Lindsey Graham Calls Roe v. Wade Leak the ‘Saddest’ Day for Supreme Court
Sen. Lindsey Graham (RS.C.) announced Tuesday that “the saddest chapter in the history of the United States Supreme Court” did not come when the judiciary ruled that people of African descent did not have citizenship in the United States. Ky, or when it maintains state segregationor when it allows Internship of Japanese American citizens 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 the existence of a draft majority opinion suggests that the court is ready to rescind the abortion protections established by Roe v. Wade. Chief Justice John Roberts has since been directed governor of the court to investigate the origins of the leak, which he called a “betrayal” and a “serious and singular breach” of trust among those working on the court.
“This is despicable, dangerous, and stupid,” Graham said Monday. Discussing the leaker, the unnamed person and the 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 call it a “revolt” against the judiciary, while others hastily push for the leaker will be charged with some sort of crime, although it’s not clear what laws, 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 scare 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.”
