President Trump has promised to announce his nominee to fill the vacant Supreme Court on Saturday at 5pm, but word has already leaked out Friday evening on who he has chosen.

Multiple sources have reportedly told the media that the president has chosen Judge Amy Coney Barrett, 48, a former clerk for the late Justice Antonin Scalia, to fill the seat vacated by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Fox News reported the following:

Barrett has long been considered a front-runner for the seat after she was closely examined to potentially replace former Justice Anthony Kennedy’s on the high court. Though Trump eventually selected Justice Brett Kavanaugh for the slot, news outlets reported at the time that Trump at the time said he was “saving her for Ginsburg.”

The appeals court judge is a former Notre Dame professor and a devout Catholic, a fact that was controversial at her 2017 confirmation hearing to her current seat on the 7th Circuit. “The dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern,” Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., told Barrett. She was eventually confirmed 55-43.

Barrett is expected to start meeting with Republicans senators on Tuesday. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he has enough votes to confirm Trump’s nominee.

  1. I liked her at first, but finding out more made me sour on her. She isn’t conservative enough with what she’s sided with. I heard she may recuse herself on some cases based upon what the Pope has said on the topic. She shouldn’t be doing that. I like Lagoa better from what I have heard about her. She seems to be more conservative, and she is also Catholic, like Barrett.. We don’t need another Roberts on the Court which is what we might be getting with Barrett. That’s not good.

  2. Lagoa is a better choice. Barrett voted for the lockdown in a case and is for forced vaccanations. She is old school conservative, like Roberts. Look closely at her record. We need someone even more conservative.

    Lagoa would have a better chance politically as well being latino.

    • I think Lagoa would have been first choice to help both the Florida and Latino vote, Democrats would have to be very careful not to offend Latino voters by downgrading her as his choice.

  3. Lagoa would have been the better cho. She was confirmed by the Senate by 80-15. She is a female Latina, thus bringing diversity to the court. Hardly someone the Democrats could have easily dismissed without looking like hypocrites. She would have strengthened Trumps relationships with the Hispanic community and Florida. Lagoa would have been the prudent political choice.
