The Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court (SCOTUS), John Roberts, is the subject of a recent and strange report that claims he secretly tried to persuade the other sitting justices to uphold the historic Roe V. Wade decision, which is seen by both the left and the right as a complete betrayal of the moderate position the leader of the SCOTUS purports to favor.
The latest study is prompting the left to make a variety of fresh claims about the nature of the Politico leak from May 2, which sparked a well-organized street mob of activists to stalk and assault Supreme Court justices.
Republican Roberts has long been the target of criticism from conservatives for his left-leaning tendencies. By siding with the extreme left during pivotal moments when he could have helped save the Republic, Roberts’ beliefs have enraged Americans. Long-standing rumors suggest that Roberts is not who he appears to be in public or in private.
According to early-week accounts in CNN and Business Insider, Roberts privately attempted to persuade the other justices to uphold Roe v. Wade, but his efforts were foiled by the historic document leak that was sent to Politico on May 2.
According to CNN, Roberts reportedly wanted the other justices to uphold Roe v. Wade and was working behind the scenes to sway their decisions.

According to reports from CNN, Yahoo News, and Business Insider, Roberts had already been trying to convince Kavanaugh and Barrett to change their initial votes on the issue to uphold Roe. This information was based on ‘based on inside sources, who the media knew was familiar with Roberts’ conversations.”
Regarding these insider sources, no identities were mentioned.
According to the rumor, Roberts’ attempts to preserve some of Roe were thwarted because the Politico article “lifting the veil on what was typically a private deliberation,” according to CNN.
According to a report by CNN on the subject, “The draft opinion only cemented the justices’ original votes and increased the urgency of the court to release its final decision without any changes,.”
According to media reports, the justices were aware that Politico had obtained the draft opinion at the end of April, one week before it was made public, and they anxiously awaited its release on May 2 in order to demonstrate that the court was under attack from radical leftists who were trying to sway events in order to change their decision.
According to reports, Roberts was angered by the media leak. He swiftly issued a statement in reaction, calling it a “betrayal of the confidences of the Court meant to undermine the integrity of our operations,” but asserting that it “will not succeed.”
People who knew Roberts well at the time claimed that, above all things, Roberts had genuine rage about the leak’s nature because he believed it had harmed the court, which confused many because he had never been much of a firebrand before.
“Roberts had reportedly been opposed to a complete reversal of Roe, seeking to maintain at least the core tenet that women have the constitutional right to abortion. Instead, the chief justice, a conservative who’s sat on the court since 2005, sought to eliminate Roe’s viability line, which allowed abortion until roughly 24 weeks of pregnancy. The case before the court concerned a Mississippi law that sought to ban abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, which Roberts was open to uphold, according to multiple news reports at the time,” according to Yahoo.

“Though Roberts’ so-called middle ground approach failed. On June 24, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization to overturn Roe, along with a subsequent 1992 abortion decision, Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
Alito, the author of the opinion, declared that Roe was “egregiously wrong from the start” and “the States may regulate abortion” now. In the wake of the ruling, a slew of Republican-led states has banned abortion, with more restrictions to come.
