Bloomberg Editorial: Kavanaugh Confirmation Is a Loss for Supreme Court’s Reputation

Kavanaugh doesn’t belong on the Supreme Court for many reasons. We must continue the fight until he is impeached:

President Trump has secured Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell has kept his promise to “plow right through” all obstacles. Against the odds, or so it seemed in recent days, they got their way. The country will bear the costs of their victory for many years, and the toll could be grave.

There is a basis on which we can continue the fight against an ethically challenged Kavanaugh:

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. has received more than a dozen judicial misconduct complaints in recent weeks against Brett M. Kavanaugh, who was confirmed as a Supreme Court justice Saturday, but has chosen for the time being not to refer them to a judicial panel for investigation.

A judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit — the court on which Kavanaugh serves — passed on to Roberts a string of complaints the court received starting three weeks ago, said four people familiar with the matter.

That judge, Karen LeCraft Henderson, had dismissed other complaints against Kavanaugh as frivolous, but she concluded that some were substantive enough that they should not be handled by Kavanaugh’s fellow judges in the D.C. Circuit.
