SCOTUS Leaker Faces 10Yr Prison Sentence And $10K Fine


OPINION: This article contains commentary which may reflect the author's opinion


A Democrat leaked the draft ruling which revealed that Roe v. Wade will be overturned by the Supreme Court.

The leaker, who most likely worked with people higher up in the Democratic Party, wanted to cause unrest and violence in order to pressure the justices to change their minds.

It worked in the sense that there has been violence, but as far as we know, Roe is still on track to be overturned.

In May, the Justice Department said that the U.S. Marshals Service began providing “around-the-clock security” at the personal homes of all Supreme Court justices, not just the conservative ones who have been threatened.

In light of the protests following the leak of a draft opinion signaling the reversal of Roe v. Wade, which could allow states to determine their own laws regarding fetal viability, Attorney General Merrick Garland called on the USMS to guard and protect the homes of justices on the high court.

“At the Attorney General’s direction, the U.S. Marshals Service accelerated the provision of round-the-clock security at the homes of all Justices, among other actions,” a Justice Department press release stated at the time.

A terror group called ‘Jane’s Revenge’ has vowed a “night of rage” when Roe is overturned.

The leaker(s) caused this. They wanted this. They are complicit.

And now the Senate is making sure that person or persons and any future leakers will pay.

The Washington Examiner reported:

Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) unveiled new legislation Thursday that would hold future Supreme Court leakers accountable with a $10,000 fine and 10 years in prison for releasing information about pending decisions in response to last month’s unprecedented leaked draft opinion that signaled the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

In an exclusive interview, Cassidy told the Washington Examiner that if the legislation, titled the Stop Supreme Court Leakers Act of 2022, becomes law, it would not be able to imprison or fine anyone responsible for leaking the draft opinion of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, though it could be used to confiscate any possible profits received by the person or people who leaked the draft.

“There is a portion in there which seizes profit stemming from the crime. So the person who wants to do a book deal where they’re going to profit from what they’ve done, that would be affected,” Cassidy said, also noting that any media contributions or paid speaking engagements would fall into the same category.

“Whoever leaked this draft opinion and any future leakers must face the consequences of the damage they cause,” Cassidy added.

Cassidy cited the attempted assassination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh at his home in Chevy Chase, Maryland, as one reason for the Senate to act. The suspect, 26-year-old Nicholas Roske, admitted he was inspired by the leaked draft opinion that signaled the high court was poised to undo nearly 50 years of abortion access precedent established under Roe, according to a criminal affidavit.

“The attempted assassination of a sitting United States Supreme Court justice was a direct result of the dangerous and unprecedented leak. While the mainstream media may ignore this horrific story targeting a conservative justice, the American people want the leaker to be held accountable,” Cassidy said.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) backed the legislation, asserting that “you shouldn’t receive a badge of honor or financial reward” for leaking confidential high court documents and that “you should face serious penalties” instead. The bill is also supported by Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), who argued the leak was “done to intimidate justices and influence the outcome of cases.”

A blog post from Jane’s Revenge instructs people to get “physical” after Roe is overturned:

Within the month we anticipate a verdict will be issued that overturns Roe v Wade, setting in motion an evisceration of abortion access across the so-called United States.

This is an event that should inspire rage in millions of people who can get pregnant…and yet, the response thusfar has been tepid.

We have agonized over this apparent absence of indignation. Why is it that we are so afraid to unleash hell upon those who are destroying us? Fear of state repression is valid, but this goes deeper than that.

Your anger has been stolen from you.

To this we say: no more. We need to get angry.

We need the state to feel our full wrath.

We need to express this madness fully and with ferocity. We need to quit containing ourselves.

Whatever form your fury takes, the first step is feeling it.

The next step is carrying that anger out into the world and expressing it physically.

Consider this your call to action.

On the night the final ruling is issued——a specific date we cannot yet predict, but we know is arriving imminently——we are asking for courageous hearts to come out after dark.

Whoever you are and wherever you are, we are asking for you to do what you can to make your anger known.

We have selected a time of 8pm for actions nationwide to begin, but know that this is a general guideline. There may be other considerations involved in planning time and place. We do not claim to speak for every community or crew. We are simply calling out to you. And we hope you answer our cries.

The leaker set this in motion. There will be terror attacks because of the leak. So they must pay.
