Katie Pavlich, the editor of Townhall.com and a Fox News contributor, shared an eyebrow-raising take on who may have leaked the draft Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade earlier this month.
For one, she believes Democrats want to “ignore the leak” from the U.S. Supreme Court, arguing that it follows a pattern of Democrats trying to undermine the court during a Tuesday interview on the network, adding that there may not actually be much motivation to find out who committed the unprecedented leak.
“There’s been a lot of speculation about whether this was a liberal clerk, who was clerking for a more left-leaning justice. There have also been some accusations from Democrats that this was a conservative on the court leaking this because they want Roe versus Wade overturned,” Pavlich said.
“We don’t know who it is. We have heard calls from the likes of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell saying that the leaker should be prosecuted if they have broken any laws. The Department of Justice has not expressed much interest in looking at who the leaker is, and certainly, they haven’t expressed much interest in going after people descending on the homes of conservative justices,” she noted further.
“But if you look at the way that the evidence has piled up, Democrats have used this, including the White House. They’ve tried to ignore the leak, to push it aside, as Jen Psaki said when it first came out, to focus on the issue of Roe versus Wade,” she continued.
“And it follows a pattern of Democrats trying to undermine the court, whether it’s with court-packing or going after Supreme Court nominees that happen to be appointed by a Republican, trying to get their nomination thrown out,” Pavlich said.
“And, of course, you’ve had Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer standing on the steps of the court just last year during a hearing on a case about abortion threatening Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch on that very issue. So it follows the left-leaning pattern, but we do not know who the leaker is,” she concluded.
Last week, Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo said she believed the identity of the Supreme Court leaker will be revealed in “short order.”
“We are going to know who leaked that draft opinion in short order,” Bartiromo said.
