Brewer interviewed for WABI about Supreme Court draft opinion leak

Mark Brewer, professor and chair of the Department of Political Science at the University of Maine, spoke to WABI (Channel 5 in Bangor) about the leak of the Supreme Court’s draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade. Brewer says that the leak is unprecedented, and in his 35 years following American politics, he never dealt with an instance like this. “For example, presidential administrations. That’s one big leak after another, but the Supreme Court has long been the exception to that rule. It’s incredibly secretive. Very little comes out until they’re ready for it to come out. Access is tightly controlled to a really small inner circle, so for something like this to happen, is incredibly shocking,” Brewer said.
