Supreme Court Marshal investigation ‘unable to identify person’ who leaked Dobbs decision

Supreme Court

The Supreme Court Marshal’s report revealed that an investigation into the leaking of a Supreme Court decision draft has been “unable to identify a person responsible by a preponderance of the evidence.”

However, “The investigation has determined that it is unlikely that the Court’s information technology (IT) systems were improperly accessed by a person outside the Court.”

“After examining the Court’s computer devices, networks, printers, and available call and text logs, investigators have found no forensic evidence who disclosed the draft opinion” the report continues.

On May 2, 2022 media outlet Politico published a draft of the controversial Supreme Court decision of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. A decision for the case would eventually overturn Roe v. Wade; a leak was unprecedented and dangerous leading to public outcry and protests, including at the Justices private homes.

After the leak, Chief Justice John Roberts announced he had called upon thee Marshal of the Court to begin an investigation. Hoping to find one or more culprits who leaked the document to Politico seems to have been unsuccessful.

Fox News reports:

An investigation by the U.S. Supreme Court has failed to identify the culprit who leaked a draft Court decision that signaled the overturning of Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 ruling that legalized abortion at the federal level.”

Over the summer sources had said the investigation would initially focus on roughly three dozen law clerks who work directly with the justices. “Those clerks were asked to turn over their phones” added Fox News.

The report discussed that that the Court’s internal IT system was more vulnerable due to people working from home due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

“The pandemic and resulting expansion of the ability to work from home, as well as gaps in the Court’s security policies, created an environment where it was too easy to remove sensitive information from the building and the Court’s IT networks, increasing the risk of both deliberate and accidental disclosures of Court-sensitive information,” the report says.

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
