US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts issues a statement confirming the authenticity of a draft opinion published by Politico, which indicated that the top legal panel is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Roberts calls the leak a “betrayal” and “singular and egregious betrayal of trust,” but insists that it “will not succeed” in undermining the court’s integrity.

He says he has ordered an investigation to determine the identity of Politico’s source.
