Rep. Kim voted along with his party line in favor of the impeachment coup against Donald Trump, arguing that the president violated his powers and committed an impeachable offense.[3] Kim was subsequently called out by a 2020 Republican challenger as a phony “moderate” who pulled a bait and switch scheme to get elected.[4]
