Watch: CNN Goes Conspiracy Theory Crazy To Downplay Assassination Attempt On Kavanaugh
The drones at CNN were in a panic when news broke that a California man in his 20s allegedly traveled to Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh’s Maryland residence in order to kill him.
Several new outlets including the Associated Press, the Washington Post, and Fox News reported law enforcement officials said a man armed with a knife and a gun was arrested close to the justice’s private residence.
From the Associated Press:
The California man, in his 20s, was armed with a gun and a knife, according to a law enforcement official. The man, whose identity has not been released, arrived in a taxi early in the morning and told law enforcement officers he wanted to kill Kavanaugh, the official said.
The official was not authorized to publicly discuss details of the ongoing investigation and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
The Washington Post initially reported the arrest, quoting sources who said the man also was carrying burglary tools. He told police he was upset by a leaked draft opinion suggesting the court is about to overrule Roe v. Wade, the court’s landmark abortion case, the Post reported. He was also said to be upset over recent mass shootings, according to the newspaper.

She also tries to blame right-wing extremists for possibly trying to carry out the hit, claiming “the risk truly comes from both sides of this abortion debate” pic.twitter.com/fFYKYTA46G
