Sen. Joe Manchin criticized as "uncalled for" the slam by fellow Democrat Rep. John Lewis of the legitimacy of Donald Trump's presidential election.

In an interview Sunday on CBS News' "Face The Nation," the West Virginia Democrat said he has "the utmost respect" for the civil rights veteran.

"He's an icon, if you will, and we all have the most respect for him," Manchin said. "I just think that was uncalled for. I just wish that rhetoric would tone down from both back and forth."

Manchin warned Russia's President Vladimir Putin will take advantage if he sees "this bickering going on back and forth."

"That's what we have to stop," he said. "We're bigger than this, and we're going to show them we're not going to change and not going to alter how we work and function as Congress, as a government and the United States of America."
