(FiveNation.com)- Although the U.S. Supreme Court claimed that its investigation could not determine who leaked the draft opinion of the Dobbs decision last summer, far-left media has raised questions about whether the justices sitting on the bench were adequately vetted.
In May, a far-left media outlet reported that the Supreme Court was prepared to reverse the landmark decision in Roe v. Wade in the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. This report was supported by a draft opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito that the outlet published.
The leak and the decision to restrict abortion rights nationwide sent shockwaves across the nation, sparking protests all over the country, renewing threats against the justices, and upsetting the midterm elections.
The Supreme Court concluded in an unsigned statement issued on Thursday that it could not identify the person who leaked the information or explain how the draft came into the possession of leftist media.
Reports show Twitter users questioned whether some of the more Conservative justices were looked into in the investigation, even though the court was unable to identify the source of the leak that shook Washington.
It is unclear why far-left activists supposed the leak came from Conservative-leaning Justices, not a Liberal Justice such as the pro-abortion Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
According to a Friday update from SCOTUS, Marshal Gail Curley put an end to those suppositions. She explained that during the course of the investigation, she spoke with each of the Justice, several on multiple occasions. In this iterative process, the Justices actively participated by asking questions and responding to hers.
According to a report, in a following statement, Curley stated that she investigated all credible leads, none of which implicated the justices or their spouses. In light of this, Curley did not think asking the Justices to sign sworn affidavits was necessary.
The most recent statement made public by the Supreme Court also mentioned that the court evaluated its investigation with counsel Michael Chertoff, a former Secretary of Homeland Security.
According to the statement, Chertoff claimed that after a thorough review, he was unable to locate any additional investigative steps that the investigation hadn’t already taken.
