The leak of the Supreme Court’s Roe vs. Wade decision appears to have been done by a right winger wanting to ensure that abortion rights got overturned. A new report from Rolling Stone says that Chief Justice John Roberts was lobbying Brett Kavanaugh to save Roe but that the leak put a stop to his efforts. The most plausible theory at the moment, therefore, is that a staffer caught wind of Roberts’ efforts and leaked the draft opinion to pressure Justice Kavanaugh to stay the course. When the draft opinion surfaced back in May, conservatives argued the leaker was obviously liberal and wanted them prosecuted for crimes they couldn’t even articulate. Now that some time has passed and it’s evident it was probably a right winger who did this, the right doesn’t talk about the leak anymore and simply rejoices over their win on the abortion issue.
