I have my theories on who the leaker is, but that is for another time…
We are getting reports that investigators have narrowed down the list of potential suspects in the ongoing SCOTUS leaker probe.
Previously, clerks of the court were compelled to hand over their cell phones and sign affidavits to further the investigation, but 3 months later the leaker still hasn’t been caught…
Are investigators looking in the wrong place? Could the SCOTUS leaker be someone other than a clerk? A SCOTUS Justice perhaps?
It is still too early to tell, but I find the protracted nature of this investigation extremely telling.
A quick glance at the online comments reveals that I am not the only one who suspects something strange going on with the leak and the investigation:
– The Biden Administration changed the definition of Recession.
-Liberals believe a man can get pregnant.
-87 days later, we still can’t find the #SCOTUS leaker of the Dobbs opinion on Roe vs Wade.

What happens if the SCOTUS leaker turns out to be a justice?

Fox News reports:
But multiple sources tell Fox News the investigation into the approximately 70 individuals in the court who may have had access to the draft opinion has been narrowed.
Sources say much of the initial focus was on the three dozen or so law clerks, who work directly with the justices on their caseload.
Remember: it was Alito’s opinion that leaked.
That fact paired with his politicized remarks below should be alarming to anyone.
The Supreme Court is in a legitimacy crisis. Chief Justice Roberts has a responsibility to share the progress & results of SCOTUS’ leak investigation. https://t.co/5AlOb1ihJw

There is absolutely no way that they do not know, by now, the identity of the SCOTUS leaker. Unless there was never any actual investigation.

Conservative Brief speculates:
The leak, which has never happened in modern history, triggered an investigation that, months later, appeared to have stalled, leading some critics to conclude that Chief Justice John Roberts, who ordered the court’s marshal to launch a probe, was no longer interested in learning the leaker’s identity.
