It has been almost two months since somebody leaked a draft decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Up to this point, however, the identity of the leaker or leakers is still unknown to the public and possibly even to the Supreme Court.
A few days after the May 2 leak, Chief Justice John Roberts called upon the marshal of the court to investigate the incident and find out who leaked the draft.
Roberts said at the time that the leaker intended to “undermine the integrity of our operations,” Conservative Brief reported. “It will not succeed,” he said.
He wasn’t wrong. The same justices who supported the decision in February signed the official decision along with Justice Samuel Alito who wrote the majority opinion to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Roberts was against overturning the 1973 decision but upheld the Dobbs portion of it which involved a Mississippi law banning abortions after 15 weeks, according to Conservative Brief.
“This leak was intended to intimidate the justices and threaten the whole institution of the Court,” Republican Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley told The Daily Wire on Monday.
“Thankfully, the leak did not change the outcome of this monumental case, but we need to get to the bottom of what happened and ensure it never does again,” he added.
Josh Blackman, a constitutional law professor at South Texas College of Law Houston, told the Daily Wire that SCOTUS may be waiting until the end of the term to expose the leaker’s identity — if it has been uncovered.
Another possibility is that the leaker/s might just go public themselves.
Blackman thinks “the Supreme Court Marshal is not equipped to perform a full investigation, including cyber forensic work,” he told the Daily Wire. “Her job focuses on maintaining security at the Supreme Court building,” he explained.
The leak has sparked protests and attacks on pro-life establishments and supporters throughout the nation.
It has made the country so divided that it has resulted in a series of violent acts mostly instigated by the far-left.
The Biden administration wants nothing to do with it though.
