Senator Schumer Incited Violence Against Justices, Man Arrested Outside Of Justice Kavanaugh Residence

WASHINGTON, DC (June 8, 2022)– A man was arrested outside of Brett Kavanaugh‘s residence around 1:45am last night. The man had a gun and said he was there to kill Kavanaugh. He was taken into custody without incident.

A man armed with a handgun, knife, and pepper spray was arrested early Wednesday morning near the Maryland home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, law-enforcement authorities said.

The man told police he was there to kill Kavanaugh, who lives in Chevy Chase, a suburb just outside of Washington, D.C. according to authorities.

The man, who is not from Maryland, arrived near Kavanaugh’s home in a taxi. Authorities said he was stopped by police near the residence, but not at it.

The Supreme Court in a statement said: “At approximately 1:50 a.m. today, a man was arrested near Justice Kavanaugh’s residence. The man was armed and made threats against Justice Kavanaugh.”

“He was transported to Montgomery County Police 2nd District,” according to the Supreme Court.”

Senate Republican Communications Center  tweeted “MCCONNELL on SCOTUS assassination attempt: This is exactly why the Senate passed legislation very shortly after the leak to enhance the police protection for the Justices and their families. This is commonsense, noncontroversial legislation that passed this chamber unanimously.”

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan in a statement said that both the U.S. Marshals Service and Montgomery County Police acted “quickly to apprehend the suspect and prevent him from causing any harm.”

The same day, Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) said he was comfortable with the protests as long as they were peaceful.

“My house, there’s protests 3-4 times a week outside my house,” Schumer told reporters.” “That’s the American way, to peacefully protest is okay….So as long as they are peaceful, that’s okay with me.”

Mitch McConnell has condemned Democratic rival Chuck Schumer, who said Republicans and Supreme Court  justices who support overturning landmark abortion rights would “pay the price”.

U.S. House of Representative Vernon Jones tweeted “
