Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Young Kim (CA-39) released the following statement on the House of Representatives’ vote to call on Vice President Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment:

“The violence that our nation witnessed on Wednesday was abhorrent and resulted in an assault on law enforcement, lives lost and many more put in danger. The president also played a role in misleading many Americans to believe that the outcome of the election could change on January 6th, when that simply was not true,” said Rep. Kim. “However, I took an oath last week to support and defend the Constitution. In our system of government, ultimately the decision to invoke the 25th Amendment lies with the Vice President and the Cabinet, not Congress.”

“I tested negative again for COVID-19 after quarantining for five days after my potential exposure last Wednesday and will continue to vote in a safe, socially-distanced manner under the guidance of the Attending Physician and Sergeant at Arms,” Kim added.
