Sen. Joe Manchin says that Congress should the 14th amendment to remove members from the house who support Donald Trump.
When asked if the amendment should be used to remove Sens. Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz, he said: “They should look, absolutely. That should be a consideration.”
“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.”
Section 3 of the 14th Amendment says no Lawmaker “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Manchin believes that the President is responsible for the violence that broke out at the capitol on the 6th of January after a Trump rally.
“The bottom line is we have to start healing our country and that’s not giving the president or any of his accomplices a pass at all. I think there’s going to be the judicial system very much involved in this investigation,” he said.
“There could be criminal charges coming to many people, including the president even if they’ve broken the law and I think all that will come due. But you can’t just jump to conclusions and expedite something from a political position because all it does is further entrenches the people who believe one way or the other.”
