Supreme Court Clerks Asked to Provide Phone Records Following Unprecedented Leak

Officials are ramping up their investigation into who leaked a Supreme Court opinion draft by requiring clerks to hand over phone records and sign affidavits.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Following the leak of a draft opinion in Dobbs v. Women’s Health Organizationon May 2 that signaled the majority of high court justices were prepared to return the question of abortion’s legality over to the states, Chief Justice John Roberts reportedly met with law clerks as a group after the break, according to CNN Tuesday.

While it is not clear whether those who work under the justices were interviewed individually, the sources told the outlet some of the clerks are particularly alarmed by the course of action and have considered whether to hire outside counsel.

“The affidavit may be a greater concern for the leaker,” George Washington University Law professor Jonathan Turley tweeted on Tuesday.

“After all, the leaker may have avoided using the cellphone or creating digital tracks. The affidavit is a sworn statement to federal investigators. If false, it could constitute a federal crime,” Turley added.

The court’s marshal, Gail Curley, is leading the probe. Curley has the authority to make arrests over violations of state or federal law. However, any potential decision on prosecution related to the leak would likely come from the Department of Justice.

What course of action do the remaining justice’s have if it was?
Can they convene in a special session to have her removed?
Leave it to a Socialist to be the first at screwing up the most highest and respected courts public confidence. If it was something like that then there’s no boundaries that they will not cross to take down America.

I don’t know if Sotomayor is the actual leaker, but the leak most likely came from her office. If so, and especially if she knew about it, she should be impeached and jailed, along with the actual leaker…for a very long time!

Talk, talk , talk. No action. We re going to……………we re going to…………….. truth is they’re not going to do a dam thing, cause it’s a LIBERAL that committed the act. Had it been a conservative the perpetrator would be found. Publicly humiliated and locked up.

I think it’s likely Kegan or one of her clerks. Kegan has a history of manipulating data to favor the continuation of abortion, in particilur late-term partial-birth abortion.

Just a waste of money. There can’t be that many people who had impunity to see the draft. Even if they find the person, they will get fired and not be able to work in DC for 2 weeks. Or they will be promoted to a high office in the DNC. My GOD, if a lawyer gets off with lying to the FBI(Federal Biden inc). Who are we going to turn to when November comes? Surely not McConnellor Romney, Chenny?

Polygraph if necessary but this is a big deal and needs uncovered. Perpetrator needs prosecuted if possible, even if it is a justice.
