    Manchin says voting on the Supreme Court justice "will only deepen the political tribalism." West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin on Tuesday opposed the Senate voting on a Supreme Court nomination before the Nov. 3 presidential election – ending speculation about whether the Democrat lawmaker representing a conservative-leaning state would vote with Republicans. .... "Pursuing an overtly partisan approach to confirming a Supreme Court justice will only deepen the political tribalism we are witnessing across this country," Manchin also said. "I implore every senator, regardless of party, to honor their responsibility to act in a manner that brings this country together...

    During an interview with the “Fox News Rundown” podcast released on Wednesday, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) criticized the HEROES Act, the $3 trillion coronavirus legislation passed by House Democrats back in May, by stating that he doesn’t “support that amount that they’re putting towards different areas,” and arguing that while there are needs, “you can’t cure all of the social needs within a pandemic bill or a health crisis bill.” Manchin said, “I think, if you look at the Democrats right now, from the House side, they’ve said, we’ve passed a bill. So, we’ve done our job. And it’s a...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) is warning that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will have to “moderate” if he continues to maintain his frontrunner status in the Democrat primary, the West Virginia lawmaker emphasizing that he is “not going socialist.” Sanders’ successes in both Iowa and New Hampshire, combined with Joe Biden’s (D) poor performances, have several lawmakers increasingly considering the possibility of Vermont’s socialist senator winning the Democrat nomination.

    Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., aka (by President Trump) “Joe Munchkin,” said Monday that he wasn’t bothered by a flurry of weekend taunts by Trump, who has singled him out, along with Mitt Romney, R-Utah, for abuse for his vote in the Senate impeachment trial. Trump was acquitted of two articles of impeachment brought by the House, with all 47 Senate Democrats voting to convict him, joined by Romney on the first count, which charged him with abuse of power. “Do you think names bother me?” Manchin said in an interview on MSNBC (aka, by Trump, “MSDNC,” a play on the...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) isn't scared, and he doesn't think his fellow Democrats should be either. Manchin on Wednesday suggested he's open to calling Hunter Biden as a witness in the impeachment trial. "Being afraid to put anybody that might have pertinent information is wrong, no matter if you're a Democrat or a Republican," he said during in an interview with MSNBC's Willie Geist. "If it's relevant then it should be there."

    Three moderate Democrat senators — Joe Manchin (WV), Doug Jones (AL), and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) —may ultimately vote to acquit President Donald Trump in the upper chamber’s impeachment trial, according to a new report. At least one of the senators have signaled that they could vote in favor of only one impeachment article — the abuse of power — but oppose obstruction of Congress. In an interview with Politico this week, Manchin said he will only support one of the articles if he “can explain one and not the other.” The West Virginia Democrat, who has yet to decide...

    A new poll commissioned by The Club for Growth PAC, a conservative advocacy group, shows that nearly half of West Virginia voters would view Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) more negatively if he votes to remove President Trump from office. The survey shows that Manchin, who won election to a third term in 2018, could face strong political blowback if he votes to convict Trump on one or two articles of impeachment passed by the Democratic-controlled House. The survey of 500 likely voters in West Virginia found that 48 percent would have a less favorable view of Manchin if he votes...

    More Democrats are urging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to send the articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate so a trial can get underway. Those joining the list include Sen. Dianne Feinstein from Pelosi's home state of California, as well as Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and independent Angus King of Maine, who caucuses with the Democrats. “The longer it goes on the less urgent it becomes,” Feinstein told Politico about Pelosi's withholding of the articles approved last month, charging Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. “So if it’s serious and urgent, send them...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) told CNN he is “torn” on whether to back conviction of President Donald Trump in a U.S. Senate trial should the House of Representatives pass Articles of Impeachment. Manchin said he is “very much torn” on the issue of impeaching Trump, a huge blow to Democrats as they seek to hold their party together heading into a contentious House floor vote next week.

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D., W.Va.) rejected presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders's claim that he could pressure the West Virginia senator and other moderate Democrats to vote in favor of Medicare for All. "Bernie is damn wrong on that one," Manchin said Wednesday when asked by NBC News about Sanders saying his health care plan would have support from moderate Democratic senators. Sanders said in a CNBC interview that moderate senators, including Manchin and Sen. Jon Tester (D., Mont.), would rally behind his agenda and deliver the votes to implement a government-run healthcare system. "Damn right they will," Sanders said when asked...

    On Wednesday Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) addressed Robert “Beto” O’Rourke’s confiscatory push on AR-15s and made clear, “[He’s] not taking my guns away from me.” Manchin then asked for someone to deliver that message to O’Rourke. Breitbart News reported that O’Rourke used the September 12, Democrat debate to tell AR-15 owners, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15.” Breitbart News reported that O’Rourke’s declaration was a game-changer which showed the Democrats’ intention to seize guns.

    HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — First lady Melania Trump visited West Virginia on Monday to learn how a city at the center of the nation’s opioid epidemic is grappling with the crisis. She met with federal, state and local officials in Huntington and heard how the area’s police, schools and health care centers are trying to fight the opioid scourge. “I am here to give you my support,” Trump told participants in the roundtable discussion. West Virginia has the country’s highest fatal opioid overdose rate and has struggled, like many other states, to confront the many aspects of the problem. Huntington...

    The Hill is reporting that Joe Manchin of West Virginia is fed up with nothing getting done in the Senate and is thinking seriously about leaving to run for Governor. Multiple sources indicate this is an ongoing frustration that peaked last month: Manchin’s patience reached a breaking point shortly before the Memorial Day recess, when the Senate finally finished debating a disaster relief bill that many lawmakers thought should have passed weeks earlier.A Democratic senator who requested anonymity recalled Manchin getting thoroughly fed up and threatening to retire before the end of the 116th Congress.“He said, ‘I’m out of...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) is eyeing a possible exit from the Senate, and his decision could be a significant factor in which party controls the majority in 2021. In moments of frustration, the centrist senator has gone so far as to tell colleagues he may leave the upper chamber before the end of this Congress, or after the 2020 elections. Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) keeps a close watch on Manchin, and the senators have a good working relationship. While Schumer recognizes that his West Virginia colleague can get exasperated by dysfunction in the Senate, he believes Manchin is...

    Joe Manchin is considering challenging Jim Justice in 2020 for West Virginia governor, telling Politico that he's "thinking about" running for the "best job in the world." Manchin told Politico he will make a decision this fall. "I don't think there's any hurry at all," Manchin said. The Democratic senator served as West Virginia's governor from 2005-2010. He won a special election in 2010 to serve the remainder of Robert C. Byrd's term in the Senate, following his death in June of that year. Manchin defeated Attorney General Patrick Morrisey by 3 percentage points in 2018 in his bid for...

    President Donald Trump lit into the U.S. intelligence community on Wednesday, telling his intel chiefs to "go back to school" just one day after they publicly contradicted him on several of his foreign policy priorities. "The Intelligence people seem to be extremely passive and naive when it comes to the dangers of Iran," Trump wrote on Twitter. "They are wrong! When I became President Iran was making trouble all over the Middle East, and beyond. Since ending the terrible Iran Nuclear Deal, they are MUCH different, but a source of potential danger and conflict." He continued, "They are testing Rockets...
