Following the conclusion of the second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, Senator John Hoeven released a statement declaring he was present at each day of the trial. On Thursday, CNN indicated 15 GOP Senators were absent during at least parts of the trial. Forbes also wrote about the growing absence of Senate Republicans.
I attended every day of the impeachment trial and listened carefully. I don't know why someone posted a false image claiming otherwise. The image is wrong – I was at the hearing on Thursday.— Senator John Hoeven (@SenJohnHoeven) February 14, 2021
A graphic including Senator Hoeven was published online including him in the group of being absent. The graph printed his name incorrectly below his photo. The Senator stated today it was not accurate.
