In an interview with NPR, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said he stood by his characterization earlier this summer that his colleague Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) sabotaged President Biden’s agenda. “I don’t think it’s debatable,” he said, adding that that he felt Manchin had “his own agenda” when negotiating with the administration over policy goals. Sanders told NPR he would support a reelection bid from President Biden, and spoke about his hopes for getting more progressives elected to Congress in November’s midterms.

This episode: White House correspondent Asma Khalid, congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell, and national political correspondent Mara Liasson.
