(JustPatriots.com)- The inquiry into the leak of the Supreme Court’s draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade seems to have concluded, and no updated information on the investigation into the perpetrator’s identity has been made public.
Whoever leaked the judgment has yet to be found, and it looks pretty doubtful that the leaker will ever be identified and publicly shamed/praised since the list of suspects continues to encompass anybody with access to the decision.
Security at the Supreme Court has been described as “loose” to “nonexistent.”
Information previously unknown to the public has been revealed to CNN by multiple sources familiar with the court’s operations. It paints a distressing picture of years of casual attitudes toward security, which led to the leak and hampered the investigation into its perpetrator.
To add insult to injury, “burn bags” supposed to assure the safe burning of materials were left open and unattended in corridors, and workers of the Supreme Court utilized printers that didn’t make logs or could print critical papers off-site without tracking.
Even printers do not have secure access. This cannot be blamed on the sloppiness of the Supreme Court. The court’s IT department should have dealt with that issue since it is technical.
The Supreme Court also hears cases involving threats to national security. Given the Supreme Court’s complete lack of control over material pouring into it, the only unexpected thing about the Dobbs leak is that leaks involving surveillance activities or foreign operations haven’t come from there.
According to Alan Dershowitz, the conclusion of the investigation into one of the most egregious breaches of national secrecy in U.S. history is frustrating and inadequate. The leak purportedly inspired a possible Justice Kavanaugh assassin, yet, somehow, our government cannot find the source of the leak.
Doomed from the start, Dershowitz says that the Supreme Court’s probe should have never been given to the Court Marshal in charge of maintaining peace and safety in the Supreme Court building. The Marshal’s office lacks the resources necessary to complete complex investigations and has no training to do so.
With a laser-like focus on preventing other countries from obtaining national security documents, memos floating around the corridors of the Supreme Court should be equally secured.
