WATCH: Joe Scarborough Explains Why SC Leaker Was Probably a Conservative

For decades now, Conservative lawmakers have been attempting to overturn Roe vs. Wade. And earlier this week, it seems that they will soon get their wish with 5 Far-Right judges sitting on the bench.

Still, the GOP knows that the idea of overturning Roe vs. Wade is enormously unpopular. And thanks to the leak, Democrats have been given a big boost ahead of the 2022 midterms. So Republicans have been focusing on the leaker rather than the information that was revealed. Still, Joe Scarborough says, it is likely that the leak came from a Conservative.

The Morning Joe host explained, “I do agree with Ted, Senator Cruz, that it was leaked by someone unhappy in the direction the court was going, but the question is which person was moving and direction they were moving? The right-wing noise machine always turns into overdrive.”

Scarborough continued, “It’s more likely that somebody on the hard right was really pissed off that a Justice moved away from Alito’s really harsh right-wing diatribe on abortion. And instead, moved more towards Roberts’ way. It’s a classic, ‘hey, we’ve got the receipts, buddy. We’ve got — don’t even think about moving away from Alito and taking a more nuanced path. Because we have the receipts.'”

The host closed, “You know to me, I could be wrong, maybe Ted [Cruz} is right, maybe I’m wrong. But if you are just looking at this in the most Machiavellian way possible, it makes far more sense it was a fanatical law clerk on the right who leaked a document to stop one of the conservative members of the court from going away from Alito’s position and a more nuanced path towards a destination.”
