Roberts refers ethics complaints against Kavanaugh to federal judges

In an Associated Press interview, McConnell took issue with President Donald Trump, who has said Alaska voters "will never forgive" Murkowski and that she'll "never recover" politically after bucking her party on Kavanaugh last week.
In a letter addressed to Judge Timothy M. Tymkovich, the chief circuit judge of the Denver-based 10th Circuit, Roberts said he had selected the court to review the identified complaints and "any pending or new complaints related to the same subject matter". Heading into the November midterms, the party is defending its House and Senate majorities. By Senate GOP rules, he can hold the position for six years.

In his Senate testimony last month, in which he denied allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman in high school and accused Democrats of orchestrating a partisan campaign against him, Kavanaugh promised: "I'll be the first justice in the history of the Supreme Court to have a group of all-women law clerks".
Pointing to the media, Trump said he would use the original phrase, except for the media.
However, "Nobody's going to beat her", McConnell said.
Republicans argue top Democrats have only been fueling that characterization, signaling lately that they won't abide by the mantra that former first lady Michelle Obama famously used in the 2016 campaign - "when they go low, we go high".
Trump had earlier mocked the #MeToo movement at a rally in July.
"I think the process itself does not detract from the collegiality that we ought to have", he told Iowa reporters Wednesday.
McConnell warned, "So this business of presidential harassment may or may not quite be the victor they think it is".
McConnell has marveled at the way the Supreme Court fight is animating Republican voters - who, polls showed, had been less enthusiastic before Kavanaugh advanced.
Ultimately, every Democrat voted against Kavanaugh except for Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), was created to highlight what Democrats see as a key issue in the midterm elections: protections for pre-existing conditions.
