BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Fox News contributor constitutional law expert Jonathan Turley joins us now. Jonathan, what's the bigger story? The decision that could come down in June that this is overturned, or that it leaked out ahead of time, which looks to be Justice Alito's not finished notes on this.


JONATHAN TURLEY (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Well, they're both huge stories. But the decision is not yet complete. Decisions can change. People voting on one side or the other can change. Majority opinions can become dissenting opinions. What is clear is that what occurred with this leak was an unspeakably unethical act. And it is, unfortunately, a sign of our times. We're living in an age of rage where nothing seems inviolate anymore. No principle seems sacred. And it makes some of us feel almost naive. You know, even though this is a city that floats on a rolling sea of leaks, the court was always an island of integrity. And most of us didn't think this day would come. I'm not too sure why. Maybe it's because we let hope triumph over experience. But the court has a long tradition that it would not yield to politics, it would not yield to dirty tricks. Somebody shattered that tradition. And the investigation that will now ensue is going to shatter the culture of the court. It's going to take a lot to get to the bottom of this. Yes, it's a small institution, it's a small number of people that are likely involved. But whoever did this likely took steps to hide their tracks.
