Man Intending To Kill Kavanaugh Arrested Near Justice’s House; White House Deputy Spox Caught Lying

Update (1335ET): In the wake of this morning’s arrest of a gunman near Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house, the White House is doing serious damage control after people began pointing out that former White House spox Jen Psaki encouraged people to protest outside the homes of USSC Justices.

She never encouraged people to protest outside justices’ homes,” tweeted Deputy White House Press Secretary Andrew Bates in response to former Trump Spox Kayleigh McEnany- who then provided a transcript in which he highlights Psaki saying “protests have been peaceful to date.”

In the very next line, however, Psaki says “and we certainly continue to encourage that – outside of judges’ homes.”

(As opposed to, say, “we continue to encourage that – just not outside of judges’ homes”)

In short – the White House’s official position is – or was – that protesting outside Justices’ homes is OK… as long as they remain peaceful.

And we all know what the left considers ‘peaceful’…

Bates is now the recipient of an epic Twitter dragging:

Of note, the man was charged with attempted murder.

An armed man who planned to kill Brett Kavanaugh was arrested early Wednesday morning at around 1:50am outside the Supreme Court Justice’s house.

According to the Washington Post, initial evidence indicates that the man was angry about the leaked Roe v. Wade decision overturning the constitutional right to abortion. He was also angry about recent mass shootings, the Post added.

The man, who is not from Maryland, was arrested without incident after taking a taxi to Kavanaugh’s home. According to authorities, he was stopped near the residence, but not at it.

“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,” reads a statement from the Supreme Court.

Kavanaugh’s home, like those of other conservative Supreme Court justices, was the site of protests last month after the leak of a majority draft opinion that would overturn the constitutional right to abortion. That draft was written by Justice Samuel Alito, another conservative. 

Montgomery County Police Department did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment. A spokesman for the U.S. Marshals Service said the agency was looking into the arrest.

At least one person, Congressional candidate Vernon Jones, suggested that Chuck Schumer’s rhetoric was a factor.

In mid-May, the DOJ said that the Marshals Service would provide “around-the-clock-security” at the homes of all nine justices. According to a spokesman, that security is still in place.
