Leonard Leo: It’s a ‘Scare Tactic’ to Claim Trump’s SCOTUS Nominee Will Overturn Roe v. Wade

“I think it's a bit of a scare tactic and rank speculation more than anything else," Leo said during an interview on Sunday.

Federalist Society VP Leonard Leo said that it’s not fair for Democrats to say that President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee will vote to repeal Roe v. Wade, calling such suggestions a “scare tactic” during an interview on Sunday.

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked Leo whether it is fair to say that anyone who made it on the Federalist Society’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees that Trump is choosing from will be an opponent of Roe v. Wade.

“No. First of all, nobody really knows. We’ve been talking about this for 36 years, going all the way back to the nomination of Sandra O’Connor, and after that 36-year period we only have a single individual on the court who has expressly said he would overturn Roe,” Leo said. “I think it’s a bit of a scare tactic and rank speculation more than anything else.”
