reported on Wednesday that Sen. Joe Manchin( D-W. Va. )had actually informed associates he was considering stopping the Democratic Celebration and had a specific strategy on how to do so, he informed Capitol Hill press reporters the article was” bullshit.” He was wrong. The sourcing was impressive. Now he has actually shifted his position and come up with a cover story– which, too, is inaccurate. In an interview with The Hill’s Steve Clemons, who is a personal pal ofManchin(and of mine, too ), Manchin said of the Mother Jones article, “What he reported is merely untrue …I’m not threatening to leave. Why would I? I’m extremely protected in my positions and honestly, I’m not the one stressed.” Clemons composes:” What is true, “Manchin informed The Hill,” is that I have told the

president, Chuck Schumer, and even the entire Caucus that if it is ’em barrassing’ to them to have a moderate, centrist Democrat in the mix and if itwould assist them publicly, I might become an Independent– like Bernie– and after that they could describe some of this to the public saying it’s made complex to corral these two independents, Bernie and me.” Manchin characterized his offer as an effort that would help Biden and Schumer better discuss the various perspectives in their caucus to Democrats Manchin made a comparable declaration to Fox reporter Kelly Phares on Thursday early morning. NEW: @Sen_JoeManchin on if he ever had a plan to switch celebrations tells me he made an offer

to switch to independent if him being a moderate centrist was triggering the Dem Party any problems.
