My friends, it sure looks like Amy Coney Barrett will be President Trump's pick for the Supreme Court and the next Justice of the United States Supreme Court!
Reporters caught the Barrett family leaving their house all dressed up for a party:
The Hill reports they're headed to D.C. Here are more details:
Judge Amy Coney Barrett is allegedly on her way to Washington, D.C., Bloomberg reported Saturday, a day after sources confirmed to The Hill that President Trump would nominate the conservative judge to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.
According to Bloomberg, a person familiar with the situation said that Barrett was flying to Washington on Saturday, with Trump planning to officially announce her nomination at a White House ceremony at 5 p.m. However, sources told Bloomberg that the president could still change his mind.
A video posted on Twitter by NBC News White House Correspondent Kelly O'Donnell appeared to show Barrett and her family leaving their Indiana home early Saturday afternoon.
A Republican official told The Hill on Friday that Trump began telling associates on Capitol Hill that he was planning to nominate Barrett.
Barrett, who in 2017 was nominated by Trump and confirmed to serve as a judge on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, is a devout Catholic, making her popular among conservative GOP members who are hoping to overturn the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion.
Trump had told reporters at Joint Base Andrews on Friday evening that he had made his decision in his “own mind” but did not confirm if Barrett was the choice.
“I haven’t said it was her, but she is outstanding,” Trump said of Barrett.
