Report Sen. Mike Lee no longer in serious consideration for the Supreme Court opening

Mr. Trump has reportedly narrowed his list down to four names: Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, Judge Thomas Hardiman of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and Judge Raymond Kethledge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

Leo said that it was impossible to predict the positions of any of the leading candidates for the seat on abortion.

Mr Trump is due to make his announcement on Monday. Mr Thapar was on the shortlist of candidates after judge Antonin Scalia died in 2016. Just days after his inauguration in January 2017 he nominated the conservative justice Neil Gorsuch to the court.

Kavanaugh is said to have the inside track within the White House, including the support of White House Counsel Don McGahn, who's supervising the search.

"I've never seen a president of the United States in effect make himself a puppet of outside groups and choose from a group of right-wing fringe ideologues that are prepared on this list", the CT lawmaker said on ABC just moments after Leo's interview.

The son of Indian-American immigrants, Thapar is the Nation's first Article III judge of South Asian descent. I do think the president has to think about who is the easiest to get confirmed here. "I think it's a bit of a scare tactic and rank speculation more than anything else". Those are very terrific people. "I'll give you the answer", Trump said.

"It is extraordinary", Blumenthal said.
