Former Maryland Governor Larry Hogan on Sunday condemned candidates in the GOP presidential camp for rallying around former President Donald Trump after he was charged with 37 felonies related to confidential documents he moved from the White House to his home in the end of his mandate.

« It’s insane that candidates don’t stand up and say these are very serious allegations, we have to take them seriously and, you know, if you’re not going to challenge him, why challenge him? » Hogan, a Republican who declined to enter the presidential race, said during a panel discussion on ABC’s « This Week. »

« There are 11, 12 challengers out there who aren’t challenging that, and they’re, you know, kind of enablers and they’re just making excuses, » Hogan said, noting that former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson — both of whom have openly bashed the former president over the allegation — were left out of that count.
