President Donald Trump is expected to nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett Saturday to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
A source close to Barrett told CNA Friday that the judge, who met with Trump this week, expects to be nominated to the post.
Several news outlets, including CNN and the NY Times, reported Friday that they had received confirmation of Trump's intention from the White House.
Trump is not known to have interviewed other candidates for the job, but sources stressed that the president could change his mind, even while he is reportedly indicating that Barrett is his selection.
