“One thing I know for sure — I had questions about whether he should. That’s the one question that was answered, he should not be on Intel”
Despite being allegedly compromised by a spy from China, Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) is still serving on the House Intelligence Committee for some reason.
Do you think Russia-crazed Congress members like Adam Schiff or even Nancy Pelosi would allow this to go on if Swalwell was a Republican? What happened to all the concern about threats to our democracy?
Congressman Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who is also the House Minority Leader, has now been briefed on the Swalwell situation by the FBI, and he says Swalwell needs to be removed from the Intel Committee.

Kevin McCarthy receives FBI briefing on Eric Swalwell’s relationship with a Chinese spy, and demands he be cut from Intel Committee
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) demanded that Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell (Calif.) be removed from the House Intelligence Committee after receiving an FBI briefing on his former relationship with a Chinese spy.
Swalwell has met with a chorus of condemnation after a report revealed that he had been in a personal relationship with a woman federal investigators believed to be a Chinese espionage agent.
The California Democrat cut ties with the woman, named Christine Fang, after receiving a “defensive briefing” by investigators in 2015.
However, Republican lawmakers and other critics of Swalwell have used the report to raise doubt about whether the congressman could be compromised by that former relationship.
McCarthy commented to reporters after the briefing:
“One thing I know for sure — I had questions about whether he should. That’s the one question that was answered, he should not be on Intel,” he said.
He also made his position clear in this tweet:
I had a briefing from the FBI today to learn more about Eric Swalwell’s ties to a reported-spy from China, and one thing is now crystal clear:
Swalwell should no longer be on the Intel Committee.

Naturally, because Swalwell is a Democrat, he is getting plenty of cover from the media. The New York Times has basically blacked out the story.

New York Times Continues Swalwell Blackout Exposing Relationship With Chinese Spy
After spending months spilling ink to delegitimize stories implicating President-elect Joe Biden in his son’s corrupt overseas business dealings, the New York Times has found a new favorite Democrat to protect.
As of this writing Monday morning, the nation’s most influential newspaper — boasting more than 7 million subscribers — has yet to dedicate a single article or news item to the compromising revelations surrounding Democratic House Intelligence Committee member Eric Swalwell cultivating a relationship with a Chinese spy…
Swalwell, a primary culprit in weaponizing his role on the Intelligence Committee to perpetuate the Russia hoax — alongside California colleague Adam Schiff, who chairs the committee — has continued to deny any wrongdoing and has reverted a favorite Democratic Party narrative of collusion accusing Trump of leaking the story to Axios.
When he’s not deflecting by trying to blame Trump, Swalwell is tweeting idiocy like this:
How many people did Tucker Carlson try and kill tonight?

Democrats spent three years investigating a Russia hoax. Swalwell’s involvement with a spy from China is real. He should not be serving on the Intel Committee.DONATE
