Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito says he is reasonably sure he knows who leaked the memo that was the basis for the repeal of Roe vs. Wade that sent abortion back to the state legislatures. It was a deliberate attempt to stop the decision, if necessary with violence, says Alito.
In June 2022, Nicholas Roske (25) travelled from California to Washington alone to kill Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his family. He made his way to the house. In his rucksack he had a hammer, a gun and strips of paper, but his sister persuaded him to turn himself in before he became a murderer.
Liberal media do not write about the harassment of judges, which is prohibited by law, and that it almost cost a Supreme Court judge his life.
Alito has given an interview to the Wall Street Journal. He says he’s pretty sure who it was that leaked the memo to Politico. 97 of the staff at the Supreme Court were interviewed and had to give a sworn statement.
The purpose of the leak was clearly to stop the decision. Activists who believe they are above the democratic process have entered the system and can do great damage. In this case, almost murder.
The Wall Street Journal reported:
Justice Alito says the marshal “did a good job with the resources that were available to her” and agrees that the evidence was insufficient for a public accusation. “I personally have a pretty good idea who is responsible, but that’s different from the level of proof that is needed to name somebody,” he says. He’s certain about the motive: “It was a part of an effort to prevent the Dobbs draft . . . from becoming the decision of the court. And that’s how it was used for those six weeks by people on the outside—as part of the campaign to try to intimidate the court.”
That campaign included unlawful assemblies outside justices’ homes, and that wasn’t the worst of it. “Those of us who were thought to be in the majority, thought to have approved my draft opinion, were really targets of assassination,” Justice Alito says. “It was rational for people to believe that they might be able to stop the decision in Dobbs by killing one of us.” On June 8, an armed man was arrested outside the home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh; the suspect was later charged with attempted assassination and has pleaded not guilty.
