Rants and threats from Democrats against the Supreme Court over recent months and years culminated in protests at the homes of conservative justices since the leak of a court decision happened a few weeks ago. A man from California was arrested this morning near the home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh for threatening to kill Kavanaugh. The man had a handgun, a knife, and burglary tools in his possession at the time of his arrest.
The man was initially arrested by Montgomery County, Maryland, police, but the FBI has taken over the investigation. He was to appear this afternoon before a federal judge and to be charged with attempted murder of a federal judge.
CBS cited an FBI affidavit when making the following statement: “Police found in his belongings a black tactical chest rig and tactical knife, a Glock 17 pistol with two magazines and ammunition, pepper spray, zip ties, a hammer, screwdriver, nail punch, crowbar, pistol light, duct tape, hiking boots with padding on the outside of the soles, and other items.”
The man faces a maximum sentence of twenty years in federal prison if he is convicted of attempted murder of a federal judge.
