House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is trying to have Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) removed from the House Intelligence Committee after discovering that Swalwell was in a relationship with a suspected Chinese spy.
McCarthy announced the decision on Friday, saying, “Pelosi just reappointed Eric Swalwell to the Intelligence Committee. Based on the briefing she and I received together, Swalwell should not be on the panel in charge of guarding our nation’s secrets. Next week, I will offer a resolution to remove him from the Intel Committee.”
Christine Fang, who allegedly works for China’s main civilian spy agency, developed extensive ties with Swalwell under the agency’s directive to target “up-and-coming local politicians in the Bay Area and across the country who had the potential to make it big on the national stage.”
The operation began in 2011, and back then, Swalwell was certainly a nobody and, therefore, a perfect target for Fang. Fast forward a decade, and now Swalwell is on a critical community guarding our nation’s secrets.
Furthermore, Swalwell’s profile has become so influential that he even attempted a presidential run. The fact is that he is compromised and needs to be handled appropriately.
The refusal of the Democrat party to do with Swalwell is shocking considering how they harrassed Donald Trump over everything Russia. Now they are protecting a politician who a Chinese spy has compromised.
