Report: John Roberts Switched his Vote (And who leaked?)

Over the weekend CBS News reported that Chief Justice John Roberts intended to strike down Obamacare but later switched his vote.  Yes, I believe the report and think CBS actually did a good job here.

What may be just as interesting is the question of who are the leakers at the Supreme Court.  Whoever leaked, and it had to have been insiders, must have been very motivated as this is something that is just not done.  It is a likely career-destroyer if a clerk does this and is discovered.  And if it is a justice . . .

In any case, it shows enormous discontent with and/or disrespect for Justice Roberts and his ruling.  And I agree that “this has the potential to be a major story that could tear open the Supreme Court, and not in a good way.”
