States are getting prepared in case the leaked Supreme Court draft decision to end Roe V Wade becomes official.

Among those states is Virginia, with its new Republican leadership it has changed where it stands on the landmark Supreme Court Roe V Wade decision.

When the Democrats were in control of the state Virginia argued against ending Roe V Wade and for stopping Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban along with 21 other states.

Virginia Republican Attorney General Jason Miyares has taken another tack and has joined the 19 states calling for an end to the 1970s Supreme Court decision.

“The [new] Attorney General has reconsidered Virginia’s position in this case,” he said in a letter to the Supreme Court. “Virginia is now of the view that the Constitution is silent on the question of abortion, and that it is therefore up to the people in the several states to determine the legal status and regulatory treatment of abortion.”

Republican Montana Rep. Matt Rosendale made a startling accusation against the liberal Justices on the Supreme Court.

Speaking to Newsmax TV he said that he believes some of the Justices on the court know leaked the draft decision that would end Roe V Wade if it becomes the final ruling of the Justices.

“We all could probably agree that the justices that were appointed by Democrat presidents know who the leaker was,” the representative said. “What bothers me, it’s not only the undermining that it did of the institution and the trust factor that these folks have with each other,” it’s that now that the trust is broken, “it’s very difficult to restore it.”

He said that now that the trust of the Justices have been broken “it’s very difficult to restore it.”

He said that he is not certain if leaking the decision is a crime but he is certain that protesting in front of the homes of the Justices is.

“It is a federal crime to go in and try and get a justice to change their vote,” the representative said. “To try and influence the outcome of a court decision is a crime. It’s a federal crime, and again, we see the Department of Justice is laying down on the job and not pursuing these people that are trying to intimidate them.”

And he believes that the person who did leak the information is going to be discovered.

“There could be more people involved, and those people could go all the way to the top,” the representative said. “Don’t eliminate the judges because you know people, so there’s no way that would happen. No way. Think about it. Michael Sussmann is on trial right now for Russiagate. That happened six years ago. We’re only getting answers right now. I hope it doesn’t take another six years to get answers to what happened at the Supreme Court.”

Rosendale also discussed the skyrocketing price of gasoline, which has hit a record $4.59 a gallon nationwide, and said he thinks the price will go even higher because the Biden administration will not do what is needed for the nation to return to the energy dominance it had under the Trump administration.

Rosendale serves in the House Natural Resources Committee, which has assembled a package of bills to mandate the Biden administration to authorize permits for drilling and for pipelines that are in place.

“The higher energy prices hurt the people on the lowest end of the income scale the most, and when you live in a very large rural state like Montana, this is incredibly hurtful to the weekly budget of anybody who lives there,” he said. “You have great distances of travel, and when you get to the store now, you’re finding out that the products are going to cost you a lot more as well. So this is just very bad. It’s inflation. The inflation that we see in the numbers that are reflected don’t even include the energy costs.”

And he believes that the gas price increase is going to affect other aspects of the economy.

“People aren’t buying the things that they would normally buy in the summer: grills, cars, electronics,” the representative said. “They’re saving their money. They’re prioritizing what money they have for gas and groceries, which makes perfect sense. It affects all of us.”
