Via daughter Jaime:
“I don’t give a #@&^ about ‘Bush v. Gore’… at that time we didn’t have RIOTS!”
A staffer “heard *SCREAMING* through the walls as Justice Roberts & other liberal Justices were insisting this case *NOT* be taken up…”
Wonder why Texas’ case was dropped? Here’s why: pic.twitter.com/rCpf5vwqSQ

The following is my transcript in case the original goes away:
It was written by someone is a current staffer for one of the Supreme Court Justices…
I’ll just describe the report to you the report which I just read and you can make of it what you will.
He said that the Justices they always do [sic] went into a closed room to discuss, you know, cases they are taking or to debate. There’s no phones, no computers, no nothing, no one else is in the room except for the nine Justices.
It’s typically very civil. They usually don’t hear any sound. They just debate what they are doing.
But when the Texas case was brought up, he said he heard screaming through the walls as Justice Roberts and the other liberal justices were insisting that this case not be taken up.
And the reason, the words that were heard through the wall when Justice Thomas and Alito were citing Bush versus Gore, from John Roberts were, “I don’t give a [blank] about that case. I don’t want to hear about it. At that time we didn’t have riots!”
So what he was saying, was that he was afraid of what would happen if they did the right thing. And I’m sorry, but That. Is. Moral. Cowardice.
And we, in the SREC, I’m a SRC member, we put those words in very specifically because the charge of the Supreme Court is to openly be our final arbitrator, our final line of defense, for right and wrong. And they did not do their duty.
So I think we should leave these words in because I want to send a strong message them.
See also 1:32:31 (Its Texas Congressman Matt Patrick Texas Cong. Dist. 32) for more context.
This is, literally, hearsay evidence. But if true, SCOTUS is sending a very clear message of how to get your way if the law and evidence isn’t on your side. The message will be heard loud and clear and the lesson learned will have dire long term consequences.
Update: This is probably false, at least in part. They have been meeting via video conferencing for months.
It’s possible something like this happened on a video call, but we have no evidence of that.
