The media outlet reported that Kavanaugh “was dining at Morton’s downtown D.C. location” as “protesters soon showed up out front, called the manager to tell him to kick Kavanaugh out, and later tweeted that the justice was forced to exit through the rear of the restaurant.” They were evidently given a tip that the justice was having dinner there.
“We hear Kavanaugh snuck out the back with his security detail. @mortons should be ashamed for welcoming a man who so clearly hates women,” tweeted the violent and radical protest group ShutDownDC.

Kavanaugh reportedly finished his dinner but skipped dessert before slipping out the back. He did not come into contact with any of the protesters.
“While the court had no official comment on Kavanaugh’s behalf and a person familiar with the situation said he did not hear or see the protesters and ate a full meal but left before dessert, Morton’s was outraged about the incident,” Politico reported.
“A rep for the chain steakhouse sent [Politico reporter Daniel] Lippman this statement: ‘Honorable Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh and all of our other patrons at the restaurant were unduly harassed by unruly protestors while eating dinner at our Morton’s restaurant. Politics, regardless of your side or views, should not trample the freedom at play of the right to congregate and eat dinner. There is a time and place for everything. Disturbing the dinner of all of our customers was an act of selfishness and void of decency,’” the media outlet added.
NEW: Justice Brett Kavanaugh had to exit through the rear of Morton’s on Wednesday night after DC protestors showed up out front. A Morton’s rep told me: “Politics … should not trample the freedom at play of the right to congregate and eat dinner.” https://t.co/wlA4J2nxYW pic.twitter.com/jpsfhB3JVo

In June, an unhinged man from California traveled to the justice’s home, intent on assassinating him. He did not go through with the plot and evidently has mental issues but he was definitely prepared to take Kavanaugh out.
The left has been notably silent concerning the threat to Kavanaugh’s life. Congress passed a bill enhancing security for the justices following the incident. It appears that it falls short when it comes to threats against Supreme Court justices. The restaurant confrontation could have gone very bad, very fast but fortunately, Kavanaugh’s security detail was able to get him out of there before any violence occurred.
Nearly a month ago, a rogue Leftist attempted to assassinate Justice Brett Kavanaugh at his home.
Joe Biden has still not personally condemned this incident.

The Supreme Court’s chief security official, Gail Curley, has requested that Maryland’s governor enforce a ban on picketing outside the homes of the justices, asserting that threats against them have greatly increased. Kavanaugh’s home is in Maryland.
In the statement asking for additional security, Curley mentioned Kavanaugh’s would-be assassin near his home. He pointed out that the man was carrying a handgun, a knife, and pepper spray. The man freely admitted that he was there to kill the Supreme Court justice for overturning the landmark abortion case Roe vs. Wade and for not imposing gun control.
