[Ed. – Advice to go slow with this until the actual announcement is always good. Washington certainly seems to think it’s in the bag though.]
President Donald Trump has decided to select Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court seat left vacant by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, according to two sources familiar with the process.
A formal announcement is slated for Saturday at the White House.
If confirmed, Barrett, 48, a federal appeals court judge who has been reliably conservative on issues like abortion, would be the youngest justice on the high court. Her presence would also cement a conservative majority, as she replaces one of the court’s most outspoken liberals.
