Joe Manchin

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., speaks to reporters in the U.S. Capitol on Sept. 8 in Washington, D.C.

WASHINGTON — Sen. Joe Manchin on Tuesday railed against what he called “revenge politics,’’ as liberals in the House and Senate team up with Republicans to oppose his plan to speed permits for natural gas pipelines and other energy projects.

Manchin, a West Virginia Democrat who chairs the Senate Energy Committee, secured a commitment from President Joe Biden and Democratic leaders to include the permitting package in a stopgap government-funding bill in return for his support of a landmark law to curb climate change.
