The California man arrested last month outside of Justice Kavanaugh’s home for allegedly plotting to assassinate Kavanaugh was reportedly trying to kill three more Supreme Court justices.
An FBI search warrant has revealed that 26-year-old Nicholas Roske in a Discord chat room told an anonymous user “I could get at least one, which would change the votes for decades to come, and I am shooting for 3.”
The FBI report would go on to expose Roske’s internet history which showed he looked up “who are the current members of the Supreme Court” and “the best way to stab someone”.
If Roske was successful with his attempt then Roe v. Wade would have never been overturned.
"Two dead judges ain't gonna do nothing," an unnamed user told Roske in a Discord message. "You would die before you killed them all."

The Washington Examiner had more on the story:
A California man who was arrested near Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s Maryland home in June and accused of plotting an assassination attempt said he was “shooting for 3” Supreme Court justices, according to an FBI search warrant affidavit.
Prosecutors have alleged 26-year-old Nicholas John Roske traveled thousands of miles to Kavanaugh’s home with a pistol, ammunition, a knife, and stealthy gear in an attempt to kill the justice on June 8 just after midnight. He used Google to search terms including the most “effective place to stab someone” and “quietest semi auto rifle,” the July 26 affidavit states.
Federal agents have also obtained warrants for several instances of Roske’s online chat history, including messages exchanged with users on Reddit and communication platform Discord.
“Two dead judges ain’t gonna do nothing,” an unnamed user on Discord sent in a message to Roske. “You would die before you killed them all.”
He responded that he “could get at least one, which would change the votes for decades to come, and I am shooting for 3.” It is not immediately known whom the additional targets were.
Roske, who was motivated by anger that Kavanaugh would help overturn Roe v. Wade and in part by persistent mass shootings in the country, was indicted last month by a federal grand jury for an “attempt to assassinate” the Supreme Court justice, according to court records.
The most recent revelations on Roske’s alleged plot came from FBI special agent Ian Montijo, who previously wrote an affidavit detailing Roske’s confessed intention to kill Kavanaugh and then take his own life.

The New York Post chipped in with these details:
The California man charged with the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh googled the “most effective place to stab someone” before showing up at the conservative judge’s home with a stockpile of weapons, according to newly released details.
The revelation was included in an FBI search warrant obtained by Fox News that shed light on other disturbing internet searches by Nicholas John Roske, 26, and alarming conversations he had with online strangers ahead of his alleged ill-fated plot to kill Kavanaugh.
“Roske said that he used his Reddit account to ask individuals, who were unknown to him, questions in order to refine his plan to kill the Justice,” authorities said in the warrant application, according to Fox.
He searched the web for things like “how to be stealthy,” “assassin skills” and “most effective place to stab someone” in the weeks before his alleged June 8 assassination attempt.
He also told another person he planned to “remove some people from the Supreme Court” in order to “stop roe v wade from being overturned” in an ominous forum conversation revealed by the search warrant.
