PJ Media: Former SCOTUS Law Clerk: Supreme Court ‘Suicide’ Leaker’s Crime Will Backfire

The Supreme Court leak case is now being investigated by the Marshal of the Supreme Court Police — yes, there is such a thing — but a former SCOTUS law clerk believes the unprecedented leak of the draft opinion will backfire on the Left in a big way.

Mike Davis, a former clerk to Justice Neil Gorsuch and a former Senate Judiciary Committee attorney, says the move, which is obstruction of justice, will not end the way the probable Leftist leaker thinks it will.

The usual abortion-loving renta-mobs are pouring into Washington, D.C., and U.S. Senators are threatening the justices over the draft ruling, hoping to pressure the Supreme Court majority into changing their minds and/or hoping the issue helps them in the midterm elections.

Davis, who now works with the Article III Project told me on KTTH Radio that the leak was “shocking, shameful, and likely illegal. I think this is unprecedented. It’s very clear that someone is leaking this opinion to try to influence justices’ votes on this Dobbs case to overturn Roe and Casey. And in that case, we’re looking at potential obstruction of justice charges against whoever did this.”

But, he says, the damage is already done. The upside, if there is one, is that “what this person did by leaking the opinion was they just used all their ammunition already. They blew up — it’s like a suicide bomber — they blow up in front of the Supreme Court — and you know at that point what is there to preserve?”
