Gov. Larry Hogan beats impeachment attempt by Trump-aligned Republican

March 4, 2022

In less than five minutes, Maryland lawmakers on Thursday unanimously rejected impeaching Gov. Larry Hogan. A fellow Republican and political opponent of Hogan had accused the governor of wide-ranging misdeeds including: overstepping his authority with pandemic restrictions, inappropriately welcoming refugees, denying access to controversial covid-19 treatments and flouting state law by using disappearing-message apps. Del. Daniel L. Cox (R-Frederick), a Donald Trump-aligned candidate for governor, had four minutes to make his case. Without debate, the House Rules and Executive Nominations Committee summarily dismissed it.
