DEBUNKED: No shouting match at Supreme Court — building was closed

By The Wiz

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.

FAKE NEWS CLAIM: “The Justices went into a closed room…When Texas case was brought up he said he heard screaming through the walls as Justice Roberts and the other liberal Justices were insisting…afraid of what would happen if they did right thing…Moral cowardice”

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.
