A man has been arrested outside Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home. He had a gun and told police he was there to kill Kavanaugh.

That’s according to Karol Markowicz, who broke the story, which is now being reported by other outlets, including The Washington Post.


Other information suggests that the man was picked up before actually getting to Kavanaugh’s house, though details are sketchy. What we do know is that he’s from California, and what we can speculate with essentially 100 percent accuracy is that this has to do with Kavanaugh’s leanings on the court.

In fact, those familiar with the investigation are saying the would-be assassin specifically cited the leaked draft overturning Roe v. Wade as his motivation.


The man had a weapon but also burglary tools, which suggests this wasn’t just some crazy person walking around running his mouth. Apparently, he had a plan to enter Kavanaugh’s home to kill him, and law enforcement intervened before the plot was carried out.

As a slight aside, this is why you enforce the laws regarding protesting outside the homes of judges. Thus far, the DOJ has refused to do so. That leads to things like this.
