The recent leak of a draft document about the possibility of scuttling Roe v. Wade is a god-send for the Democratic Party. They will let no crisis go to waste. The Democrats have a good idea that they will lose both houses of Congress this fall, so they are grasping at any straws that may come their way. The LEAK was a big straw for them.

To me, the opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito right now is nothing more than an opinion. However, Democratic leaders, such as Senator Chuck Schumer, treat the opinion as a report and not as a leak of a highly suspicious nature, especially from the Supreme Court, which apparently has never had a leak before.

Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders want to get rid of the filibuster so they can codify Roe v. Wade. There is no right to abortion in the Constitution or in the 14th Amendment. It is purely a Judges law.

I believe the leak was to Politico for the sole purpose of influencing the upcoming midterm and fall elections. I don’t think it was done to try to sway the SCOTUS. 

The Democrats have been falling on hard times because of the President’s actions and their own. This leak works so much in their favor and gives them the great opportunity to energize their base as they did in the last election with the pandemic, mail-in ballots and heaps of Zuckerberg money.
