The GOP is asking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to remove Eric Swalwell (D-CA) from the House Intelligence Committee after a recent report implicated him in a salacious spy scandal.
According to Breitbart, top Republicans in the House wrote Pelosi a letter that stated, in part:
Because of Rep. Swalwell’s position on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, his close interactions with Chinese intelligence services, however unintentional they may be, are an unacceptable national security risk. HPSCI handles some of the most sensitive information our government possesses — information critical to our national defense. As such, we urge you to immediately remove Rep. Swalwell from his position on the House Intelligence Committee.
Republicans also accused Swalwell of hiding his involvement with a suspected Chinese spy from the Intel panel for five years.
This is the state of the modern Democratic Party: spend millions going after a hoax to implicate President Donald Trump, but turn a blind eye to the guy in your own backyard who is dallying with communist spies.
