchdog judges had to dismiss all of the complaints because…Kavanaugh was successfully voted onto SCOTUS.

Federal judges reviewing complaints lodged against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh said Tuesday that the allegations against the former federal appeals court judge are “serious” but that they must dismiss them without determining their merits because of Kavanaugh’s October confirmation by the U.S. Senate. Timothy Tymkovich, the Chief Circuit Judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, wrote in an order that “the complaints must be dismissed because an intervening event — Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court — has made the complaints no longer appropriate for consideration under the [Judicial Conduct and Disability Act].”

The decision was widely expected. The Judicial Conduct and Disability Act outlines procedures for filing complaints against federal judges, but the 1980 law does not cover Supreme Court justices. In the order, Tymkovich said that most of the complaints include allegations of false statements under oath during Kavanaugh’s D.C. Circuit confirmation hearings in 2004 and 2006 as well as during his Supreme Court confirmation hearings earlier this year. Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s second nominee to the top court, was accused of sexual misconduct before he was confirmed. He emphatically denied the allegations.

Tymkovich disclosed copies of the complaints with identifying information redacted on the 10th Circuit’s website. They included allegations that Kavanaugh “falsely testified about his personal conduct, behavior, and recollection of events” prior to joining the federal judiciary and that he “displayed partisan bias and lack of judicial temperament.”

Brett Kavanaugh is now the most compromised and least respected person on the Supreme Court, having taken over that position from Clarence Thomas. Like, I’ve always thought Clarence Thomas was and is a f–king joke. He rarely authors any opinion, his votes were almost always tied to Scalia, and he has no constituency within (or outside of) the court. There aren’t lawyers sitting around, defending Thomas’s legal decisions. Kavanaugh will be like that, only worse. His confirmation was the biggest travesty the court has seen since Thomas, and I don’t care – we eventually need to find a way to get this motherf–ker off the court.

    When i read this yesterday I was beyond livid. There really are no words.

    • fishface says:

      He really is such a nasty POS…you can see it written all over his ghastly little pinched face and sphincter mouth.

  2. StartupSpouse says:

    And also vote out Susan Collins in 2020 if she runs for re-election. I won’t forget and I hope you guys won’t either. Even if you can’t vote in Maine, you can still donate to her opponent.

    I WILL NEVER FORGET WHAT YOU DID, SUSAN.

  3. cannibell says:

    He’s scum. Rich, successful scum, but scum nonetheless.

  4. Who ARE these people? says:

    Failed his way up…purest possible example of how the system favors privilege over merit (or even decency).

    • Trillion says:

      bingo

    • Esmom says:

      Exactly. Also a perfect example of how effed up the system is. You’d think making it to the SCOTUS would make scrutiny MORE imperative, not less. It should not be a get out of jail free card. So disgusting.

  5. Maya says:

    Kavanaugh will be forced to resign in 2020 once Democrats regain the Senate & Presidency.

    The Democrats will release every single horrible thing about him.

    • BengalCat😻 says:

      From your lips to God’s ears…I hate his smug fucking face!!

        I cannot believe how many men in my life absolutely didn’t believe Christine Blasey Ford and it made me sick. I told them about my rapes and why I did not report them at the time. They still feel she’s lying.

        Sometimes men just piss me off so much but you know what my fiance when he heard about the rapes was upset but he got over it pretty quickly and I do not think I would still be with him if he hadn’t gotten over it.

    • Karen says:

      That would be the best New Years gift along with the Trump crime family in jail.

  6. boredblond says:

    They can be impeached..but it’s never happened (one pulled a nixon in the 60s and left before impeachment)..but that doesn’t mean the press should forget this lying sob or dismiss the people who wanted to testify but were silenced.

  7. anniefannie says:

    The fact that Ginsberg has to occupy the same bench as this entltled, over privileged scum is criminal.
    I’ll bet he’s been on receiving end of some withering looks from the supremes that earned their appointment as opposed to being a partisan hack…

    • Kaye says:

      Just one . . . I’d love to have JUST ONE picture of Ruth Bader Ginsburg looking down her nose at him in disgust.

  8. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    I despise him. This has been a shit year for so many reasons.

  9. Esmom says:

    Reading this yesterday was almost as surprising as reading that he recently sided with the liberal justices in a case involving Medicaid and Planned Parenthood. He cast the deciding vote, in fact.

    It didn’t make me think he was any less of a monster or demise him any less but it did make me wonder what his plan is.

    • Christin says:

      He’s possibly moderating himself, to distance himself from the possible WH implosion that may occur in the next year or two? The stench of W-gate stayed with a lot of people, and I would imagine this version will be much worse. He could be impeached (unlikely but possible).

      He’s been an operative, so he’s probably thinking in some halfway strategic way.

    • BabyJane says:

      It wasn’t a deciding vote, he just didn’t approve the writ so the case didn’t get heard (and the lower court decision stood). It’s not exactly redeeming behavior- he is probably waiting for a strong enough case.

  10. AnnaKist says:

    The Old Boys Club again. Utterly sickening. They should all be shot with a ball of their own schitt.

  11. Marjorie says:

    I watched the excellet, rage-inducing PBS documentary series about the Presidency and the FBI over the weekend. In the segment about Clinton/Monica there is footage of Ken Starr walking into Congress to testify and you see Kavanaugh scurrying alongside him. I just feel there’s been a giant conspiracy for 20 years to get us here.

    One thing I want to know is if that wonan who sat behind him in the hearings who displayed the white power symbol is one of his clerks now.

    Adam Schiff, Jerome Nadler, have a nice holiday recess, see you in the new year.

    • Bella Bella says:

      It’s no conspiracy. There are plenty of articles that lay out how Kavanaugh was groomed by Starr and the Republican machine to be on the Supreme Court.

  12. Giddy says:

    He’s the worst kind of a$$hole because he’s dangerous. I hope and pray that when Trump implodes his boy Kavanaugh will too.

  13. SJhere says:

    This guy is the walking definition of “Spend your life being an asshole, get away with it, and keep getting promoted” all because he’s got connections.
    I hate the entire way the people in power in Trumps world keep breaking the damn law and constantly getting away with it. WTF??

    I’m so pissed I can barely think. My head just keeps sparking out rage on the injustice of this BS.
    How the hell is this our reality? A President who grabs them by the pussy, and this turd is sitting on the Supreme Court.

    IMO, I want to personally Thank every human being who has served in our Armed Forces because you are the people deserving our respect.

    This current Administration is completely corrupt.

  14. Aimee says:

    Great article in Vanity Fair about his school Georgetown Prep. Entitled prick.

  15. RBC says:

    After watching how this guy acted during the hearings, I get a feeling he will not be on the Supreme Court for long.
    Either he is forced to step down for addiction issues(drinking) or another scandal will come to light. RBG will outlast him

  16. Rebecca says:

    It is my understanding that since he his no longer under the judiciary discipline system, he can be impeached by Congress. It hasn’t been done in 200 years, but if there was ever a time for it, it would be now. Let’s hope for another Blue Wave in 2020 and get this fucker off the court.

  17. Baltimom says:

    If he had admitted that he was a douche bag in his younger years then I think he could have avoided a lot of the enmity that he now suffers. You’d think a Jesuit educated fellow and “devout” Catholic would feel the need to atone for his sins. But his Catholicism is fake just like everything else about him. What a piece of garbage.
