(a) When the Commission conducts an evidentiary review, the Commission shall:
1. Require the filing of a verified complaint or report;
2. Notify the judge of the nature of the complaint or report and the name of the person making the complaint or report, provide a copy of the complaint or report, and notify the judge that he or she has the opportunity to present, within such reasonable time as the Commission shall fix, such matters as the judge may choose to place on the record. The notice to the judge shall specify in ordinary and in concise language the complaint or report against the judge and the alleged facts upon which the complaint or report is based. A presentation by the judge includes the right to appear before the Commission, with or without counsel, to confront and cross-examine witnesses and present evidence on his or her behalf and to make a statement under oath as the judge deems appropriate. The Commission may request that the complainant
make a supplemental statement under oath. Any statements, if oral, shall be taken stenographically or by sound recording; and
3. Review and determine requests for discovery.
