The American people are no closer today to knowing the identity of the person who leaked the Supreme Court decision of Dobbs vJackson Women’s Health Organization than they were when the ruling overturning Roe v. Wade was leaked in May. Republican Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) could change that in 2023.

Jordan is set to become the chair of the House Judiciary Committee once the GOP takes control of the House in January. He has made it abundantly clear that he wants an answer for the American people, and this was confirmed by one of his aides according to The Washington Examiner.

“Dozens and dozens of churches were attacked, dozens and dozens of pro-life crisis pregnancy centers were attacked, protests occurred at Supreme Court justices’ homes, and there was an assassination attempt on Justice Kavanaugh. But to date, in this Congress, not one hearing in the House Judiciary Committee about that leak. Not one hearing,” Jordan told reporters per the Examiner.

An investigation launched by Chief Justice John Roberts in May hasn’t resulted in any public updates. This led two senior congressional Democrats to demand answers from the court in November, as reported by Politico, suggesting that of all things, determining the identity of the leaker is a uniquely bipartisan proposition even in a divided Congress.

“A response pointing out the existence of rules is not responsive to questions about whether those rules were broken,” Democrat Reps. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island and Hank Johnson of Georgia wrote in their November letter, obtained by POLITICO. “It seems that the underlying issue is the absence of a formal facility for complaint or investigation into possible ethics or reporting violations. …. If the Court, as your letter suggests, is not willing to undertake fact-finding inquiries into possible ethics violations that leaves Congress as the only forum.”

Despite the letter from Whitehouse and Johnson, Newsmax reported that Jordan noted, “[T]o date, in this Congress, not one hearing in the House Judiciary Committee about that leak. Not one hearing.”
