Senator Ted Cruz Pinpoints Possible Leak Source

The big news of the week was obviously the Supreme Court brief leak.

The leak has literally turned the political world on its head and resulted in threats against our justices and protests around the country.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) believes he may know exactly where the leak originated.


Cruz has narrowed the search down to 12 possible people.

He stated, “It is likely to be someone who is a hard partisan and who was willing to burn the place down because he or she was so upset about what happened.

“If I were to guess the most likely justice for whom the law clerk is clerking is Sonia Sotomayor … because she is the most partisan of the justices and so she’s the most likely the higher wild-eyed partisan as clerks.

“I have no evidence of that, I’m just making an inference.”

Cruz went on to explain how this process works, stating that clerks can read opinions, but they are supposed to place documents into a burn bag afterward.

They are, under no circumstances, permitted to remove the documents from the building.

Cruz also believes the leak could be exposed by examining connections to the reporter that broke the story.

Cruz stated, “One question we don’t know, was this individual… how smart a crook were they?

“We know the reporters who published the story. One of the natural inquiries is going to be, particularly of the 12 likely suspects, what contacts did they have with those reporters?

“Did they know the reporters, did they go to school with the reporters, did they have emails with the reporters, do they have phone calls with the reporters, do they have texts with the reporters?”

Chief Justice Roberts has since ordered an investigation into the leak, which Cruz also mentioned.

He stated, “If they lie in the course of the investigation, I think they should be prosecuted and they should serve the maximum prison time possible.

“If they don’t lie it’s a little more complicated whether they’ve in fact violated a criminal prohibition or not. … I think, regardless, the penalty should be as significant as possible, because the damage to the Court will be far-lasting.

“It is going to make it incredibly difficult for the justices to trust the process of deciding cases in a collaborative manner, sharing drafts, going back and forth.”

The one question that will have to be answered now is if the leak was a rogue action or encouraged by the justice for whom this individual works.

If that is the case, the justice should be immediately impeached.
