Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) seems to be feeling the heat when it comes to President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch. Warner appeared on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Monday and was sweating profusely.
Mitchell asked Warner where he stood on the matter of Judge Gorsuch’s nomination. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has already made it clear that he intends to filibuster the nomination and asked his fellow Democrats to do the same.
“Listen, I met with the judge. He’s an intelligent guy. But in my private meeting and then in the hearings last week, I felt his answers were extraordinarily evasive,” Warner told Mitchell.
The MSNBC camera showed Warner sweating through his suit, but it wasn’t clear whether Mitchell’s line of questioning was making Warner nervous or if the bright lights of daytime cable news were intimidating the Virginia senator.
Mitchell asked asked Warner about the possibility of Republicans changing the rules of the Senate to get around a potential Democratic filibuster and whether that was a significant risk.
“We do great damage to the institution if anybody were to change that filibuster rule,” Warner told Mitchell, while continuning to sweat profusely.
