So far, we still don’t know who’s behind the leak of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion, the one that could signal a ruling that would effectively overturn Roe v. Wade and give power over abortion legislation to the states.
But then, we’re not as brilliant and insightful as The Bulwark’s Bill Kristol, who has been reading between the lines and thinks he’s figured out exactly what’s going on here:
It's become pretty clear the leaks about internal Court deliberations (if not the draft opinion itself) are from the Thomas-Alito camp, and are designed to weaken the Chief Justice and intimidate any of the newer justices from joining him for fear of seeming weak or unprincipled. https://t.co/r5KRJOwUmt
