Seems pretty obvious why someone inside the SCOTUS leaked the Roe draft. Many have concluded it was an attempt to undermine the court’s final decision.
And we’ve seen the first half of their plan succeed. Radical leftists have melted down online. They are organizing intimidation campaigns against the justices, hoping to pressure them into changing their decision.
But, as we predicted, their ugly agenda is backfiring. And it appears the justices are even more resolved in their decision.
From Fox News:
The Supreme Court’s final decision will not be affected by leaks, the chief justice says.
Chief Justice John Roberts called the leak of a drafted court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade “absolutely appalling” in a talk Thursday. The justice went on to dismiss any question that the leak would affect the Supreme Court’s final decision…
“If the person behind it thinks that it will affect our work, that’s just foolish.”
Whoever is advising liberals these days needs to get fired. Because everything they do seems to blow up in their collective faces.
Chief Justice Roberts once again condemned the leaked draft, calling the move “absolutely appalling.” He had previously slammed the leak in a statement released this week.
He went on to say that the leak will in no way alter the decision of the court. He called thinking that it would, “just foolish.”
The Democrats, if they were behind this leak (and the subsequent intimidation campaign), were very foolish. And it’s hard to believe they didn’t, seeing that not one prominent Democrat has condemned the leak itself. Only Republicans seem to be angry about this break of our most sacred of institutions.
How did they not realize that leaking this document and inciting harassment would only harden the court’s resolve?
Remember when activists threatened moderate Sen. Collins? They tried to intimidate her into not voting for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
But what really happened? She was outraged that activists thought they could bully her and she voted for the nominee.
The same thing appears to be happening in this situation. The leak was a strategic overreach by the left.
It actually forced the court to stay true to its agenda; otherwise, it would look as if the court was bending to outside forces—something it can never do.
The outrage from Democrats only showed the country that the left is willing to fight and riot over a largely hated practice. They are even threatening justices, something that most Americans would never dream of.
This actually works in favor of the court overturning Roe. Had there been no leak, and the ruling came out normally, Democrats could have had time to prepare a counter-strategy.
But now, they have no ammunition to respond to the rule ruling when it comes out. They already expended their energy by throwing a temper tantrum over a draft opinion. They’ve lost all credibility and clout with Americans.
