President Donald Trump wants everyone to tune in on Monday for his big SCOTUS reveal.

According to National Public Radio (NPR), he has reduced the names of the potential nominees to three judges - Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Raymond Kethledge.

Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of SC and Roy Blunt of Missouri said Sunday that they believe any of the top four contenders could get confirmed by the GOP-majority Senate.

While final nominees will be known only when Trump makes the announcement, this would be for the second time that Thapar might not be able to make the final cut after being interviewed by Trump.

The son of Indian-American immigrants, Thapar is the Nation's first Article III judge of South Asian descent. McCaskill, a centrist Democrat who broke with her other red state colleagues by voting against Neil Gorsuch a year ago, insists that she has not already made up her mind to vote "no" against retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy's successor.

Talking to reporters travelling with him to Montana overseas Air Force One, Mr Trump said he has interviewed some "extraordinarily talented and brilliant" people during the process. "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".

"I'm very close to making a final decision".

"Am I optimistic that [Trump is] going to nominate somebody that I would feel comfortable about?" said McCaskill.

This will be 6.30 am - Tuesday - local India time on July 10. "It's, well let's just say it's the four people". "But I'm putting conservative people on". I've argued cases before the Supreme Court for them. Honestly, I could pick any of the 25 and they would be terrific. We'll announce it on Monday.

"I think the world of Brett Kavanaugh", John Malcolm of the Heritage Foundation said on the Fox News "Sunday Morning Futures" program.

Mr Trump had on Friday discussed the nomination with Vice President Mike Pence in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Breitbart News has learned that, in private conversations with left-leaning reporters, McConnell is pushing the notion that Judge Raymond Kethledge will be unlikely to raise the ire of his Senate colleagues, potentially sparing him a confirmation battle in an election year.
