Police detained an armed man from California early Wednesday morning near the suburban Maryland home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, saying he threatened to kill Kavanaugh and had a handgun, a knife, and burglary tools.
Kavanaugh is one of at least five Supreme Court justices believed to support a leaked draft of a majority opinion in a major abortion case that would overturn the court’s 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion on demand.
The Kavanaugh residence and those of other conservative Supreme Court justices have been the targets of pro-abortion protesters in the weeks since the leak. Kavanaugh’s house has been the scene of at least two of those protests, on May 7 and May 11. More info here
