U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., has styled himself as a bipartisan lawmaker in its truest form, but even he is joining many others in his party in suggesting that GOP colleagues who helped foment anger and electoral distrust ahead of the deadly Capitol Hill riot should face consequences.

Specifically, he expressed support for efforts to invoke the 14th Amendment, which allows for the ouster of lawmakers who engage in insurrection, against Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Josh Hawley, R-Mo.

“That should be a consideration,” Manchin said. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
