(FreedomBeacon.com)- The Supreme Court remains in the dark over which worker leaked the ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, according to CNBC. An investigation was started at the behest of Justice John Roberts to identify the culprit, but the probe has inconclusively ended, leaving the High Court looking over its shoulder.
The Supreme Court took the leak in stride but called it “one of the worst betrayals of trust in its history” and “a grave assault on the judicial process.” The investigation included interviews with nearly 100 government employees, 82 of whom had access to the draft opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito. But none of the justices were reportedly tapped for an interview.
Politico was the first to obtain a copy of the draft opinion in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization (2022) case, according to American Pigeon. It was revealed that Alito had written that the landmark decision in Roe v. Wade was “egregiously wrong from the start,” opposing the decision’s claim that abortion was a constitutional right.
CNBC reports that the draft was initially circulated to the court’s justices and clerks on February 10. When the leak occurred, Roberts tapped Gail Curley, the marshal of the Supreme Court to lead the investigation.
“In following up on all available leads…the Marshal’s team performed additional forensic analysis and conducted multiple follow-up interviews of certain employees,” the Supreme Court stated, adding that a person has not been able to be identified “by a preponderance of the evidence.”
Curley’s 20-page report allegedly shows that the leak must have come from inside the court, as it appears “highly unlikely” that the court’s systems were accessed by someone else.
The draft leak caused political havoc as pro-abortionists called the opinion an assault on women’s rights. Weeks later, the court handed down the decision that confirmed the validity of the draft.
