Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) spoke out on Fox News against the leaking of the Supreme Court’s draft ruling that would overturn Roe v. Wade. In a separate news conference with reporters, Cruz said he was “utterly horrified” that the draft was leaked and insinuated that Democrats were in some way responsible.
Cruz asserted on Fox News that the draft opinion was leaked by “some left-wing law clerk” who wanted to pressure the Supreme Court’s conservative majority. The “left-wing law clerk” wanted to invoke politics and add heat “to try to get them to change their vote,” he said. Cruz provided no hard evidence to support this claim.
Cruz said that if the “left-wing law clerk” succeeds, “it will be the most grotesque politicization of the Supreme Court in the history of our nation.”
Cruz hopes there is an FBI investigation into the matter and that the “left-wing law clerk” is fired, prosecuted and “serves real jail time for violating the confidences of the Supreme Court.”
