Liz Cheney calls for Supreme Court leaker to be prosecuted

Republican Liz Cheney (R-WY) condemned the pro-abortion mob that is attempting to intimidate the Supreme Court into reversing its opinion overturning Roe V. Wade. 

The Republican joined those calling for the leaker of the Court’s draft opinion to face prosecution “to the fullest extent of the law,” the Washington Examiner reported.

Cheney calls for prosecution

The unauthorized leak last Monday sparked an internal probe into what Chief Justice John Roberts called an “egregious” betrayal of the Court’s trust.

The Court’s opinion has whipped the left into a frenzy of violent rage, as the leaker appears to have intended. Pro-abortion extremists have published the addresses of the court’s conservative justices and, with the support of President Biden, have staged “protests” outside their homes.

Cheney criticized the mobs threatening the justices at their homes, as well as the leaker, who she said had damaged the high court’s integrity.

“There is no place in our constitutional republic for violence or efforts to intimidate. Citizens have the right to have their voices heard, but it is wrong for crowds to be protesting outside Supreme Court Justices’ homes,” Cheney told the Examiner.

“Whomever leaked the draft opinion has done damage to the institution of the Supreme Court and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” she said.

Biden unleashes terror

The U.S. Marshalls said Monday that they would help enhance security for the justices in response to increased threats that had already led to the Supreme Court building being fenced off.

More protesters gathered outside the home of Justice Samuel Alito, who authored the leaked opinion overturning Roe, on Monday night after a mob menaced the families of Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend. Federal law makes it a crime to picket with the intent to influence a court proceeding.

Biden, who is Catholic, has been reluctant to forcefully condemn the leaker or the pro-abortion terror the leaker — and Biden — have incited.

After signaling solidarity with the “passion” of the mob last week, Biden gently criticized efforts to make judges feel unsafe in a statement Monday — but then clarified Tuesday that he continues to support so-called “peaceful protests” outside judges’ homes.

Meanwhile, pro-abortion radicals set a pro-life group’s office on fire this weekend and activists dressed in Handmaid’s Tale costumes barged into a Los Angeles church during Sunday Mass shouting about their right to kill babies.
