US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has been sworn in, again, at an event at the White House but not before President Donald Trump slammed the judge's opponents for a "campaign of personal destruction".

In a letter posted Wednesday on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals website, Roberts announced that he has asked judges who handle ethics complaints for the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals to deal with the claims.

The first complaint, though, was filed September 10 - before the sexual assault allegation came out - and accuses Kavanaugh of lying when he told the Senate Judiciary Committee at a hearing in early September that he hadn't received information stolen from Senate Democrats when he was working in the White House in the early 2000s.

McConnell described protesters "literally storming the steps of the Capitol and the Supreme Court", confronting Republicans at restaurants and shouting from the Senate visitors' galleries during last week's debate and vote on Kavanaugh.

Senators Call for US Probe of Saudi Arabia in Khashoggi Case
Khashoggi had, however, voiced distrust of the Saudi officials, and said they were unlikely to keep their words. A day earlier, the state department called for Saudi Arabia to conduct a thorough probe into the case.

"The complaints seek investigations only of the public statements he has made as nominee to the Supreme Court of the United States", she wrote in the release.

The Denver-based appeals court is led by Chief Judge Timothy Tymkovich, the former solicitor general of Colorado who was nominated to the bench by President George W. Bush. That's when the GOP began accusing Democrats of condoning "mob rule" after raucous demonstrators opposing Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination harangued GOP lawmakers 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".

Each federal court has a so-called "judicial council" to investigate conduct complaints and make disciplinary recommendations.

The move by Roberts is significant because he didn't dismiss the complaints.
