What’s Joe Manchin been doing as Democrats consider presidential candidates?

Doing a town hall at the University of Charleston

Yesterday, Manchin spoke at a town hall about a variety of subjects. On his impeachment vote, Manchin explained his reasoning:

On the subject of impeachment, Manchin said he made his decision to vote to convict Trump after listening to Alan Dershowitz, the . . .

Reporting the Trump/Manchin story

More misrepresentation and bias from the Wheeling Intelligencer

On page 2 of today's Wheeling Intelligencer, our local “newspaper” prints a little over half of an AP story that documents the feud between President Trump and West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. Comparing today's printed article with the Associated Press original, I found that the Intelligencer edited out a sentence explaining the . . .

Trump simply cannot move on

He just escalated his fight with WV's Joe Manchin -- one of few Democrats that have supported him

More on Manchin’s censure vote (with 1 pm and Manchin decision updates)

Sorry, Joe, it’s doomed -- you're going to have to vote on the articles of impeachment

Senator Manchin has proposed censuring President Trump rather than impeaching him. (See previous post.) Here’s more evidence from The Hill that it’s not going to happen:

Sen. Mike Braun (R-Ind.), asked if there was an appetite for a potential censure, said, “No. Zero.”
A spokesman for McConnell declined to answer a question . . .

"Moderate" Manchin proposes censuring Trump (with 2/4 update)

Why? To "unite across party lines"? I don't think that it's going to happen, Senator

From the Washington Post this evening:

Sen. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.), a moderate who is friendly with the White House, on Monday asked his colleagues to consider censuring President Trump as the Senate moves toward votes on impeachment.

“I do believe a bipartisan majority of this body would vote to censure President Trump . . .

Joe Manchin wants witnesses

In an interview this afternoon, Joe Manchin told Fox News that he wants to hear from witnesses:
