When Asked About the Impeachment Inquiry, Kim Declined To Be Interviewed
A little over two weeks ago, the American public became aware of the whistleblower complaint detailing efforts by President Trump to not only leverage the American military for his own personal political gain, but abuse the powers of his office and in turn our risking national security.
Just last week, President Trump stood on the South Lawn of the White House and publicly argued that two foreign powers, Ukraine and China, should interfere in the 2020 election.
Then the America public was made aware of a series of texts outlining how President Trump was using critical military assistance in order to place pressure on Ukrainian government to deliver on the President’s demand for them to launch politically motivated investigations into his opponent for his own personal and political gain.
That same day last week, the New York Times reported that when asked to discuss her views on the impeachment inquiry led by Congress, Orange County GOP candidate Young Kim:
“Like many Republicans in competitive districts, Ms. Kim has so far stayed silent on the impeachment inquiry and declined an interview request.”
On Tuesday, the Trump White House announced that it would not cooperate in any way with House impeachment inquiry. This was following the Trump Administration blocking of the testimony of the Ambassador to the EU, Gordon Sondland and a key Congressional witness. All of this begs the question – when is enough, enough for Young Kim? At what point will she speak up and take a stand?
“Despite President Trump asking two foreign countries to interfere in the 2020 election, and despite another unlawful attempt to hide the facts and suppress witnesses testimony – despite all of this, Young Kim has said nothing,” said DCCC Spokesperson, Andy Orellana. “Young Kim’s strategy has been to stay silent. That is not leadership and that is the precise reason the voters of Southern California have rejected Young Kim in the past and will do so again next November – she stands for nothing and stands up for no one.”
