Lindsey Graham urges Roe to sue Wade Leaking ‘sadest’ date to Supreme Court
Senator Lindsey Graham (RS.C.) on Tuesday declared that “the saddest chapter in the history of the United States Supreme Court” happened not when the judiciary ruled that people of African descent had no citizenship in the United States, or when it maintained segregation between states, or when it permitted Japanese-American citizens to intern during World War II.
Instead, the Trump ally said on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show, the Supreme Court hit a new low on Monday, when Politico Reports on the existence of a draft majority opinion suggest that the court is ready to rescind the abortion protections established by Roe v. Wade. Chief Justice John Roberts has since directed court police to investigate the origins of the leak, which he called a “betrayal” and a “grave breach” of those working on the court. judgment.
“This is despicable, dangerous, and stupid,” Graham said Monday. Discussing the leaker, unidentified person and political party, he added:
“If it is a conservative, you are a traitor to justice. If you’re a libertarian, you’re the dumbest person in Washington because it won’t change midterms. You won’t be afraid of any conservative judge giving up on repeal Roe v. Wade – and it will be abolished, it will revert to the state of – and you are adding a story to a storyline that you want to win and you don’t care how you win. “
In the 24 hours since the report was published, many on the right appear to have grounded the inadequacy of the leak itself, with many claiming it was designed to intimidate the conservative majority of the country. court. Some even called it a “revolt” against the judiciary, while others rushed to push the leaker to be charged with some sort of crime, although it’s unclear what law, if any, will apply.
Graham nodded in agreement when Hannity asked if the leak was meant to be intimidation.
“I think [the leaker’s] motivation was to frighten the court, change its mind about repeal Roe v. Wade,” said Graham. He did not specify what punishment he believes the leaker faces for creating “the saddest chapter in the history of the United States Supreme Court.”
