Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel somehow managed to avoid questioning Joe Biden on a June 9th appearance about the captured assassin who confessed to police that he was attempting to kill Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Throughout the much-discussed interview, Biden and Kimmel talked about the possible ramifications of reversing Roe v. Wade without covering the most significant news of the day: that police arrested Nicholas John Roske, 26, of Simi Valley, California, in the Washington D.C. suburban area of Chevy Chase, Maryland early Wednesday.
Pool reports show that Biden reached El Capitan Entertainment Centre in Los Angeles, California, around 2:36 pm PT on Wednesday afternoon for the taping, which aired later on that night.
News first broke relating to the man looking to assassinate Kavanaugh on Wednesday early morning.
Kimmel did not instantly react to requests for comment.
A DOJ affidavit details how Roske supposedly took a trip to Kavanaugh’s house equipped with weapons and theft tools with the intent to kill the justice and prevent him from ruling on Second Amendment and abortion cases.
Biden has not straight resolved the occurrence, though the White House has actually told The Daily Wire that he condemns the prospective assassin which Biden does not excuse violence.
Throughout Biden’s interview with Kimmel, which aired late Wednesday, the president forecasted that reversing Roe v. Wade would introduce a “mini-revolution” in the November midterm elections.
“I don’t think the country will stand for it,” Biden told Kimmel. “If in fact the decision comes down the way it does, and these states impose the limitations they’re talking about, it’s going to cause a mini-revolution and they’re going to vote these folks out of office.”
“You gotta make sure you vote. You gotta vote to let people know exactly what the devil you think,” he added.
Roske told authorities that he was distressed about the “leak of a recent Supreme Court draft decision regarding the right to abortion as well as the recent school shooting in Uvalde, Texas,” indicating that “he believed the Justice that he intended to kill would side with Second Amendment decisions that would loosen gun control laws.”
“Roske stated that he began thinking about how to give his life a purpose and decided that he would kill the Supreme Court Justice after finding the Justice’s Montgomery County address on the Internet,” the affidavit said. “Roske further indicated that he had purchased the Glock pistol and other items for the purpose of breaking into the Justice’s residence and killing the Justice as well as himself.”
When this event happened, it is not instantly clear whether the Kavanaugh household was at home. The FBI would not comment further to the press on the Kavanaugh household’s location.
