  • Who Will Trump Nominate for the Supreme Court? Here are a Few Options

Judge Brett Kavanaugh has a "slight" advantage in the race to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court, according to a conservative legal scholar who helped shape President Trump's list of possible justices.

On Saturday, Trump also sent a Twitter tease, writing "Big decision will soon be made on our next Justice of the Supreme Court!" Foreseeing inevitable news break-ins to offer coverage and analysis, broadcasters are rejiggering their primetime lineups so as to keep too much fresh summer fare from being preempted.

Mr Trump has chosen prime time to make the announcement. Other finalists are said to be appeals court judges Amy Coney Barrett, Raymond Kethledge and Thomas Hardiman. The three others interviewed were justices Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Raymond Kethledge. Mr Thapar was on the shortlist of candidates after judge Antonin Scalia died in 2016.

"I'm very close to making a final decision". McCaskill, a centrist Democrat who broke with her other red state colleagues by voting against Neil Gorsuch previous year, insists that she has not already made up her mind to vote "no" against retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy's successor.

Talking to reporters travelling with him to Montana overseas Air Force One, Trump said he had interviewed some "extraordinarily talented and brilliant" people during the process.




"Am I optimistic that [Trump is] going to nominate somebody that I would feel comfortable about?" said McCaskill.

A leading Democratic senator suggested that President Donald Trump is making himself "a puppet" by selecting a Supreme Court nominee from a list compiled by conservative groups.

This will be 6.30 am - Tuesday - local India time on July 10. I do think the president has to think about who is the easiest to get confirmed here.

"I think we can confirm any of the four names being mentioned", Blunt said on NBC's "Meet the Press". "The whole list is extraordinary", he said. On Sunday there was no indication that he had yet made his decision, as speculation continued to swirl around the appointment. "And I believe this person will do a great job", Trump said, according to ABC News.

Mr Trump had on Friday discussed the nomination with Vice President Mike Pence in Bedminster, New Jersey.
