CNN: Supreme Court Clerks Asked for Phone Records in Leak Probe
 Martin Walsh May 31, 2022

U.S. Supreme Court officials are ramping up their search for the source of the leaked draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade.

The nation’s highest court has taken a slew of actions since the leak, including requiring law clerks to provide cell phone records and sign affidavits, according to CNN.

A draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito was leaked to Politico earlier this month and it set off a firestorm on social media.

“Some clerks are apparently so alarmed over the moves, particularly the sudden requests for private cell data, that they have begun exploring whether to hire outside counsel. The court’s moves are unprecedented and the most striking development to date in the investigation into who might have provided Politico with the draft opinion it published on May 2,” CNN reported.

“The probe has intensified the already high tensions at the Supreme Court, where the conservative majority is poised to roll back a half-century of abortion rights and privacy protections. Chief Justice John Roberts met with law clerks as a group after the breach, CNN has learned, but it is not known whether any systematic individual interviews have occurred,” the report added.

CNN anchor John Berman spoke about the breaking report on Tuesday morning.

“And this morning, we have a CNN exclusive. We have learned the Supreme Court is taking new unprecedented steps, the search for the person who leaked the draft Supreme Court abortion opinion that seeks to overturn Roe v. Wade. According to three sources, Supreme Court officials are telling law clerks, Supreme Court clerks, to provide cellphone records while also requiring them to sign affidavits. Nothing like this has happened before. We are told that some clerks are so alarmed, they are exploring seeking counsel,” Berman said.

Supreme Court officials are escalating their search for the source of the leaked draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade, taking steps to require law clerks to provide cell phone records and sign affidavits, three sources with knowledge of the efforts have told CNN.

Nonsense. Just another typical 10 year "investigation" which always comes up with nothing. Even if they discover the leaker, unless the person is a Republican (extremely unlikely), it will be buried, covered up, and never released. Democrats can do no wrong in Washington D.C., up to and including actual murder.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

It's 'unprecedented' because no one has ever chose to compromise the Court like this in it's history.

Of course CNN has to shade it to make it like the Court are being jackboots for following standard investigative procedures.

Nina Totenberg reports from a source close to the Justices, a "he," (perhaps Justice Breyer?), that "the clerks are terrified that their whole professional lives could be blown up" by the leak investigation.

If they participated in the leak, then they should lose the right to practice permanently.
