Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., announced on Tuesday that he will oppose the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, the Washington Examiner is reporting.

“We currently have a president whose conduct is at the center of a federal criminal investigation, but in his testimony before the Judiciary Committee, Judge Kavanaugh refused to say whether he thinks it is constitutional for presidents to be investigated, and whether he continues to believe that the president has the power to fire a prosecutor criminally investigating him,” Warner said.

“In this country, no one, not even the president, is above the law. Should the president’s legal team decide, as they have threatened, to contest that principle in court, it is imperative that the Supreme Court ensure that the president is held accountable.”

Warner is the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee.

He joins a growing list of Democrats opposing Kavanaugh, including Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire, who both announced their decisions on Monday, according to the New Hampshire Union Leader.
