Extreme Court Justice Samuel Alito Claims Leak of Dobb’s Opinion Made Some Justices “Targets for Assassination”

In an interview with the Heritage Foundation, Extreme Court Justice Samuel Alito claimed that whomever leaked the court’s opinion on Dobb’s, which reversed “Roe v. Wade, put the lives of the justices who voted to unwind the constitutional right to an abortion at risk.

“The leak also made those of us who were thought to be in the majority in support of overruling Roe and Casey targets for assassination because it gave people a rational reason to think they could prevent that from happening by killing one of us,”

Alito also said the leak of the draft opinion “changed the atmosphere” at the Supreme Court for the rest of its term, which ended this summer.

“It was a grave betrayal of trust by somebody and it was a shock because nothing like this had happened in the past.”

Although Chief Justice Roberts “directed the marshal of the court to investigate the leak, it’s unclear whether the identity of the person who provided the draft opinion to Politico is known.”

Alito also claimed to the fascists at the Heritage Foundation Q&A, that the Court’s recent decisions have become become partisan and threaten the Court’s legitimacy. He also claimed the Justices all get along “on a personal level, though he acknowledged that often is not reflected in their written opinions.”

“We sometimes disagree pretty passionately about the law, and we have not in recent years been all that restrained about the terms in which we express our disagreement. I’m as guilty as others probably on this score,” he said. “But none of that is personal, and that is something that I think I wish the public understood.”
