GOP Leaders Call for Immediate Investigation of Unprecedented Leak of SCOTUS Draft Opinion

Republican leaders in the House and Senate called for an immediate investigation into the alleged leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion signaling its decision to overturn the infamous Roe v. Wade ruling, which legalized abortion nationwide.

In a statement issued Tuesday, House Republicans demanded an investigation, calling the leak a “clearly coordinated campaign to intimidate and obstruct” Supreme Court Justices:

“Today, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), and House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) released the following joint statement reacting to the unprecedented leak of the Supreme Court opinion on the Dobbs case before the Supreme Court:
“Yesterday’s unprecedented leak is an attempt to severely damage the Supreme Court. This clearly coordinated campaign to intimidate and obstruct the Justices of the United States Supreme Court, and its independence in our political system, from upholding the Constitution must be immediately investigated by the court.”

The House Republicans went on to reaffirm their belief in the sanctity of all human life and pray that the Justices will stand strong in their decision to protect it:

“House Republicans are committed to upholding the sanctity of life, and we will continue to fight to be a voice for the truly voiceless. There is nothing more special, extraordinary, and worth fighting for than the miracle of life.

“We pray for the resolve of our Justices and for a decision that protects our most basic and precious right, the right to life.”

Likewise, Republicans called for an investigation and condemned the leak, calling a “toxic spectacle” and part of an ongoing effort to bully federal judges and replace the rule of law with mob rule”:

“U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) issued the following statement Tuesday regarding the lawless attack on the independence of the Supreme Court:

“Last night’s stunning breach was an attack on the independence of the Supreme Court. By every indication, this was yet another escalation in the radical left’s ongoing campaign to bully and intimidate federal judges and substitute mob rule for the rule of law.

“The disgraceful statements by President Biden, Speaker Pelosi, and Leader Schumer refuse to defend judicial independence and the rule of law and instead play into this toxic spectacle. Real leaders should defend the Court’s independence unconditionally.

“This lawless action should be investigated and punished as fully as possible. The Chief Justice must get to the bottom of it and the Department of Justice must pursue criminal charges if applicable.

“All nine Justices should tune out the bad-faith noise and feel totally free to do their jobs, following the facts and the law where they lead.”
