Sure didn’t take long for Chief Justice Roberts to demand a full-blown investigation into whichever dingbat judge or self-righteous judge’s aide thought it was a good idea to leak a 60-page draft of the Court’s likely overturn of Roe v. Wade to Politico.
After all, while the tawdry halls of legislators are known for leaking garbage left and right to the press, some of which might periodically be true, the Supreme Court has generally been above such dirty antics in the press.
That is, until a new administration took over.
All of the sudden an “unprecedented” leak emerges, which seems rather strange, what with all the talk of court packing and all.
Coincidentally, even court-packing isn’t a new idea, as FDR tried to get 15 justices in the 1930s, apparently purely for the purposes of promoting profligate federal spending, so it would be great if Dems could look forward a bit more with their so-called “new” ideas.
Alas, leaking highly sensitive documents to the press appears to be the best they can come up with in 2022.
“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start … We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled. It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives,” Alito wrote in the leaked draft.
These words are precisely what have sent the lefties across the nation into a complete and total uproar, aided and abetted by a media that doesn’t seem very disturbed by the utter violation of trust in the nation’s highest court.
“Actress” Amber Tamblyn, for instance, claimed that the Supreme Court has “declared war” on women.
“Tonight our highest court declared war on more than half of its citizens – women and birthing people everywhere. The overturning of Roe V Wade is a political act of violence against us and we will not accept it. We will fight and we will not stop. EVER,” the astoundingly uneducated celebrity declared.
Well, guess what, Missus … no need to fight, you furious cow. The Court merely returned the issue of abortion to the state level.
California will undoubtedly continue to have laws that … well laws that permit things that would never be permitted in Texas. Until the lefties take over Texas, anyway, even if it’s via skeptical mail-in ballots.
“Comedian” Kathy Griffin, most famous for her despicable calls to violence against Trump (just google images of her and Trump’s head), also is going berserk, though she apparently has no issues with someone harming a full adult male.
“Roe v Wade has been overturned. Yes I know. Stay in my lane. Well I’d love to be posting about the met gala but this is the only attendee I care about. President Hillary Clinton never would’ve let Roe be overturned,” Griffin sniffed.
Thanks for showing your breathtaking ignorance in all matters civics, Ms. Griffin.
The executive branch is separate from the judicial branch. Separate.
So, pray tell, how exactly would Clinton “never” let Roe be overturned unless she were a full-blown dictator?
Way to give away the Democrats’ end game!
Even clueless Biden picked an inopportune time to weigh in, apparently forgetting his horror at Trump supposedly ignoring checks and balances during his tenure.
“If the court does overturn Roe, it will fall on our nation’s elected officials at all levels of government to protect a woman’s right to choose,” Biden boomed, “and it will fall on voters to elect pro-choice officials this November. At the federal level, we will need more pro-choice Senators and a pro-choice majority in the House to adopt legislation that codifies Roe, which I will work to pass and sign into law.”
By all means, Biden, fixate on ranting and raving liberals while prices shoot through the roof and Russia gets ready to potentially nuke.
Sound plan. Almost sounds like the Easter Bunny came up with it.
Needless to say, people who still respect the rule of law (imagine that), have called out the leak for exactly what it really is.
“The leak appears to be totally political in nature, not only intended to damage the Court and pressure the justices, but more immediately to incite Democrats to push their laundry list of terrible anti-life ideas, including blowing up the filibuster and attempting to codify abortion violence at the federal level prior to the November elections,” declared Katie Glenn, who represents the Government Affairs Counsel at Americans United for Life (AUL).
Absolutely, spot on, correct. In other words, using the exact same tricks they have always accused Trump of.
No wonder they always accused him of the same thing. Clearly, they don’t operate differently on any fundamental level at all.
Carrie Severino, president of the Judicial Crisis Network, also weighed in on the devastation.
“That type of leak is an outrageous betrayal of trust. The Supreme Court is the only institution in town that doesn’t leak, and to do this is a real attack on the institution of the court. Not to mention just an outrageous breach of trust to the justices to do so,” Severino remarked.
Needless to say, CBSMornings promptly began tweeting that an investigation is likely imminent.
“Chief Justice Roberts is likely to order a full investigation involving the FBI into the reported leak of a draft majority opinion, reports @JanCBS – as some question if it will throw the Supreme Court’s legitimacy into question,” the organization tweeted.
Between the cacophony of uneducated celebrity noise and the rationalism of the right, it is not surprising that Chief Justice John Roberts has finally weighed in, beyond the Court’s initial “no comment.”
“Although the document described in yesterday’s reports is authentic, it does not represent a decision by the Court or the final position of any member on the issues in the case. To the extent this betrayal of the confidences of the Court was intended to undermine the integrity of our operations, it will not succeed … I have directed the Marshal of the Court to launch an investigation into the source of the leak,” Roberts declared.
Now, let’s hope the Marshal does a tad better job than the bungling FBI, which is apparently just another arm of the Clinton Foundation.
