(FiveNation.com)- After some law clerk working at the Supreme Court leaked a draft opinion written by Justice Antonin Scalia, many began to demand that the Federal Bureau of Investigation get called in to investigate the leak.
But given how political the FBI has become, perhaps having the agency lead a probe into this leak isn’t the best idea. Unless, of course, the goal is to make sure nothing happens to the leaker.
Last week, former director of the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division Chris Swecker appeared on Fox News where he said the FBI has the jurisdiction to investigate this leak.

If there was one standard of justice in this country, then, sure, let the FBI investigate this.
But in America today, there is no equal justice under the law.
Biden’s Department of Justice might order the FBI to go after parents protesting at school board meetings, but it isn’t going to lift a finger to investigate this leaker.
In a statement last Tuesday, Chief Justice John Roberts said that he ordered the marshal of the Supreme Court to launch an investigation into the leak, calling it a “betrayal” designed to “undermine the integrity” of the Court.
The worst that will happen to this leaker is he or she will get fired. And there isn’t even any guarantee that will happen.
If anything, this leaker will be celebrated by the American corporate media and Democrat politicians. He or she will likely get a lucrative book deal and an even more lucrative contract to join MSNBC or CNN as a “legal analyst” or “Supreme Court expert.”
Roberts also confirmed in a separate statement that the leaked draft was authentic, but noted that draft opinions are circulated internally “as a routine and essential part of the Court’s confidential deliberative work.” He added that the draft document isn’t the decision by the Court or “the final position” of any Justice.
