Transcript for Trump says he's narrowed Supreme Court justice list to 5 names
Was there a security breach involving the president on air force one? Was a comedian able to get through the line? Did the president think he was a senator? The president also revealing his possible picks down to the supreme court. The one question he said he probably will not ask. Here's Terry Moran. Reporter: Tonight president trump reveals he narrowed his list to five names, two of them women. He said he'll announce his choice on July 9th.

The white house is not confirming this. We called senator Menendez called and asked why he called. It was a comedian who was able to have a conversation with president trump. The president talking about deals on immigration. Had he released information he shouldn't have, this would have been a real security brief.
