Leaks are more likely when the Court is highly politicized

I joked about it before, but I think all these leaks are more likely to happen when respect for the Court as an institution collapses. I don't think the leaks are damaging the reputation of the Court, as conservatives claim. But I do think it is the other way around. When the Court is widely recognized as a place for political machinations, then political machinations (like leaks) become fair game.
