The DOJ Is Playing Politics With The Attempted Murder Of Kavanaugh Case

Written by Johnathan Carter.

Nicholas Roske stands accused of a grave plan: to kill a prominent Supreme Court justice over his abortion stance. As this case drags on, there’s growing speculation about the Biden administration’s Justice Department and its seemingly slow handling of the matter. It’s been nearly two years since Roske, charged with attempting to murder Justice Brett Kavanaugh, traveled all the way from California to Washington, D.C. Identified as a biological male but sometimes identifying as a transgender woman online, Roske was allegedly motivated by a leaked draft opinion that threatened to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Arriving by taxi at Kavanaugh’s home, Roske made the surprising move to call the police on himself, which led to his arrest along with the discovery of a suitcase full of guns, ammo, and suspicious items like zip ties. Despite what seems like overwhelming evidence, the case has seen numerous delays with no plea or trial date in sight, puzzling many legal experts who see it as a straightforward case now stuck in limbo.

Political Currents and Court Challenges

The slow pace at the DOJ seems to reflect the current progressive push against the Supreme Court, especially following the role its conservative justices played in the potential rollback of Roe v. Wade. This reluctance might reflect broader political narratives, evidenced by President Biden’s recent critiques of the Court and efforts by progressives like George Soros to reshape its structure. Gerard Filitti, a senior counsel, suggests that there may be a strategy to cool off public heat before any quiet plea deal is introduced.

Roske’s case, entwined with his gender identity and the politically charged backdrop of his actions, turns what could have been a clear-cut legal proceeding into a deep ideological clash. This is set against the backdrop of another case where swift justice was meted out to a Florida man for threatening Chief Justice John Roberts, highlighting a stark contrast with the prolonged process in Roske’s situation. The recent request by Roske’s defense for more time only further paints a picture of intentional delay.

Our Take

Watching the ongoing narrative of Nicholas Roske’s attempt on Justice Kavanaugh’s life unfold, we see more than just legal proceedings; it’s a politically charged drama. The Department of Justice appears hesitant to move quickly, likely influenced by the heated political debates around abortion and potential changes to the Supreme Court. This slow progression might well be a tactic to temper conservative reactions and shift the narrative towards supporting progressive changes to the court. Justice must not only be served but also be perceived as timely and fair, irrespective of the political climate. This case should really test the DOJ’s ability to deliver justice without bias—a test it seems to struggle with as justice trudges along too slowly for anyone’s comfort.
