President Donald Trump has completed the interview process for Supreme Court candidates after speaking with six judges, a source with knowledge of the selection process revealed to Fox News – and the president has his attention focused on three finalists.
Trump and his vetting team are moving quickly ahead of an expected announcement on Monday.
While liberal advocacy groups and others are gearing up for a major confirmation fight, Trump is charging ahead with an imminent decision to fill the seat of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, and potentially move the court more solidly to the right.
The president has interviewed six candidates: Appeals court judges Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett, Amul Thapar, Joan Larsen and Thomas Hardiman.
The interviews comprised seven conversations and Trump actually talked to one candidate twice.
Multiple sources indicated Kavanaugh, Kethledge and Barrett are currently the focus of attention.
