awk to supress error message with custom text

After a bash function is run the below file is produced:

out_name.txt tab-delimeted

I am trying to add a condition that will suppress the warning message produced if $2 is
(variantchecker): Intronic position given for a non-genomic reference sequence.,
In addition, that the $1 string "is an intronic variant" is displayed instead of the waring. My 2nd attempt to incorporate these changes is below,
which executes but nothing results. Thank you Smilie.

desired result
NM_003924.3:c.242-1G>A is an intronic variant

while read LINE; do
    awk -F'\t' '$2 == "variantchecker): Intronic position given for a non-genomic reference sequence." {print $1 && "is an intronic variant"}' 2>/dev/null
done < out_name.txt

print $1 && "is an intronic variant" | "cat 1>&2"

Hello cmccabe,

String variantchecker): Intronic position given for a non-genomic reference sequence. will NOT be considered as a 2nd field because you have set the field separator as default which will be space and in above string we have many spaces, so condition with $2=="above_string" will NOT be TRUE.
Could you please try following and let me know if this helps.
awk '/variantchecker): Intronic position given for a non-genomic reference sequence./{print $1 " is an intronic variant."}'   Input_file
