Susan Collins Defends Vote to Convict Trump: It Was a ‘Culmination of Actions’ that Started ‘Even Before the Election’

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) defended her decision to convict former President Donald Trump for the incitement of insurrection during a Tuesday appearance on WLOB radio with host Ray Richardson, explaining that she voted to convict Trump not just based on his January 6 speech alone but his “culmination of actions which started even before the election occurred.”
