Ever since the shocking Supreme Court ruling that upheld Obamacare in power, many people wondered why Chief Justice Roberts, who everyone thought was a conservative Justice, ruled in favor of it.
Well thanks to Wikileaks, we know how liberals got the Justice to rule in favor of the socialist healthcare law.
This week’s leaks show Hillary Clinton ally Neera Tanden laying out a strategy to intimidate the Supreme Court to uphold ObamaCare.
Ms. Tanden runs the Center for American Progress, the think tank that is essentially an arm of the Clinton campaign. CAP’s former chief, John Podesta, is now the Clinton campaign chairman, and on June 2, 2015 Ms. Tanden sent an email to Jake Sullivan, a key Clinton aide, copying Mr. Podesta and Jennifer Palmieri, another campaign operative.
…Ms. Tanden wrote that, “As Jennifer will remember, it was pretty critical that the President threw the gauntlet down last time on the Court, warning them in the first case that it would politicize the role of the Court for them to rule against the ACA. As a close reader of the case, I honestly believe that was vital to scaring Roberts off.”
What it comes down to is that they got their writers in different publications to threaten John Roberts with the one thing he hates – the politicization of the court. By telling him that he would be bringing politics into the court if he knocked the law down, they found the one thing that really gets to him.
No big massive conspiracy, no blackmailing, just old simple mundane persuasion.
Kinda remarkable, isn’t it?
