The California man charge with the attempted murder of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh researched how to commit an assassination and planned on “shooting for 3” justices in the weeks prior to traveling to the Washington, D.C., area, according to an FBI search warrant application.
Nicholas John Roske, 26, allegedly traveled to Kavanaugh’s suburban Maryland home last month with a pistol, ammunition, a knife and burglary gear with the intent to kill the justice over concerns about high court decisions on Second Amendment issues and the court’s conservative majority striking down Roe v. Wade to end constitutional abortion rights.
The FBI said Roske looked up terms such as “most effective place to stab someone” and “quietest semi auto rifle,” CNN reported.
Roske pleaded not guilty last month to the federal charge of attempted murder.
Other search terms from Roske’s phone, which was taken by investigators when he was arrested, include searches such as “assassin skills,” “how to be stealthy” and a list of current Supreme Court members.
Agents filed the warrant application to search Google accounts and online chat logs they thought belonged to Roske.
Poske reportedly told a person over the messaging platform Discord in May that he was “gonna stop roe v wade from being overturned” and would “remove some people from the supreme court.”
The user allegedly told Roske his plan would not work. “Two dead judges ain’t gonna do nothing… You would die before you killed them all,” the unnamed user reportedly said.According to the FBI warrant, Roske responded: “[Y]eah but I could get at least one, which would change the votes for decades to come, and I am shooting for 3.”
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
