 NPR reporter says ‘leading theory’ on SCOTUS leak is conservative clerk
by Brad Dress - 05/08/22 6:39 PM ET

A clerk for a conservative justice is the “leading theory” amid intense speculation about who released a draft opinion authored by Justice Samuel Alito, showing the court is set to overturn Roe v. Wade, according to legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg of National Public Radio (NPR).

Totenberg said on ABC’s “This Week” that the prevailing theory is that a conservative clerk released the decision in an attempt to lock in the five justices who voted to support overturning Roe, as Chief Justice John Roberts reportedly attempts to pull his colleagues toward a more moderate position.

“That has never, ever occurred before,” Totenberg said of the leak. “That could only, in all likelihood, have come from a justice — that I think is less likely — or perhaps one of the clerks.”

“The only one that makes sense is it came from somebody who was afraid that this majority might not hold,” she added.

Not really. It's a stupid theory.

When it comes to American Democrats, it is hard to believe they didn't blame it on "RUSSIA!" or "TRUMP!" According to the Democrats, Russia and Trump are responsible for every bad thing that exists in the world today and that has ever existed in history.

I wouldn't believe Nina Totenberg if she was standing in front of me soaking wet and telling me it's raining outside!

Prevailing among a very small group of hard core leftists at NPR.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

It's not a conservative, and here's the tell:  They had to have known after the first day whodunnit.  If it really was a conservative Justice's Clerk, it would have been big news by Wednesday.  No news means they're covering for a leftist because it would blow the cover, if it became known for sure.

@GtHawk

I don't know what Pope you are writing about,but the one I am familiar with is the CMMFIC of the Catholic Church. That pretty much defines him as being a Catholic.
