Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead back in 2016 at a ranch. It seems really unusual and the timing did as well.
Some of the evidence from the scene suggests that foul play could have been involved but nothing has been proven. For example, the owner of the ranch where Scalia was found said that there a pillow over his head when they found him.
Nonetheless, Scalia’s death was ruled as a heart attack.
Then the fight started in Washington for who would get to appoint the new justice to replace Scalia. It could have been Obama which would have been another liberal judge appointed to the highest court in the land. Or they could wait and hopefully get a Republican president who would appoint a conservative justice, which they did.
Ultimately, President Trump won the election and chose Neil Gorsuch, a conservative to replace him.
Now, some new documents reveal exactly what happened to Scalia, and it’s stranger than we thought.
According to Conservative Tribune,
Confusion and disorder compromised the U.S. Marshals Service’s response to Justice Antonin Scalia’s death, according to new documents obtained by a watchdog group.
Fix the Court, a judicial transparency group, obtained internal records from the USMS revealing local marshals were not notified of the justice’s death for several hours following his passing, and were slow to respond to the remote west Texas hunting ranch where he was found dead.
The documents, “present new information on how federal agents responded to a momentous event in an isolated part of the country and for the first time reveal the formal policies, and underscore the shortcomings therein,” said Gabe Roth, Fix the Court’s executive director.
The United States Marshals are being charged with protecting members of the Court. Justices have the option of protection when they are traveling or socializing. Records prove that Scalia had declined to have protection when he made his way to the west Texas ranch where he ultimately died. He did ask for assistance when he moved from one plane to another at William P. Hobby Airport in Houston, Texas.
Documents also show a timeline of the day that he died. It also suggests that marshals were slow when responding to reports from the ranch that Scalia was staying at.
The Daily Caller reported:
It’s not clear that the Marshals understood Scalia was dead after their conversation with Presidio law enforcement. Twenty minutes later at 1:00 pm the west Texas Marshals office called the agency’s communications center and relayed that “a member of Justice Scalia’s party was dead.”
The first federal agents did not arrive on scene until 2:38 pm, two hours after they were summoned by local sheriffs, and almost four hours after Justice Scalia was found dead. At that point, Marshals secured the facility and the justice’s remains, while transferring his personal effects to an agency safe.
