Federal Judge Esther Salas was at her home with her family in New Jersey when someone appeared at the door. When Judge Salas’s husband opened the door multiple shots were fired by someone dressed as a FedEx driver.

According to sources who spoke to NBC New York, both Solas’s husband and son are in very critical condition.

“Salas, a judge of the U.S. District Court for New Jersey in Newark, has been in her seat for nine years. Before that she spent five years as a magistrate judge, and nine years prior to that as a federal public defender,” the report said.

It’s unknown who the target was as the Judge’s husband also is a well-regarded criminal defense attorney.

“Salas has presided over a number of high-profile trials in her tenure, including the trial of former ‘Real Housewife’ [star] Teresa Giudice,” said the report.

At the scene are FBI agents, U.S. Marshals, New Jersey State Police and the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General.

Judge Esther Salas is presiding over the Deutsche Bank/Jeffrey Epstein civil case after it was assigned to her 4 days ago.

UPDATE: It was announced that her son died late Sunday night.

Oliver began by remembering Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and noting that her seat will be taken over by a far-right conservative justice who will unmake healthcare, reproductive freedom, LGBTQ rights and more things Americans have indicated they want.

He played a clip of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) claiming that America is a "center-right" country, which Oliver called outright "bullsh*t." Not only do Americans overwhelming support reproductive freedom, they also support LGBTQ equality. At the same time, Americans also believe, overwhelmingly, that President Donald Trump shouldn't be allowed to appoint the next justice.

Democrats are still panicking about the plots that President Donald Trump and the Republican Party seem to be cooking up to circumvent the people's vote in November.

Last week's shocking piece in The Atlantic detailed how electors in Pennsylvania could be manipulated to deliver Trump the vote despite ballots to the contrary. After President George W. Bush's campaign convincing the Supreme Court to stop Florida from counting the 2000 election ballots, there is a fear that Trump too could manipulate the courts to get his Supreme Court justices to deliver him a win.
