Eight months after an upcoming decision was leaked from the Supreme Court, we still have nothing.
The investigation that was conducted by the Supreme Court to find the leak came up completely empty.
Now, the House Judiciary Committee has stated that it will pick up the investigation to find the leaker.
May 2, 2022 is a day that changed the political narrative in this country.
Politico published a draft of the decision for the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, and abortion was put front and center.
After the leak occurred, Chief Justice Roberts called it an "egregious breach of trust."
Roberts than called in the Marshal of the Court to investigate the leak.
According to reports, nearly 100 employees were the subject of more than 120 interviews that were conducted. Every employee that was interviewed denied releasing the opinion.
The final report stated, "The investigation has determined that is unlikely that the Court's information technology (IT) systems were improperly accessed by a person outside the Court.
"After examining the Court's computer devices, networks, printers and available call and text logs, investigators have found no forensic evidence who disclosed the draft opinion."
It continued, "The pandemic and resulting expansion of the ability to work from home, as well as gaps in the Court's security policies, created an environment where it was too easy to remove sensitive information from the building and the Court's IT networks, increasing the risk of both deliberate and accidental disclosures of Court-sensitive information."
After the leak occurred, Chief Justice Roberts "directed a comprehensive review of the Court's information and document security protocols to mitigate the risk of future incidents."
In the meantime, the new chair of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) has announced that the House will now conduct its own investigation into the leak.
