Biden Administration: Supreme Court Draft Leak Does Not Constitute A Federal Crime

Objectivity 4.0 | Credibility 4.5 | Relevance 4.8

The unprecedented Supreme Court draft leak is not presently viewed as a crime by the Biden Administration.  NBC News reported, “Administration officials said the Justice Department’s view, at this early stage, is that the leak did not constitute a federal crime.”  In a statement on Tuesday from Chief Justice John Roberts, he said the leak is a “betrayal of the confidences of the Court”.  Former U.S. Attorney General William Barr stated that the leak could constitute a crime and a further investigation by a special council may be needed.
