Unlike the allegations of Justice Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct and excessive drinking as a teenager, there is no question here about the facts as to what happened, since they occurred on national television. At the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Judge Kavanaugh’s behavior was startingly non-judicial in nature. From the outset in his prepared statement, he was angry and confrontational in manner. He was aggrieved and complaining about the situation in which he found himself. He was impolite and challenged the integrity of the Senate questioners and portrayed the hearing in the starkest partisan terms.


Kavanaugh made no apparent effort to bring a lifetime of professional expertise and perspective to bear on the difficult issues under consideration. Instead, he was dismissive of the inquiry and was careless on matters of fact that had been asserted by other potential witnesses on the subject under discussion. He made obfuscating responses to questions about the meaning of words. He made no apparent effort to hold emotions in check and shouted at U.S. Senators and accused them of wrongdoing. He repeatedly sought to shift the attention and blame to others for what was taking place. He resisted further legal inquiry into the issues under discussion. He approached the inquiry with an attitude of entitlement and self-pity. His conduct was remarkably unprofessional.


Next Steps
The situation is unique in that never before has a Supreme Court appointee joined the court at a time when a fellow judge has concluded that misconduct claims against that appointee warrant review and when a former Supreme Court Justice has concluded that the appointee’s behavior was disqualifying.

Technically, Supreme Court justices are not subject to the misconduct rules governing these claims. But if complaints against a sitting Justice are not dealt with in an impartial apolitical manner, then there will be an asterisk against Judge Tymkovich and Justice Kavanaugh for the remainder of their terms, and indeed the U.S. Supreme Court itself.


DAMN eek

concerning the sexual charges it still is not guilty until proven otherwise.

however, the hearing revealed that he's an unstable paranoid unhinged hostile partisan hack full of shit

or in other words: he fits perfectly to have a leading role in this pseudo democracy bully nation LOL

Discussed in your last Kavanaugh thread that is supposed to be temporarily hidden.

How can Supreme Court justices be impeached?

Yes. A Supreme Court Justice may be impeached by the House of Representatives and removed from office if convicted in a Senate trial, but only for the same types of offenses that would trigger impeachment proceedings for any other government official under Articles I and II of the Constitution.

Ideology aside, Chief Justice Roberts seeks to protect -- or maybe even salvage -- the integrity of the institution. If he swept the allegations under the rug, then SCOTUS' majority of GOP appointees would be seen as conspiring with Trump to sweep Kavanaugh's issues under the rug.

If a bunch of political hacks like the democrats tried to ruin the lives of my family by bringing unfounded accusations against me, I'd be pissed too.

I think he handled himself in a completely honest and open manner.

True genius is knowing how little
you really know.

THANKS FOR NOTHING, BAR ASSOCIATION!!!

American Bar Association drops review of Kavanaugh

Washington (CNN)The American Bar Association will no longer review its "well qualified" rating of Justice Brett Kavanaugh now that the Senate confirmed him, an ABA official told CNN Monday.

The official, who declined to speak on the record, cited an ABA policy of ending its rating process once a nominee is confirmed.
