The investigation is ongoing, but that has not stopped the interest from growing—especially on Twitter.
A person called Amit Jain clerks for Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
As a Yale student, Jain blasted Yale for supporting Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.
Jain was quoted in a 2017 Politico piece by Josh Gerstein.
Today, Gerstein published the draft SCOTUS opinion on Roe.

Many Twitter users have brought up past examples of Jain’s open leftward bias, including signing a letter slamming Yale University for supporting Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his nomination hearings.
All I’m gonna say is Amit Jain signed a letter while at Yale blasting Yale for supporting g Kavanaugh. Go google who he clerks for atm

There has also been speculation that Elizabeth Deutsch, who currently clerks for Justice Stephen Breyer, may be behind the leaking of these documents.
Lawyer and Twitter user Will Chamberlain revealed in a thread that much of Deutsch’s career has been focused on abortion. Although she does not have a direct connection to Gerstein, her husband was a reporter for Politico for a time and even shared bylines with Gerstein.
Meet Elizabeth Deutsch. She’s currently a law clerk for Justice Breyer.
And, in my humble opinion, she’s the most likely person to have leaked the draft Supreme Court opinion in Dobbs, purporting to overturn Roe v. Wade.

There has also been some speculation on the left that Justice Alito’s own clerk leaked the documents in order to ensure the repeal was passed.
