Go figure MSNBC’s Chris Hayes is right out in front on this totally ridiculous story from the New York Times using a second-hand rumor of a rumor from a complete joke of a “source” that smears a Supreme Court Justice as doing what everyone everywhere knows was done by a liberal activist piece of crap clerk too cowardly to own up.
I’m going to give you the briefest, most accurate summary of the long New York Times smoke and mirrors article: Some guy who now hates Justice Alito wanted to get his name back in the news and is claiming the Justice told him at dinner one time in advance about a previous decision some years ago, and therefore probably he took the decision he was writing on Dobbs and gave it to the press for motives unknown but truuuust him it’s a super solid rumor.
Liberal Twitter, of course, went apecrap over it. I don’t have the stomach to put too many of these in here.
This is really really shocking stuff. Also seems like someone is definitely outright lying and one of the people who may be just outright lying is Alito.https://t.co/eOtph5xbQJ

Alito is now denying to the Times that he (or his wife) is the Supreme Court leaker.
So what would Roberts do if his investigation proves Alito is the leaker?
Answer: Nothing. https://t.co/3BX7UauY9n

Alito leaked Dobbs. Alito leaked Hobby Lobby. Worse, there’s an active conservative influence program to sway SCOTUS, one that John Roberts is turning a blind eye to.
The Court is corrupt and bankrupt and pretending it isn’t deepens the rot of democracy. https://t.co/qh9PO04hAW

Of course it’s Alito, Thomas, and Scalia who are corrupt.
Of course the court is irreparably broken.
Of course it’s the right that has been willing to exploit these cracks.
The only question is, what is the left going to do about it? https://t.co/UsrIghDo7Q

This Democrat representative who serves in Congress just outright buys it and spreads it.

These people are disgusting. The fantastical story with no basis in fact nor any evidence denied by all parties but one is on its face a smear and a maybe defamation.
To then take that, and the implication that New York Times embeds without the guts to spell it out, and run with it as proof of guilt?
That’s un-American. Which these people never stop proving they are.
