The abortion leak, according to Clarence Thomas, has transformed the Supreme Court.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The unexpected leak of a draught opinion earlier this month, according to Justice Clarence Thomas, has transformed the Supreme Court. The opinion signals that the court is likely to overturn Roe v. Wade, which established the right to abortion over 50 years ago.

The leak was condemned as an inconceivable breach of trust by conservative Thomas, who joined the court in 1991 and has long sought for Roe v. Wade to be repealed.

“When you lose trust, especially in the organisation where I work, it fundamentally alters the institution.” You begin to cast a glance behind you. “It’s like an affair that you can explain but not reverse,” he stated while addressing at a convention in Dallas on Friday evening.

The draught does not represent any of the court’s members’ final positions, according to the court, and Chief Justice John Roberts has ordered an investigation into the leak.

Before the May 2 leak of the ruling to Politico, Thomas, a Bush nominee, said it was “beyond anyone’s belief” that even a single line of a draught decision would be disclosed in advance, let alone an entire manuscript that spans almost 100 pages. According to Politico, conservative justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett voted with the draught opinion’s author, Samuel Alito, to overturn Roe v. Wade and a 1992 case, Planned Parenthood v. Casey, which reinforced Roe’s determination of a constitutional right to abortion.

“If someone stated one word of one viewpoint would be leaked,” Thomas remarked, “the response would have been: “Oh, that’s impossible.” That would never happen.”

“Now that trust or belief is gone for good,” Thomas stated at the Old Parkland Conference, which aims to “explore alternative proven approaches to tackling the difficulties confronting Black Americans today.”

“I do believe what happened at the court is tremendously horrible,” Thomas said at one point.

I’m not sure how long we’ll be able to maintain these institutions at the rate we’re destroying them.”

Thomas also mentioned the liberal protests at conservative justices’ residences in Maryland and Virginia after the draught opinion was released. Conservatives, Thomas claimed, had never acted in this manner.

“When things don’t go our way, you don’t go to the homes of Supreme Court judges. We didn’t have any tantrums. I believe it is our responsibility to always act responsibly and not to payback tit for tat “he stated.

On Saturday, protests were planned at the Supreme Court and across the country.

Neither Thomas nor any of the other attendees at the Dallas meeting mentioned the Jan. 6 uprising or Thomas’ wife, Virginia’s efforts to have the 2020 presidential election results annulled.

Clarence Thomas was speaking in front of an audience during a talk with John Yoo, a Berkeley Legal professor who worked as a law clerk for Thomas for a year in the early 1990s.

Every year, each justice is assigned four legal clerks, and the current batch has been the subject of suspicion as a probable source of the draught opinion’s leak. They are one of a few groups granted access to draught opinions, along with the justices and some administrative personnel.

Thomas also took questions from the crowd, including one from a guy who inquired about the court’s liberal and conservative alliances, such as the well-known friendship between the late liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the late conservative Justice Antonin Scalia. The man inquired, “How can we nurture that same type of friendship within Congress and within the broader population?”

“Well, for now, all I’m concerned about is keeping it at the court,” Thomas said. He went on to praise former colleagues in glowing terms. He explained, “This is not the court of that era.”

Despite his remarks, Thomas appeared to be in good spirits, laughing out loud at times. Yoo, who is most known for penning the “torture memos” that the George W. Bush administration used to justify the use of “enhanced interrogation” tactics in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, claimed at one time that he had photographed notes Thomas took during the discussion.

“Are you going to let them out?” Thomas inquired, giggling.

“Well, I know where to go…,” Yoo replied.

Politico will now print whatever I send them.”
