On Wednesday, a man from Simi Valley, California was indicted in a plot to assassinate U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh. He was charged with attempted murder against the United States Supreme Court Justice, and faces a possible life sentence in prison if convicted.

Nicholas John Roske was arrested outside Kavanaugh's home in Montgomery County, Maryland on June 8. Roske was armed with items including a gun, a knife and a screwdriver when he was apprehended by police officers. He had taken a taxi to Kavanaugh's home but apparently changed his mind after spotting two U.S. Marshals nearby. Roske then texted his sister, who advised him to turn himself in.

In the affidavit supporting the charge, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) said Roske phoned an emergency call center and informed them he had traveled from California to Maryland with the intention of killing Kavanaugh. After waiving his rights, Roske told the detaining officers he was upset about the recent leak of a Supreme Court draft opinion regarding abortion rights, and the Robb Elementary School shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

Justice Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court by former US President Donald Trump in 2018. He submitted 17,000 pages of material for his confirmation hearing, at the request of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the most comprehensive ever.
