On Wednesday, Fox News personality Bret Baier reported that U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts wants to reopen an investigation on the newest member of the Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh after receiving more than a dozen misconduct complaints on the judge.
“The situation is highly unusual, legal experts and several people familiar with the matter said,” The Washington Post explained on Saturday. “Never before has a Supreme Court nominee been poised to join the court while a fellow judge recommends that a series of misconduct claims against that nominee warrant review.”
Roberts call comes after sitting on the complaints for weeks, since before Kavanaugh was even confirmed into the Supreme Court last week.
“Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts is asking federal judges outside the beltway to investigate complaints over statements made by now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his contentious nomination,” Baier reported Wednesday.
“Roberts says he received the ethics complaints beginning September 20th, but did not act on referrals until today,” Baier added.
