Cruz is fuming!

On Wednesday Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas accused a “woke little left-wing twit” of being responsible for the leak of the Supreme Court’s draft. The decision in question relates to abortion, and there are currently 12 law clerks who are the main suspects in this case. These are all working for Democrat-appointed justices.

“It is difficult to overstate how destructive it is to the Supreme Court, to the independence of the judiciary, to the integrity of the court, to have a draft opinion leaked during the process of deciding the case,” Cruz said.

“In over 200 years of our nation’s history, that has never happened and there was one woke little left-wing twit who decided to hell with his or her obligations to the justice they work for, to hell the obligations to the court, to hell with the obligations to the rule of law, that they would, instead, try to sneak it out to put political pressure on the justices and intimidate them into changing their vote.”

Cruz’s remarks are a response to the draft, which if it does pass would overrule the landmark case Roe v. Wade. Still, Cruz remains determined to find out who leaked the document.

“If you look at the court, it’s a very limited universe of people who it could be,” he said. “The only people that have access to the opinions are the nine justices and their law clerks. Each justice has four clerks so that’s 36 law clerks. And there are a handful of clerical assistants and secretaries who might have it.”

“If there is a law clerk and very likely a law clerk for one of the three liberal justices, that means there are 12 likely suspects,” he added.

“The fact that we have someone willing to be unethical and break the law does not mean that we have got a master criminal at the court. I think they are going to have left a paper trail. There will be emails or texts with the reporters.”

“We will find this person,” he further noted. “And when they are found, they are going to be fired on the spot. They will be disbarred if they’re members of the bar, or they will never be admitted to the bar to be a lawyer, and to the extent that they have broken criminal laws, they need to be prosecuted and sent to jail.”
