Pres. Trump: 'Very Close' To Making Final Supreme Court Pick

Warnings that President Donald Trump's Supreme Court justice nominee will help overturn a 1973 ruling that legalized abortion is a "scare tactic", a presidential adviser on judicial issues said Sunday.

But the four judges who are apparently the finalists for President Donald Trump's second Supreme Court nomination are being measured against a set of questions that go well beyond age and ideology.

National media reports indicate that Trump is considering the pluses and minuses of four finalists, all of them federal appeals court judges: Brett Kavanaugh of Washington, D.C.; Thomas Hardiman of Pennsylvania; Amy Coney Barrett of IN; and Raymond Kethledge of MI. Kelly Ayotte served as the "sherpa" for Justice Neil Gorsuch in 2017.

Leonard Leo, who is on leave from the Federalist Society and has been advising Trump over the court nomination, said he assumes Kavanaugh, Barrett, Hardiman and Kethledge "are the four" who are getting the most focus.

Hardiman has a tale Republicans like McConnell love: a former taxi driver from the key swing state of Pennsylvania who comes with the recommendation of fellow 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Maryanne Trump Barry - the president's sister. He was said to be the leading contender in the days after Justice Anthony M. Kennedy announced his retirement.

Education: Barrett received her undergraduate degree from Rhodes College in Memphis and studied law at the University of Notre Dame where she is a longtime law professor.

Barrett - a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who became a federal judge last fall - excited social conservatives since she was questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings a year ago, but her brief time on the bench has raised questions about her experience.

Kethledge, 51, has served on the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals since 2008 after also being appointed by Bush. He co-authored a book with Army veteran Mike Erwin of The Positivity Project published past year called "Lead Yourself First: Inspiring Leadership Through Solitude". On Sunday he was back to citing "the four people".

The White House has assembled a team to handle communications, strategy and messaging coordination to defend and push the nomination through on Capitol Hill. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said over the weekend on "Fox News Sunday". Add Supreme Court as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Supreme Court news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

"This is probably the biggest appointment to happen since I got out of law school in 1980", Byrne said. "And I expect we will do that on sort of a normal timetable, a couple of months".

An official said Thursday that Trump had completed his scheduled interviews for potential nominees.
