Chuck Schumer feared this day would come.
Every Democrat in Washington is nervous.
And now Chuck Schumer is about to receive the one letter that will put him out of a job.
West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin hails from one of the most pro-Trump states in America.
Manchin would like to run for governor or re-election in 2024 so marching in lockstep with Joe Biden’s socialist agenda would be a political death sentence.
That reality infuriates Democrats because negotiations over Joe Biden’s proposed $3.5 trillion socialist spending bill stalled over Manchin and fellow Democrat Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema’s opposition to the price tag.
Democrats need all 50 senators on board to use the reconciliation process to bypass a GOP filibuster.
Democrat activists and socialist members of Congress expressed their frustrations with Manchin and falsely accused the anti-gun Manchin of being a Republican.
But Manchin has his own cards he can play to flex his leverage.
Mother Jones reporter David Corn published a bombshell story claiming Manchin will leave the Democrat Party unless Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer agree to his demands for a smaller socialist spending bill.
“In recent days, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) has told associates that he is considering leaving the Democratic Party if President Joe Biden and Democrats on Capitol Hill do not agree to his demand to cut the size of the social infrastructure bill from $3.5 trillion to $1.75 trillion, according to people who have heard Manchin discuss this. Manchin has said that if this were to happen, he would declare himself an ‘American Independent.’ And he has devised a detailed exit strategy for his departure,” Corn wrote.
Corn doubled down in an appearance on MSNBC stating that Manchin would execute a two-step process to leave the party.
First, Manchin would send a letter to Schumer announcing he quit Democrat Senate leadership.
If that did not force socialists to backdown Manchin would then change his party registration to independent.
“The first step is that he would send a letter to Chuck Schumer, the Democratic Senate leader and remove himself or resign from a Democratic leadership post,” Corn explained. “People don’t know these things, but he’s Vice Chairman of the Democratic Senate Committee on Policy and Communications… He then would wait a week to see if that had any impact, presumably help him win whatever he’s trying to get out of the negotiations. And then after that, he would change his registration from Democrat to independent and he would call himself an American independent.”
If Manchin left the Democrat Party that could tip the majority to the Republican Party depending on who Manchin caucused with.
Should Manchin completely walk away from the Democrat Party that would put Mitch McConnell in charge of the Senate and functionally end Joe Biden’s presidency.
On MSNBC, Corn defended his reporting.
“Sourcing is impeccable and he knows it. He knows what we know,” Corn stated.
Conspiracy theorist and race-obsessed host Joy Reid played a clip of Manchin denying the report.
“Bull$hit spelled with a B-U-L-L, capital B,” Manchin stated.
But Corn did not back down on Manchin threatening to leave the Democrat Party.
“He has now said it’s B-U-L-L,” Corn shot back. “It’s actually T-R-U-E.”
