The lunacy of the television Left is actually astounding.
On Wednesday, one of the stupidest people on TV claimed it was likely a conservative Supreme Court clerk that leaked the draft decision which would overturn Roe v. Wade.
Joe Scarborough of MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ played a clip from Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in which Cruz said it was “ludicrous” to suggest a conservative leaked the draft opinion.
“I do agree with Ted, Sen. Cruz, that it was leaked by someone unhappy in the direction the court was going, but the question is which person was moving and what direction were they moving?” Scarborough said. “The right-wing noise machine always turns into overdrive, always.”
Scarborough referenced a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed that alleged it was a liberal clerk who leaked the draft purposely ahead of the midterms.
“What a plodding, nonsensical argument on so many levels,” Scarborough said. He then alleged Republicans are hypocrites for claiming it was a liberal clerk who doesn’t respect the court but yet support Justice Clarence Thomas, who Scarborough claimed is “involved in cases that directly impact his wife.”
This may be why the Chief Justice’s statement started with the declaration that the leaked document “does not represent a decision by the Court or the final position of any member on the issues in the case”.

“It’s more likely that somebody on the hard right was really pissed off that a Justice moved away from Alito’s really harsh right-wing diatribe on abortion. And instead, moved more towards Roberts’ way,” Scarborough continued. “It’s a classic, ‘hey, we’ve got the receipts, buddy. We’ve got — don’t even think about moving away from Alito and taking a more nuanced path. Because we have the receipts.’”
Scarborough then said perhaps that’s why Chief Justice John Roberts’ condemnation letter said the draft opinion does not represent the final position of the court.
Fellow MSNBC host Chris Hayes made a similar claim Tuesday, alleging it may have been a conservative clerk who leaked the draft despite admitting he had no evidence to back up the claim.
Politico released a draft opinion Monday night showing the high court appears poised to overturn Roe v. Wade.
“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote.
If these people truly believe the Supreme Court is making the wrong decision in reversing Roe v. Wade, what difference would the political affiliation of the person who leaked the memo make to them? In fact, wouldn’t Scarborough want the leaker to be a liberal? If the decision is truly as radical as he says, this supposed liberal leaker would be a hero if he/she succeeded in changing the course of the final decision.
But, no. It’s all about destroying American institutions one by one.
