Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) has been embroiled in controversy for days now. His ‘spy case’ is getting buried by the FBI and Republicans are furious.
“I have asked the FBI for a briefing on Rep. Swalwell’s ties to a reported-spy from China. Twice it has been scheduled. Twice it has been canceled by the FBI,” tweeted House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).
He continued: “Swalwell is a national security liability. This is too important for the FBI to continue to stonewall.” And he is right, of course. The FBI must brief Congress on this disturbing development.
Unsurprisingly, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been practically silent — even in the face of a growing number of Republicans calling for Swalwell to be removed from the House Intelligence Committee.
Swalwell is a liability and he should not have access to high-level U.S. intelligence. Pelosi needs to do the right thing and remove him and allow a full investigation to go forward.
