The Blaze -Last week, CNN ran a series of “exclusive” stories that revealed the Supreme Court’s private deliberations over President Donald Trump’s taxes. But how did CNN reporter Joan Biskupic get a hold of such sensitive information?
On the latest episode of “LevinTV,” BlazeTV host Mark Levin argued that Chief Justice John Roberts is likely the leaker.
Levin told his followers, “The chief justice of the United States — is enormously political, and I believe he is a leaker,” adding, “If there’s leaking going on, and there clearly is, one justice against another, it is a huge problem.”
Levin referenced a Newsweek article written by Josh Blackman, South Texas College of Law professor and author of “An Introduction to Constitutional Law: 100 Supreme Court Cases Everyone Should Know.” In his article, Blackman asserts that “the Supreme Court has turned into a sieve” and, worse, the leaks appear to be specifically designed to advance politically-motivated narratives. He then lists five steps Chief Justice Roberts can (but likely won’t) take to bring the Court back in order.
“You know, I hate to do this, I mean it’s not like we don’t wake up every morning with constant concerns about what’s going on in this country. But we’re seeing a complete breakdown of a civil society and a constitutional system,” Levin said. “The Supreme Court is turning into a sieve.
“This week, the Democrats have threatened to expand the number of justices on the Supreme Court and pack it with leftists. This is how evil and totalitarian the Democrats are right now. They’re prepared to burn down, not just cities, but burn down the whole damn country.”

Yesterday, during an appearance in Somerset, PA, VP Pence said Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. has been “a disappointment to conservatives.”
The Washington Times reports – “Look, we have great respect for the institution of the Supreme Court of the United States,” Mr. Pence told the Christian Broadcasting Network. “But Chief Justice John Roberts has been a disappointment to conservatives, whether it be the Obamacare decision or whether it be a spate of recent decisions all the way through Calvary Chapel.”
The vice president also cited the court’s recent decision to strike down a law in Louisiana that would have required doctors working at abortion clinics to have admitting privileges at local hospitals.
