As was predicted, the left is seeking retribution against conservative US Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito for his role in overturning Roe V. Wade in 2022.
In a blatant attempt to undermine the conservative justices by first undermining Alito, a man who claimed to be a former pastor and pro-life activist and who is now with the left-leaning group “Demand Justice” desperately sold a narrative to the liberal media.
The Democrat-led Senate has accepted the leftist media narratives that were set off and is now pressing for an investigation into Alito for “leaking” in 2014 while totally ignoring the leak of 2022.
When Politico revealed Alito’s 2022 draft of overturning Roe V. Wade, activists quickly started to protest in an obvious effort to have political influence on the process. This led to a major scandal.
In other words, that is precisely what the left is projecting and charging the right with doing in 2014.
The left is now concentrating on the following:
Rob Schenck, a traitorous “pro-life” activist, claimed recently in a piece attacking Alito’s reputation that he remembered “that another highly controversial Alito opinion had leaked before—and that it came directly from the Justice himself. (Never mind how I know that—but I do know it firsthand)” the author said, adding, “So, it occurred to me a leak is not as rare as people think.”
The shaky narrative by Schenck and his organization Demand Justice, which accuses Alito and his wife of impropriety and leaking SCOTUS decisions to activists back in 2014, was taken up by The New York Times. In a particular case that was on the court’s agenda at the time and involved Hobby Lobby, community activists were particularly focused on savagely criticizing Alito.
Schenck claims that the Wrights, who were interacting with the Alito couple, passed along his knowledge of the decision.
Schenck asserts that Gayle Wright, the spouse of wealthy real estate developer and the creator of a flourishing furniture company, Don Wright, informed him of the Hobby Lobby case’s verdict at the time. Don Wright founded that company.
According to Schenck, the Wrights belonged to the activist collective known as “Higher Order” that sought to petition and sway the Supreme Court.
The Wrights have also refuted Schenck’s claims.
Nevertheless, Politico covered the New York Times piece and cited Alito’s denial of Schenck’s claims that the Wrights lobbied him at social gatherings:
“The allegation that the Wrights were told the outcome of the decision in the Hobby Lobby case, or the authorship of the opinion of the Court, by me or my wife is completely false,” Alito said.
More on this story via The Republic Brief:
“My wife and I became acquainted with the Wrights some years ago because of their strong support for the Supreme Court Historical Society, and since then, we have had a casual and purely social relationship. I never detected any effort on the part of the Wrights to obtain confidential information or to influence anything that I did in either an official or private capacity, and I would have strongly objected if they had done so. I have no knowledge of any project that they allegedly undertook for ‘Faith and Action,’ ‘Faith and Liberty,’ or any similar group, and I would be shocked and offended if those allegations are true.”
