The man who is accused of plotting to kill Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh because of what was leaked about the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade has pleaded not guilty in federal court.
Nicholas John Roske, 26, was arrested this month near Justice Brett Kavanaugh's house in Maryland. He was from California and had allegedly gone there to kill the sitting judge to protect Roe v. Wade.
The Washington Post reported at the time that a man from California who was carrying at least one gun near Brett M. Kavanaugh's home in Maryland was arrested after telling officers he wanted to kill the Supreme Court justice.
"Two people who know about the investigation said that the first clues point to the man being angry about the leaked draft of a Supreme Court opinion that showed the court is getting ready to overturn Roe. v. Wade," the Post said.
Documents from the police and the court say that Roske had a Glock-17 pistol, a tactical knife, pepper spray, zip ties, and a crowbar on him.
During his arraignment in a federal court in Maryland on Wednesday, Roske is said to have answered questions about the charges "quickly and clearly" while bowing his head and pleading not guilty.
Shortly after Roske was arrested, the White House said that President Joe Biden "strongly condemns this person's actions and is thankful that law enforcement took him into custody so quickly."
What was said was:
"As the President has said over and over again, public officials, including judges, must be able to do their jobs without worrying about their own or their families' safety. And there is no place in our society for violence, threats of violence, or attempts to scare judges. He's said that himself, and his spokespeople have been very clear about it."
As reports say that the Supreme Court is about to overturn Roe v. Wade, a radical pro-abortion group called Jane's Revenge has threatened domestic terrorism against pro-life pregnancy centers all over the country.
"From now on, any anti-choice group that shuts down and stops working won't be a target anymore. But until you do, it's fair game, and we know where your operations are. The slavers' infrastructure will not be able to keep going. In an open letter, the group said, "We will never stop, back down, slow down, or retreat."
