After an armed man was arrested on his way to kill Brett Kavanaugh early on Wednesday, Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) threats against the Supreme Court justice are coming back to haunt him.
Police said the leftist they arrested was upset with Roe v. Wade and wanted to kill Kavanaugh.
As Slay News previously reported, the man was arrested near Kavanaugh’s house at around 1.45 am on Wednesday morning.
In March 2020, Chuck Schumer spoke at a pro-abortion rally where he made direct threats to Kavanaugh over his pro-life stance.
“Now, we stand here today because behind me, inside the walls of this court, the Supreme Court is hearing arguments, as you know, for the first major abortion rights cases since Kavanaugh and Gorsuch came to the bench,” Schumer told the crowd.
“We know what’s at stake.
“Over the last three years, women’s reproductive rights have come under attack in a way we haven’t seen in modern history.
“From Louisiana to Missouri, to Texas, Republican legislatures are waging a war on women, all women, and they’re taking away fundamental rights.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price,” Schumer said.
“You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
New York Post contributor Karo Markowicz said of the arrest:
“A man was arrested outside of Brett Kavanaugh’s residence around 1:45 am last night.
“The man had a gun and said he was there to kill Kavanaugh.
“He was taken into custody without incident.
“I can confirm the man taken into custody outside of Brett Kavanaugh’s house last night is a 26-year-old white male with a California driver’s license.
“Previous address in Seattle.”

He was angry about the Court’s leaked ruling in Roe and the lack of gun control, and reportedly sought to kill Justice Kavanaugh in response.
It’s vital that we know which cable hosts he likes and which magazines he reads so we know who radicalized him and is to blame for this: https://t.co/KvOswu86UR
