Pelosi’s Trump Impeachment Managers Include Rep. Eric Swalwell
Picking the snide congressman who also had connections to a Chinese spy really shows the integrity of the impeachment trial.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi named nine managers to lead President Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial.
The list includes Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA), who had a recent controversy involving a Chinese spy, and Rep. Jamie Raskin (MD), who objected to certifying the 2016 election.
Pelosi wrote: “Tonight, I have the solemn privilege of naming the Managers of the impeachment trial of Donald Trump. It is their constitutional and patriotic duty to present the case for the President’s impeachment and removal. They will do so guided by their great love of country, determination to protect our democracy and loyalty to our oath to the Constitution. Our Managers will honor their duty to defend democracy For The People with great solemnity, prayerfulness and urgency.”
Speaker Pelosi names impeachment managers:
* @RepRaskin, Lead Manager
* Rep. @DavidCicilline
* Rep. @JoaquinCastrotx
* Rep. @TedLieu
* Rep. @StaceyPlaskett
* Rep. @JoeNeguse
* Rep. @MadeleineDean

Pelosi picked Raskin as lead manager. He filed the article of impeachment against Trump a few days ago. Ted Lieu and David Cicilline also authored the resolution.
Swalwell is an interesting pick since Axios dropped a report in December about how a Chinese spy targeted him and other California politicians.
Christine Fang befriended Swalwell in 2011 after disguising herself as an exchange student. She helped him raise money but also formed a close and personal bond with him. She managed to become an intern in his DC office.
The FBI flagged her in 2015. Agents notified Swalwell, and he cut off ties.
However, his brother and father remained Facebook friends with her until the Axios report.
Swalwell, who is as smug and gross as they come, tried to blame Trump for the report. Axios swiftly shot that down since he knew in 2019 the outlet was working on the story.
It doesn’t help that Swalwell referred to Republican Sens. Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and others as the Coup Klux Klan after the Capitol Hill Riots. So mature.
EVIDENCE: This Coup Klux Klan member gave her terrorist friends the location of a woman second in line to the presidency during an attack on the Capitol. https://t.co/pjuaUTBJLB

Who should be expelled from Congress for inciting the attack on the Capitol? #CoupKluxKlan

Jonathan Turley suggested Pelosi picked Swalwell as “part of a rehabilitation campaign.”
The Swalwell selection is clearly part of a rehabilitation campaign. Swalwell remained secluded as the many in the media refused to carry or investigate the story. Now Pelosi will use the impeachment as a way for Swalwell to reemerge from seclusion. https://t.co/2EuvG6pN8R

He also pointed out other nonsense Swalwell has pushed since Trump came into office:
Usually a speaker selects House managers to reinforce the credibility and integrity of the case against a president. Even before the current scandal, Swalwell was viewed as a member who was a raw partisan. Last year, it was revealed that (despite long denials) the FBI did send an agent to report on his observations within the Trump campaign. As I discussed in a column, Democratic members spent years mocking allegations that there was any spying or surveillance of Trump or his campaign by the FBI. That was just a conspiracy theory. Now however there is proof that the FBI used a briefing in August 2016 of then candidate Trump to gather information for “Crossfire Hurricane,” the Russia investigation. It turns out that it did not really matter after all and Rep. Eric Swalwell did not miss a step. Swalwell declared that such targeting of the opposing party and its leading presidential candidate was “the right thing to do.” That’s it. A conspiracy theory suddenly becomes a commendable act.
Previously, Swalwell also declared that if President Donald Trump refused to give Congress the documents and witnesses that it has demanded, he is clearly guilty of all charged offenses. Swalwell declared “We can only conclude that you’re guilty.”

to the full extent allowed by law.
Well, that’s an inspired choice — no, check that — Soviet-inspired choice.
They’ve really baring theirFang Fang’s at Trump!
Looks like the Chicoms are in charge now.
To be fair, where are you gonna find a Democrat that isn’t in bed with China?
Good to know that the CCP is on board to impeach Trump.
With apologies to all preteens, I must ask. How old is this guy, ten?
White Democrat privilege…you gets to fuck a Chinese spy and you gets promoted.
Our first court approved coup: first, steal the election, second destroy the opposition, and finally, destroy the nation.
Didn’t the fang fang happen in 2015? I was under the impression as soon as he was told of the lady in questions potential of being a spy he cut of communication with her?
He is reported to have. You still have a member of the leadership of our nation who is charged with oversight of the intelligence community sleeping with a freakin spy. Imagine being that gullible. Shouldn’t we have leaders who don’t get honeypot’d? He is either inestimably stupid or corrupt. Either one of those should prohibit him from a leadership position in any place other than Clown World. Honk Honk.
Seems a double standard to me, Guilliani is know to be associated with a Russian Agent and no one seems to care about that.
Is Giuliani on the House Intelligence Committee. You were the same guys wanting the election overturned over Trump’s kid having a meeting with a Russian: he wasn’t even screwing her.
And what did info did Swalwell give up when he was banging Fang Fang.
Apples and oranges. Giuliani is not a member of Congress nor a member of the HIC and, therefor, have access to highly classified US intelligence information.
Fair point although he is part of Trump’s inner circle so not great from that point of view. Surely his views are tainted by association?
Fang Fang fled the country, but the family stayed in touch until very recently
How weird is that, thanks for the link
The Dim capacity for bearing cognitive dissonance is truly impressive.
They’re pushing these “CoupKluxKlan” memes… are they too fucking retarded and historically ignorant to understand that the Klan was an arm of their own party? That their president elect eulogized a former “Grand Wizard” of the KKK?
They continue to cry “collusion!” yet they choose a farting idiot who licked Winnie The Pooh’s Honeypot as a “manager” of this farce?
And they run around screeching “sedition” yet another manager is a communist who literally grew up on the knees of “reconquista” terrorists who aim to overthrow the US government in southern states and “return” them to Mexico.
What a pathetic joke.
What makes me upset? Trump handed the Republicans a huge gift, and they threw it out with the wrapping paper. Screw ’em….throw the bums out, but we now know that elections are bogus. Time for the Second Amendment solution.
Right now that would be just the cherry on top of the sh-t sundae the Left is forcing us to deal with. They are already manufacturing such another false flag.
You can’t find a liberal not on the take.
That’s a gross misrepresentation. Because other people disagree with you doesn’t make them the enemy.
Staging a coup does.
It appears Madam Speaker also chose someone who comes within the Dems’ definition of a traitor (ie, challenging the EC result):
You are getting led down the garden path, again.
The Dems know that Impeachment is not going to be meaningful. And, just as with the previous attempt, it is all a distraction. The idea is to distract people from the 800# gorilla in the room, election fraud and the possibility that Trump actually won reelection. Once Biden is inaugurated, there is no court in the land which will reverse the situation and order Trump installed in his place. There will be no legal recourse available and everyone in a position of authority will simply shrug and say, sorry, it is too late to change things now.
When Pelosi cares enough to send the “B” Team on a suicide mission, she picks Fartwell and Raskin.
Nadler and Schiff were miserable failures the last time, they were an embarrassment to all.
Ahhh the Spy Who Fanged me is going to be an impeachment manager. Were the Ringling Bros. clowns unavailable for the job?
He can read the script but don’t actually ask him to think. His lack of grey matter leaves him wanting.
If you have watched much of the tv coverage in the House chambers you will see Swalwell sitting in a seat a row or two behind whatever democrat is speaking. Not sure why he picked that exact location, he is certainly getting a lot of camera time without saying or doing anything. In a time when you may want to stay out of public view you place yourself in a very visible location.
One joke walks into a bar and appoints another joke.
When asked how he voted – Swallows-well said “Fang Fang”.
