US President Donald Trump has had a series of wins but can it last

US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has sought to put a bruising confirmation battle behind him at a White House ceremony in which President Donald Trump declared him innocent of sexual misconduct and apologised for the heated process.

The allegations center on whether Kavanaugh was dishonest and lacked judicial temperament during his Senate testimony, according to people familiar with the matter.

Roberts revealed the transfer of misconduct complaints in an October 10 letter, report the Washington Post, USA Today and Politico.

Kavanaugh asked several questions during two hours of lively oral arguments involving a federal sentencing law for repeat offenders, three days after being confirmed by the Republican-led Senate despite being accused of sexual assault. She said they "do not pertain to any conduct in which Judge Kavanaugh engaged as a Judge".

Hurricane Michael devastates Florida with ferocity 'like nothing we've seen before'
One of the hardest-hit spots was Mexico Beach , where Michael crashed ashore as a Category 4 monster with 155mph winds. At least 13 people reportedly died in Central America over the weekend as a result of storm rains and floods.

They're accusing Democrats of condoning "mob rule" - a phrase that's popped up in GOP rhetoric since raucous demonstrators opposing Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination harangued Republicans at the Capitol last week. "Folks who feel very strongly one way or the other about the issues in front of us should get out and vote and participate". Judges who receive complaints have a range of options that include dismissing them out of hand, having local judges investigate them or asking Roberts, in his capacity as head of the federal judiciary, to assign the complaints to judges in a different part of the country.

The complaints landed with Roberts because of his role as chief justice of the United States, not because Kavanaugh is now a member of the Supreme Court.

The first public word of the complaints came Saturday when D.C. Circuit Judge Karen Henderson acknowledged that complaints about Kavanaugh had been filed.

Roberts referred the case to the appeals court in New York City.
