Never before in the history of the Supreme Court has there been a leak of a decision before official release. There has and always will be speculation about this leak.
The Supreme Court staff is small and official information is well controlled. Yet, the preliminary ruling for Mississippi’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was leaked to the press. This occurred in early May.
Supposedly the SCOTUS is going to correctly rule that killing of unborn children is a matter for each state to decide. The ruling is supposedly going to rule that the court was wrong originally in declaring that the killing of an unborn baby is a matter on which the court had authority to rule.
We also understand that Chief Justice Roberts disagrees with the opinion of 5 other judges and that even with his vote to support keeping Roe v Wade in its unconstitutional form and continue the endorsement of murdering the unborn, he would be in the minority. We have been informed that Roberts has lobbied other justices to change their votes.
When the leak occurred, we heard outrage from many, but little from Roberts. He did promise that the leak would be investigated, an investigation that knowledgeable people tell us should have been done in days and not weeks.
It is questionable as to whether or not an investigation has been taking place and if one has, it would certainly appear to be for show only with no real intent of identifying the leaker and punishing the leaker appropriately.
This brings me to my wild idea or real possibility. It just might be that Roberts was behind the leak. When Roberts became convinced he could not change the mind of one of the 5 justices necessary to keep murdering the unborn as was declared back in 1973, he might have concluded that public pressure was the means to accomplish his goal. Roberts also knew that he would be the driving force behind any investigation.
We have learned from the FBI that when you investigate yourself, the outcome is the outcome that does the least damage to your or no damage. Roberts, perhaps, concluded that if a large organization like the FBI could continually coverup their illegalities, he could do the same in a small, controlled group.
A logical action to take after the leak, would have been to release the final decision immediately. A cover-up decision, especially if you wanted to still try to change the opinion, would be to delay the release.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
