Early Wednesday, police arrested an armed man only a block away from Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home. The man, who was charged with attempted murder, said he wanted to kill Kavanaugh and reportedly was carrying a pistol, a knife, and pepper spray. David and Sarah discuss the dangers of releasing public officials’ personal information online and the darker story behind the false sexual misconduct allegations at Kavanaugh’s 2018 confirmation hearing. They also dive into Justice Clarence Thomas’ opinion in Egbert v. Boule, and tackle questions from the mailbag.
