President Donald Trump is expected to put forth a nominee to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat in the coming days, multiple sources close to the president and with direct knowledge of the situation told ABC News.

The sources describes the list of potential nominees as very short and including at least one woman. U.S. Circuit Judge Amy Coney Barrett, a top contender for is seen as a leading contender, two sources tell ABC News.

Sources add that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already been in touch with members of the Republican caucus after news of Ginsburg’s passing was announced.

“In the last midterm election before Justice Scalia’s death in 2016, Americans elected a Republican Senate majority because we pledged to check and balance the last days of a lame-duck president’s second term. We kept our promise. Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party president’s Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year,” McConnell said in a statement following Ginsburg’s death.

“By contrast, Americans reelected our majority in 2016 and expanded it in 2018 because we pledged to work with President Trump and support his agenda, particularly his outstanding appointments to the federal judiciary. Once again, we will keep our promise,” he continued. “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”

    From what I have read about her, Amy Comey Barrett would be a terrific nominee and, God willing, SC Justice!! She’s a committed and dedicated conservative and would make the BEST decisions if nominated and elected!

    • Annabel says:

      President Trump should say he wants to replace the Justice Ginsberg seat on the S.C. with a woman in honour of the late Justice and then sit back and wait for the left to try and disparage the women he puts forward.

  • Nathan M. says:

    There’s three women and one man up for the position. I hope with all my heart it’s the man, because pandering to idpol needs to end and it won’t end as long as Republicans are feeding into it too.

    • DEb says:

      Would love to see Tom Cotton on the Supreme Court

      • flak says:

        next time, this time it MUST be a Woman,, the democrats will have a harder time creating any possible dirt since they have always takes the women’s side of any accusation

        • John F says:

          Agreed – as long as that Woman is well qualified! We’re in the process of a fight for the life of OUR Country as we know it! This is no time to worry about pandering to anything which can help us win! And it will be turning one of the Democrats own weapons against them!

        • Nathan M. says:

          Did being a woman protect Sarah Palin from being smeared and insulted by the Democrats? Or Michelle Bachmann? They have no principles, if a woman is one of theirs she’s a saint, if not she’s a dumb slut bimbo. Gender shouldn’t matter here, only merit.

  • Ann says:

    What would Chuck U. Schumer do? We know what he would do. What’s good for them is good for us. Enough said. They will scream and cry. Too fn bad! Remember when BHO said “uhhhh I won”? This time we won.

    • John F says:

      We can’t possibly piss the Dem’s off anymore than they already are – being willing to start a civil war because you aren’t winning is about as pissed as it gets! But I’d have to say the same thing goes for us, too! If the Dem’s somehow do win it’s our Country, or theirs, and this time, without a war, the Left will make sure that the GOP and Conservative America becomes a dead issue!

  • Steve Fye says:

    Before or after the election, it does not matter. Trump is going destroy “the Harris administration” hopeful with a bigger landslide than last time. This will motivate more votes for Trump than ever before. Nobody liked RBG and her baby killing and pedophilia.

    • John F says:

      Yes! But better safe doing it before the election than sorry at maybe not having the votes to do it after! We can’t possibly Piss off the democrats any more than they already are ( and who gives a crap if we do?), so…! Besides, it will once again show us how many dedicated Democrat operatives we have on our side of the aisle, and maybe encourage their voters to make some changes!

    GREATEST PRESIDENT EVER….

  • Severa says:

    Amy Comey Barrett I have heard since last time Kavanaugh was elected to the Supreme Court is that she would be a great Supreme Justice. It was all over Facebook then.

  • Karen Thomas says:

    The left will finish going nuts if Amy Barrett is put up for the USSC, and THEY WILL ATTACK HER RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. You can count on it.

    • flak says:

      and they will really show their true anti-American colors

      • John F says:

        As if we need to see any more of them to know who and what we are facing! This election is literally life or death for OUR Country! For the Dem’s it is only about life for THEIR Country, or waiting a while longer to get it! But they are impatient enough to promote open rebellion and make threats of more burning cities if they lose! If we are smart, we’ll take their hint and make sure we finish, permanently, whatever they start!
