Identity of SCOTUS leaker will be revealed ‘in short order’

Published

Supreme Court

While hosting “Sunday Morning Futures,” Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo said she believes the identity of the Supreme Court draft document leaker will be revealed in “short order.”

“We are going to know who leaked that draft opinion in short order,” Bartiromo said. “I’ve got [Sen.] Ted Cruz on the show today, and he basically walked me through it yesterday when we were talking about today’s appearance — that there is — it’s really a small group, 12 people,” Bartiromo added.

“Because it’s three liberal justices that have four law clerks each, a pool of 12 people that people are looking at right now. There is an investigation underway.”

Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz said, “I had several reporters ask today ‘what if it was a justice that did this?’ I gotta tell you, I just don’t believe that,” Cruz said. “It is such a grotesque violation of trust, to me, it is beyond imagination that a justice would do this.”

“To use the nuclear code example, it’s like the president handing the nuclear codes to Putin, it’s just…I cannot believe that even the most left-wing justice would do this,” he added.

“I think it is very, very likely a law clerk,” he said. “And it is very, very likely a law clerk for one of the three liberal justices, that means there are twelve human beings who are your likely suspect pool, that’s not a big likely suspect pool.”

“It is likely to be someone who is a hard partisan, and who was willing to burn the place down because he or she was so upset about what happens,” Cruz continued, “If I were to guess, the most likely justice for whom the law clerk is clerking is Sonia Sotomayor.”

Cruz said his assertion is “because she’s the most partisan of the justices, and so, she’s the most likely to hire wild-eyed partisans as clerks,” he answered, adding that “I have no evidence of that. I’m just making an inference.”

Cruz then went on to address the gravity of the leak itself, which he and many other Republicans have called extremely serious.

“It is difficult to overstate how destructive it is to the Supreme Court, to the independence of the judiciary, to the integrity of the court, to have a draft opinion leaked during the process of deciding the case,” Cruz said.

“In over 200 years of our nation’s history, that has never happened, and there was one woke, little left-wing twit who decided to hell with his or her obligations to the justice they work for, to hell with their obligations to the court, to hell with their obligations to the rule of law, that they would instead try to sneak it out in order to put political pressure on the justices and intimidate them into changing their votes,” he added.

    The identity is most likely already known and the longer it takes the more likely it is a justice who did this.

    I wonder if the leaker will get a statue erected in his name by the dimwits in charge and nothing happens and he gets a promotion. Oh sorry, he she or it or the thousands of titles they have. I guess I will be outraged now and wait for the next outrage, like the republicans do. Schumer threatens on live TV and nothing happens so I don’t expect anything to happen here other than more riots more destruction and yes more deaths.

    Life in prison. Even if it was a Justice. This is high treason.

    It would not surprise me to find out that John Roberts is the source of the leak.

    I believe that Senator Cruz is correct in thinking that the leaker clerks for Justice Sotomayor, but I would be much less surprised that Justice Sotomayor is involved in the leak than Senator Cruz stated that he would be.

    Anyone directly involved with Sotomayer was my first suspicion. But,then, in politics, noone is above suspicion.

    I believe he’s accurate. My first guess and still is Sodomayer. I actually wouldn’t be too surprised if it were Sodomayer herself because those liberals have no integrity-even from a seat in the highest court in the land. I would not even be surprised if all three conspired together and “oops” knew I couldn’t trust ya!I also believe that wicked witch Pelosi has her signature on it just as she did Jan 6. They need our children to maintain control in the future. A GREAT EVIL HAS VISITED US ALL, you’d think we would all be looking to a higher power for help and deliverance but somehow we’ve become self absorbed to where we have no heart, The great KINGDOM OF “ME”. When it becomes all about “me me me” no one else will ever matter, just “ME”.
    God help us return to that place of truth.

    #1. Why haven’t ALL the justices condemned the leak? Also, why haven’t ALL the justices condemned the unlawful protests in front of the homes?

    #2. No one has mentioned the possibility that someone in the copy room could have pirated a copy of the 80+ page opinion. Or any of the staff members for the liberal justices. A law clerk is the most likely, but we don’t know who else had access to the opinion.

    Some people believe there’s a likelihood that it was Roberts himself since he is so determined that Roe not be overturned.

    Because it has not happened before, there is no reason it should NOT happen now. With the loonies, the crazies, the stupid, the imbeciles, the entitled, the effers who want to eff without limitation of any kind, there are plenty of MURDERERS walking the streets.
    Hopefully, this will change!

    I said the same from beginning …Sotomayor. She is such an incomplete woman and lonely too. I will sign my name trusting that it wont leak out. I am emphatic I never divulge it only with complete trust.

    Our governmental departments have FAILED Americans over and over again by NOT processing unlawful actions by politicians and those against American policy. Why have so many voters turned to the conservative belief? Because the “woke liberals” have stomped and spit all over Americans, our peaceful lives, and our American family beliefs as a whole. The “woke generation” are the lowest brainwashed uneducated generation to have passed through our school system. This socialist group only know Abuse and Intimidation of law at its best and for a handful of MONEY. They are so ignorant that they still don’t get it that only the organizers at the top of the antiAmerican chain receive million dollar mansions from NONPROFIT DONATIONS PAC while the underlings get simply bragging rights to other “woke idiots”.

    Sotomayer was my first choice when the leak was revealed. I believe she is a hard core communist and I’m not alone. You can see the hate in her face.

    Wouldn’t surprise me one tiny bit if Sotomayor doesn’t have fingerprints all over this. She’s über librtsl and almost as bad as her little braindead law clerks.she needs to recuse herself from the court permanently

    Who Cares. If it is true, we’ll so be it.
    If it’s a lie then let the court dispute the contents.
    Until they lock Jim Comey Up, a leak will never mean anything.
    It’s not a criminal offense to leak a preliminary finding. Stop wasting our time.

    It is highly probable they already know the identity of the leaker and may have suspected that person from the beginning. The Justices know their clerks very well. Most likely, the delay in the revelation of who leaked the document is that the Justices have to come to a consensus on how to handle the situation. You can bet, as secretive as the Court is historically, it won’t be leaked as to who it is until they have come to that conclusion. It won’t be a rush decision because it will be precedent-setting!

The Republican National Committee (RNC) headquarters in Washington, D.C., was placed on lockdown Wednesday morning after someone sent vials of blood to the building.

“At approximately 7:45 a.m., the USCP responded to the 300 block of First Street, SE, for the report of a suspicious package,” police said in a statement to Fox News Digital. “The package was just cleared by our Hazardous Incident Response Division. It contained two vials of blood. The source of the package and its contents will be further investigated.”

Capitol Police responded to the scene at 7:45 a.m. after a report of a suspicious package, police said. The package contained two vials of blood and was cleared by the Hazardous Incident Response Division, the police told NBC News. The source of the package and its contents are under investigation.

Officers were seen wearing uniforms identifying them as bomb techs and with K-9 units. DC Fire and EMS also confirmed to Fox News they had units on the scene to assist law enforcement while they conducted an investigation.

NBC News  added it is unclear if a suspect is in custody, but the road to the RNC headquarters was later reopened to traffic, and Capitol Police have left the scene.
