Clinton Staffer Makes Odd Comment About SCOTUS Leaker

In the wake of news that the Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, pro-abortion Democrats appear to be defending the leak from the nation’s highest court.

The leak is believed to have come from the staff of one of the liberal justices, and possibly even one of the justices themselves, in order to pressure the conservative justices to change their vote as protests & possible unrest takes place.

In the draft opinion, the justices provide a ringing denunciation of the 1973 ruling that guaranteed the right to abortion under the federal constitution and a 1992 decision that effectively maintained it, Planned Parenthood v. Casey. “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Alito wrote in the draft.

“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” he stated in the document, which is titled “Opinion of the Court.” “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

Former National Press Secretary for Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential campaign Brian Fallon praised a potential “brave clerk” who may have leaked what appears to be a preliminary ruling by Justice Samuel Alito overturning Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. It took the “unpredecented [sic] step of leaking a draft opinion to warn the country what’s coming in a last-ditch Hail Mary attempt to see if the public response might cause the Court to reconsider.”

During a campaign where late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia – at the time one of the Court’s most conservative members – died, Fallon was the press secretary, and Democrats sought to capitalize on Roe’s precedent by arguing that it hung in the balance.

However, the plan failed, and Donald Trump won the election, enabling him to select three justices and alter the Court’s balance following the death of late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

The case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization – the subject of the possible leak – was seen as having the greatest potential to overturn Roe in decades by those who are pro-life and pro-abortion.

The Roe decision has caused the death of millions of babies since its 1973 ruling. As a result of its federal abortion access guarantee and its shoddy legal reasoning, this has been regarded by many conservatives as one of the worst Supreme Court decisions of all time.

Accordingly, if the leak is reliable, it would indicate a major breach of trust among the justices and court staff.

Until an official decision is issued, Jeanne Mancini, president of the National March for Life, would not comment.

Despite this, Mancini said that her advocacy group feels the Court should issue a decision “as soon as possible,” emphasizing that “this leak was meant to corrupt the process. It is heartbreaking that some abortion advocates will stoop to any level to intimidate the court no matter what the consequences.”

Major decisions are often subject to multiple drafts and vote-trading, sometimes until just days before they are announced, as draft opinions circulate and draft opinions are subject to multiple revisions. Until the court’s ruling is published, likely within the next two months, the ruling is not final.

CBS News’ Elizabeth Campbell reports that Chief Supreme Court Justice John Roberts will likely enlist the FBI in investigating the SCOTUS leak of the Dobbs case abortion case.

“This is an unprecedented leak from SCOTUS. It raises questions about how the institution will ever recover, and how Chief Justice Roberts will respond,” Campbell posted on Twitter.

“Sources tonight tell [CBS News’ Jan Crawford] he is likely to order a full-blown investigation, involving the FBI, to determine the source,” Campbell continued.

As reported by Politico, five justices – Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett – voted for overturning, while three – Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan – dissented. According to the report, Roberts has not made his decision yet.

As written in February, the ruling would end a half-century of federal constitutional protections for abortion rights, leaving states free to limit or ban abortion. It is unclear whether the draft has been updated since then.

Politico reported that:

No draft decision in the modern history of the court has been disclosed publicly while a case was still pending. The unprecedented revelation is bound to intensify the debate over what was already the most controversial case on the docket this term.

The draft opinion offers an extraordinary window into the justices’ deliberations in one of the most consequential cases before the court in the last five decades. Some court-watchers predicted that the conservative majority would slice away at abortion rights without flatly overturning a 49-year-old precedent. The draft shows that the court is looking to reject Roe’s logic and legal protections.

A person familiar with the court’s deliberations said that four of the other Republican-appointed justices – Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett – had voted with Alito in the conference held among the justices after hearing oral arguments in December, and that line-up remains unchanged as of this week.

The three Democratic-appointed justices – Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan – are working on one or more dissents, according to the person. How Chief Justice John Roberts will ultimately vote, and whether he will join an already written opinion or draft his own, is unclear.

On Feb. 10, a draft of the majority opinion, labeled as a first draft, was distributed to the justices. According to the Alito draft, Mississippi would win its closely watched case on a ban on most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy if the draft is adopted.

“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division.” Alito writes in the draft majority opinion.
