President Donald J. Trump is expected to announce his nomination to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat on the Supreme Court at 5 p.m. ET on Saturday. On Saturday morning, the Trump re-election campaign sent an email to subscribers containing a countdown clock for the announcement.
Barrett, who is widely expected to be nominated by President Trump to a seat on the Supreme Court, was filmed leaving her home in South Bend, Ind. early Saturday afternoon.
She was joined by husband Jesse Barrett and six of their seven children, all dressed for a special occasion.
Daughter Juliet, 9, held her mother’s hand as she stole a glance at the news cameras that had set up camp across the street from the family’s tidy brick home — but Barrett studiously ignored them.
The family piled into a silver Honda Odyssey, with Barrett behind the wheel.
