A Republican House challenger slammed Rep. Andy Kim over his backing of articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
“This impeachment is a total sham witch hunt contrived and executed to go against the will of the American people and our legitimately elected president who has built the best economy in our lifetime,” Barnegat Township Deputy Mayor John Novak said.
Kim on Monday said he would support two articles of impeachment against Trump. They accuse the president of obstructing congressional probes into his conduct and of abusing his office for personal gain.
Trump sought to coerce Ukraine into investigating the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, a chief political opponent, by withholding congressionally-approved military aid to the country.
The House is set to vote on the articles tomorrow.
“The progressive socialists can’t beat him at the ballot box, so they used behind the scenes basement procedures to conjure up fake allegations and accusations that change daily,” Novak said. “Progressive-Socialist Andy Kim is going to lose miserably because of his anti-Trump, Pelosi-following support of this sham.”
