ANNAPOLIS — Gov. Larry Hogan said he would have voted to convict former President Donald Trump if he was in the Senate.
Hogan appeared on CNN's 'State of the Union' Sunday morning standing by the seven Republican senators that voted to impeach Trump.
“I’m proud of those folks who did take that decision and put the country ahead of party or personal affection," Hogan said.
This comes a day after Trump was acquitted by the US Senate on Saturday on an article of impeachment that he incited the deadly US Capitol insurrection on Jan. 6.
57 senators voted in favor of conviction, but a conviction needed 67 votes. Seven Republicans joined all 50 Democrats in voting to convict Trump.
Republican Sens. Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse and Pat Toomey voted in favor of convicting Trump.
