WASHINGTON, D.C. — Last night, the Wiz predicted the rumors about the Supreme Court justices screaming and cursing over the Texas election case was most likely fake news. It sounded too good to be true. Plus, the source of the information, an unnamed Supreme Court clerk, seemed off. SCOTUS clerks are not prone to leak and court is notorious for being a tightly run ship.
According to the Epoch Times, the Supreme Court spokesperson announced:
“The Court has been conducting its conferences remotely by phone since March when the building closed due to the pandemic.”
The spox’s claim checks out. The court has indeed been conducting hearings and deliberations (conferences) remotely by phone since the spring due to COVID-19. Moreover, the Supreme Court building has been closed.
Thus, the justices were never in “closed room” when they discussed the Texas lawsuit. They spoke about the case by phone.
I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but the rumored shouting match is disinformation. You got played.
