resident Donald Trump is calling for the journalists who were involved in publishing a leaked Supreme Court draft opinion last year to be jailed if they decline to divulge the identity of their source.
The Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization draft opinion published by Politico in May 2022 revealed that the high court appeared poised to overturn Roe v. Wade — the court did just that with its official opinion in June 2022.
The Supreme Court Marshal’s report about the investigation into the leak noted that the probe had failed to uncover the culprit.
Trump, who announced last year that he is running for president again, said the reporter who broke the news about the leaked draft opinion should be thrown in jail if they refuse to disclose the identity of the leaker. Politico’s Josh Gerstein and Alexander Ward authored the piece last year about the leaked draft opinion. Trump also suggested imprisoning the editor and publisher as well if they do not identify the source.
