Cue Inspector Renault

I'm shocked! Shocked, I tell you! To find that gambling is going on this establishment

Gee, after an incredibly thorough investigation, investigators at the Supreme Court are unable to figure out how the Dobbs decision, which reversed Roe v. Wade.

Of they left no stone unturned, except, of course, for actually questioning the justices.

They did not do that, because ……… They were afraid of catching the perpetrator? **cough** Samuel Alito **cough** 

Once it became likely that Alito was the leaker, the investigation was soft pedaled:

Today the embattled institution known as the Supreme Court released a report on its investigation into the leaked draft of the opinion overturning Roe v. Wade. The report “concludes” that the court is “unable to determine at this time, using a preponderance of the evidence standard, the identity of the person(s) who disclosed the draft majority opinion.”

We used air quotes because this report is far from conclusive, as it appears the investigators did not question the nine justices themselves. Those justices include Sam Alito, who allegedly leaked a birth control opinion in 2014, and Clarence Thomas, whose wife Ginni is a conservative activist who tried to overturn the 2020 election of Joe Biden.

Legal journalist Chris Geidner highlighted that on page 3, the report says: “The investigation focused on Court personnel—temporary (law clerks) and permanent employees—who had or may have had access to the draft opinion during the period from the initial circulation until the publication by Politico.” Law clerks and other employees were even asked to hand over their cell phones, as described on page 13.


But on page 11, the investigators acknowledge that it wasn’t only employees who had access to sensitive documents, emphasis ours: “The investigators determined that in addition to the Justices, 82 employees had access to electronic or hard copies of the draft opinion.”

Everyone knows who did this, and it was not Colonel Mustard with a candlestick.
