Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the House Judiciary Committee's ranking Republican, tore into a former anti-abortion leader who alleged he was informed in advance about the outcome of a 2014 Supreme Court ruling Thursday, casting serious doubt on the whistleblower's allegations that the information came from Justice Samuel Alito.

Jordan sought to cast doubt on testimony by the Rev. Rob Schenck, a former anti-abortion activist who said he became privy to the outcome of an eight-year-old high court opinion in 2014 by a couple close with Alito three weeks before it was released to the public.

Schenck told the committee about his previous effort to recruit conservative Christian couples to serve as "stealth missionaries" to "bolster" Republican-appointed justices' views on matters related to anti-abortion causes. His efforts took place years before Alito wrote the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization opinion this summer that overturned Roe v. Wade, a ruling that was signaled to the nation by the leak of a draft opinion in early May.
