Bill Barr: The Person Who Leaked SCOTUS Opinion Should Go To Jail
Listen To The Full Interview Below:
Bill Barr, Former U.S. Attorney General, Author Of “One Damn Thing After Another: Memoirs of an Attorney General” joined the Guy Benson Show to react to the bombshell leak from the Supreme Court that shows an authentic opinion from the court that would overturn Roe v. Wade.
Barr reacted to the leak from the Supreme Court by saying,
“Well, confidentiality is critical to the functioning of the judiciary. They need to be able to have, you know, discourse within the court in deciding the case and make sure that it’s kept confidential until an opinion comes out. And so this was an obstruction of the judicial process. It was an interference in the due administration of justice. So I think that it’s a crime that was done. It appears to have been done. And I think eventually it will be shown to have been done in order to derail the opinion and upset the deliberations of the court. And so I think ultimately it belongs in the criminal justice side of things. And the person who did this should go to jail. Now, there could be some preliminary review of this thing to see if they can figure out quickly who it is and then turn it over to the Department of Justice for prosecution.”
Barr also commented on the White House’s refusal to condemn the public doxing and planned protests of Supreme Court justices’ homes by saying,
“Well, I was appalled that they didn’t just come out and condemn this. It really to me to, you know, to allow the doxing of Supreme Court justices. And as she says, there’s a lot of passion. As you say, it was obviously done precisely to intimidate them and it does expose them to additional threats.”
