Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) called the Supreme Court leak of a draft opinion that would overturn Roe V. Wade “an outrage” that was extremely “corrosive and destructive” to the court.
“It is truly stunning. In over two centuries of our nation’s history, this has never happened,” Cruz said of the leak. “And this is as corrosive and destructive to the Supreme Court as we’ve ever seen. What it means is that there were some angry left-wing law clerk who breached the trust of his or her justice, who breached the trust to the Supreme Court, who breached the trust of the American people and took a first draft of an opinion and decided to leak into everyone.”
He continued, “This is the consequence of the Democrats’ rabidly partisan effort to undermine the court, to attack the court. This is part and parcel of Chuck Schumer standing on the steps of the court and threatening the justices, saying you will reap the whirlwind. This is part and parcel of the effort by Democrats to pack the Supreme Court.
“Democrats have a lot to answer for the destruction that this reeks in the court because it will carry on potentially forever limiting the ability of the justices to do their solemn constitutional responsibility. It really is an outrage,” he went on.
Cruz said he thinks the leaker should serve “real jail time” for their actions.
