The individual accused of attempting to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has pleaded not guilty in federal court.

Nicholas John Roske, 26, pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to one count of attempting to assassinate a justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Roske allegedly traveled from California to Maryland and showed up in the neighborhood of Kavanaugh during the early morning hours of June 8 and was armed with a knife, pistol, ammunition, zip ties, pepper spray, duct tape, and other items that he allegedly told police that he was intending to use in order to kill the Supreme Court justice.

The individual told police that he had become upset by the leaked draft opinion that could spell out the reversal of Roe v. Wade. Roske also allegedly said that he believed the justice would decide to loosen gun laws following the mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas.
