Could THIS Be The SCOTUS Leaker?


Are we looking at a mere coincidence here, or something more?

Chief of Staff to Justice John Roberts, Jeffrey P. Minear, is set to retire on September 30th, 2022. His retirement coincides with the recent announcement that a report on the SCOTUS leaker is coming soon.

Some are speculating as to whether or not Minear’s retirement points to him being the SCOTUS leaker…

Perhaps this theory could also explain why we still don’t know who the leaker is 4 months after the leak—the person in question is the counselor to the Chief Justice.

I want to reiterate that this is just a theory, could it hold some truth? Sure, but at this point, we still don’t know. My theory continues to be that the court is simply protecting one of its own—a Justice of the United States.

Here’s what we currently know:


The Epoch Times provided more details:

Jeffrey P. Minear will retire on Sept. 30 after serving as Roberts’s chief of staff since 2006.

Minear previously worked for the U.S. solicitor general’s office, where he argued 56 cases before the Supreme Court.

As chief justice, Roberts is head of the federal judiciary as well as presiding officer of the Supreme Court.

Minear’s successor has yet to be named.


Washington Examiner reports:

“The chief justice appointed an internal committee to oversee the investigation,” Gorsuch said at the 10th Circuit Bench & Bar Conference at the Broadmoor resort in Colorado, according to the Wall Street Journal.

“That committee has been busy, and we’re looking forward to their report, I hope, soon,” Gorsuch added.
