According to a report from The Washington Post, SCOTUS Justices in the majority are still in favor of overturning Roe v. Wade, despite the opinion originally being drafted in February. “[T]hree conservatives close to the court” told WaPo that “the majority of five justices to strike Roe remains intact” —and that was just a couple of weeks ago.
“Chief Justice John Roberts is not siding with the majority, telling his colleagues in December that he planned to write an opinion upholding both Mississippi’s restrictions on abortion, in question in Dobbs, as well as Roe to the extent possible,” The Daily Wire reports.
Prominent conservative voices are calling for the party responsible for the leak to be brought to justice; the leak has put conservative SCOTUS Justices and their families in danger. Former Attorney William Barr says Chief Justice John Roberts may have to appoint a special counsel to get to the bottom of it.
“I think the chief would have had the option, and perhaps he still will, to appoint a special counsel. Not in the classical criminal sense, but the court can appoint a counsel and he could bring in a former U.S. attorney or someone with a criminal law background. And I’m sure he would get the support he needed from the FBI or any other law enforcement agency,” Barr said.
