So everyone is anxiously awaiting Trump’s pick for the SCOTUS tonight, especially liberals who are angry, frustrated, and utterly infuriated. Meanwhile, we on the right are like a fat kid eyeing a case of candies and wondering which one we’ll get to savor. For generations.
Anyway, there are some big league hints that are dropping ahead of the unveiling:
Buzz at the US courthouse in DC: Brett Kavanaugh spotted leaving in a black sedan accompanied by four black SUVs with security agents presumed to be Secret Service, per source.— Peter Baker (@peterbakernyt) July 9, 2018
Ok, here’s something:— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) July 9, 2018
Source just called w/ two pieces of circumstantial evidence, both strongly pointing to KAVANAUGH. Intriguing data points, but not 100% solid.
Asked another good source by text if he could confirm...”unable.” Other sources have gone dark.
FYI - current talk from LawyerSmack people is that Barrett's on a plane to DC with her family right now. #ScotusPick— Keith Lee (@associatesmind) July 9, 2018
So late last week I tweeted something critical of Kavanaugh. By the end of the day I'd gotten calls from White House staff, outside people involved in the process, and about a dozen texts from people in and out of the White House defending Kavanaugh.— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) July 9, 2018
I'm told Mike Lee has been spotted flying to Washington today....— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) July 9, 2018
If it's Kavanaugh, hard to see how he gets blocked. He's at least as qualified as Gorsuch, just as shrewd, and the shimmer of doubt from conservatives would gives Collins/Murkowski cover to say that they stood up to the right.— David French (@DavidAFrench) July 9, 2018

If it is Barrett, I'm voting for Trump in 2020 despite tariffs, etc.— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) July 9, 2018
No matter who it is, you can be sure liberals will overreact and implode, and we’ll try to provide you with the most entertaining examples at the Riiiight Scooooop!!!
The HATCH-MAN weighs in!!
BREAKING: @OrrinHatch told a few of us that he knows who the SCOTUS pick is and "doesn't think" (polite Hatch language) it's Amy Coney Barrett."— Lisa Desjardins (@LisaDNews) July 9, 2018
OMG NOOOO UPDATE:
Jeanine Pirro spotted walking out of Reagan National Airport in new shoes to a waiting black SUV.— Scott Greenfield (@ScottGreenfield) July 9, 2018
IS BARRETT OUT?!!?
Judge Amy Barrett was seen moments ago at her home in South Bend, Indiana -- less than two hours before the President is set to announce his Supreme Court pick from the White House, @KToropin reports— Phil Mattingly (@Phil_Mattingly) July 9, 2018
OMG BARRETT IS OUT!!!
Our producer in South Bend just saw Judge Amy Coney Barrett at her home asked if she was the SCOTUS pick: “I can’t confirm nor deny anything but you can see that I’m here.”— Eric Marrapodi (@EricMarrapodi) July 9, 2018
OMG OMG BARRETT IS OUT!!!
DO we have a winner!?!?!
WSJ: On Monday, Mr. Trump had settled on two finalists and was leaning toward Judge Kavanaugh based on what he saw as an impressive academic pedigree and judicial credentials, one person close to the White House said.https://t.co/3L2JXbNiZW— Lauren Gambino (@laurenegambino) July 9, 2018
Looks like we have a winner
It’s Kavanaugh https://t.co/0lSva10Mxo— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) July 10, 2018
