“Too bad Politico didn’t treat the leaked draft opinion as it did Hunter Biden’s laptop,” iconic conservative commentator Mark Levin said Monday, after Politico published a story about an alleged draft of a Supreme Court opinion signaling the court is planning to reverse the infamous Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion.

While Politico censored the news of scandalous emails contained in a laptop owned by President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, it chose to gravely damage the Supreme Court and pressure its Justices to reverse course, Levin wrote on Twitter:

“1. Too bad Politico didn’t treat the leaked draft opinion as it did Hunter Biden’s laptop and sit on it. Instead, it contributed mightily to gravely damaging the Supreme Court by publishing it.

“2. It wanted to protect Joe Biden and censored the laptop story.  It wanted to put pressure on the justices and supports abortion on demand.”

“The leak of the alleged early draft opinion from the Court to Politico continues the Marxist war on the Constitution and the civil society,” Levin wrote in an earlier tweet reacting to the leak of the Supreme Court draft document.

What’s more, the leak has emboldened the push by liberal politicians, like self-proclaimed “Democratic Socialist” Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) to destroy both the Senate and the Constitution:

“Marxist Bernie Sanders insists that as a result of the leak, the Senate kill the filibuster rule and adopt Roe as a statute.  In other words, Sanders wants to destroy the Senate as well as the Supreme Court.”

In its article, titled “Supreme Court has voted to overturn abortion rights, draft opinion shows,” Politico reports that it has obtained the leaked document revealing that the Supreme Court plans to overturn Roe v. Wade:

“The Supreme Court has voted to strike down the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, according to an initial draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito circulated inside the court and obtained by POLITICO.

“The draft opinion is a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision which guaranteed federal constitutional protections of abortion rights and a subsequent 1992 decision – Planned Parenthood v. Casey – that largely maintained the right. “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Alito writes.”
