(LifeSiteNews) – After the SCOTUS leak regarding the likely overturning of Roe v. Wade, Daily Wire commentator Matt Walsh tweeted: “The SCOTUS leak is an actual insurrection. An attempt to completely upend and delegitimize the rule of law, incite violence and chaos, and potentially plunge the nation into civil war. January 6th was a stroll in the park compared to this. It’s not even close.”

Within hours of the initial article from Politico, large numbers of pro-abortion supporters began to gather outside the U.S. Supreme Court to advocate for the continual destruction of innocent life in the womb.

In addition to the striking revelation that SCOTUS is set to strike down Roe v. Wade and Casey v. Planned Parenthood, the fact of a leaked document from the Court has U.S. Senators in agreement with Matt Walsh that something nefarious might be afoot.
Republican Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri, a former law clerk to Roberts on the court, tweeted that the leak was an “assault” by the left that was “clearly meant to intimidate” the court.
The left continues its assault on the Supreme Court with an unprecedented breach of confidentiality, clearly meant to intimidate. The Justices mustn’t give in to this attempt to corrupt the process. Stay strong https://t.co/1Ibbe0t2I3

Republican Senator Rick Scott of Florida agreed with Hawley tweeting that “this breach shows that radical Democrats are working even harder to intimidate & undermine the Court.”
The Supreme Court’s confidential deliberation process is sacred & protects it from political interference. This breach shows that radical Democrats are working even harder to intimidate & undermine the Court. It was always their plan. The justices cannot be swayed by this attack. https://t.co/S5eMGO0dxd

“It was always their plan. The justices cannot be swayed by this attack,” Scott added.
In addition, Florida Senator Marco Rubio opined along with Hawley and Scott that the “far left… leaked a Supreme Court opinion in an attempt to intimidate the justices on abortion.”
The next time you hear the far left preaching about how they are fighting to preserve our Republic’s institutions & norms remember how they leaked a Supreme Court opinion in an attempt to intimidate the justices on abortion https://t.co/9W6jKCZQQt

Joining the chorus of condemnation about the SCOTUS leak, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton wrote: “The Supreme Court & the DOJ must get to the bottom of this leak immediately using every investigative tool necessary.”
The Supreme Court & the DOJ must get to the bottom of this leak immediately using every investigative tool necessary.
In the meantime, Roe was egregiously wrong from the beginning & I pray the Court follows the Constitution & allows the states to once again protect unborn life.

Chief Justice John Roberts released a statement on May 3 stating that the leak was “authentic” but “does not represent a decision by the Court of the final position of any member.” However, he also stated that that “this betrayal of the confidences of the Court… will not succeed” to undermined “the integrity of our operations.”
