Alito: We Were ‘Targets for Assassination’
At a recent event, Supreme Court justice Samuel Alito said that the leak of the Dobbs decision made the judges “targets for assassination.” Let’s pray that something like this never happens again.
From Breitbart. Justice Samuel Alito warned Tuesday that the leak of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization put his life and the lives of other justices in danger, saying they became “targets for assassination.” …
“The leak also made those of us who were thought to be in the majority in support of overruling Roe and Casey targets for assassination because it gave people a rational reason to think they could prevent that from happening by killing one of us. And we know that,” Alito said at an event at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, DC.
The leak saw protests and leftist violence outside of justices’ homes in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia, including a 26-year-old California man who went to Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home with the goal of assassinating him. …
The leak appeared to be designed to intimidate justices, and Alito said it was an unprecedented breach from within the Court.
“It was a grave betrayal of trust by somebody, and it was a shock because nothing like that had happened in the past, so it certainly changed the atmosphere at the court for the remainder of last term,” he said. …
