Following Monday’s late-night leak of a draft opinion stating that the Supreme Court has voted to overturn Roe v Wade, Chief Justice John Roberts is reportedly likely to involve the FBI in determining the source of the leak.

On Monday night, Politico published a draft opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito expressing the high court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade, with Alito writing: "Roe was egregiously wrong from the start."

In a tweet from CBS News’ Elizabeth Campbell, she wrote that sources have told fellow CBS News employee Jan Crawford that Roberts is "likely to order a full-blown investigation, involving the FBI, to determine the source."

Politico said that they received the copy of the draft opinion from "a person familiar with the court’s proceedings in the Mississippi case along with other details supporting the authenticity of the document."

Shortly after the leak spread across the internet, fences were erected on Supreme Court grounds, and groups of protestors gathered in the area.

The crowd chanted "We will not go back" and "Hey hey! Abortion bans have got to go!"

In response to the leak, a former Supreme Court clear told Chief Creative Officer at Turning Point USA Benny Johnson that the leak had to have come from a clerk or a Justice themselves. An FBI investigation will determine who exactly was behind the leak, whether it be a clerk, Justice, or someone else.
