House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is calling on Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) to be removed from Congress following reports that he had been targeted by a Chinese spy.
A bombshell Axios report on Tuesday indicated that a woman by the name of Christine Fang “took part in fundraising activity for Swalwell’s 2014 re-election campaign” and that she interacted with the Congressman “at multiple events over the course of several years.”
Fang had served as a Chinese Intelligence operative with China’s Ministry of State Security.
Officials do not allege any of the fundraising was illegal, but they do indicate the alleged Chinese spy was able to place an intern with Swalwell’s office.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson added to the scandal by alleging during his broadcast that “U.S. intelligence officials believe that Fang had a sexual relationship with” Swalwell.
That assertion has not been proven, but Carlson adds that his staff asked the Congressman for comment on the matter, but were told that his staff “couldn’t comment on whether or not Swawell had a sexual relationship with Fang because that information might be quote, ‘classified.'”
Swalwell, thus far, has not been accused of any wrongdoing by any intelligence officials.
McCarthy appeared with Fox News host Laura Ingraham to discuss the latest information on the Eric Swalwell/Chinese Spy story.
“This is only the tip of the iceberg because remember what we’re hearing,” he explained. “These are Chinese spies that go down to the level of a mayor, they court and help a city councilmember become a congressman, this congressman now gets on the Intel Committee.”
McCarthy said Swalwell should not only be removed from the committee, but he should be removed from Congress altogether.
“Remember what Swalwell said, he accused the president of everything that he did, by lying to the American public and sitting on the Intel Committee,” he said, referring to the California Democrat’s role in promoting a Russia collusion conspiracy against President Trump.
“Not only should he be removed from the Intel, he should be removed from Congress as well,” McCarthy insisted.
Eric Swalwell did what any self-respecting Democrat would do when caught in a relationship – at minimum, professionally – with a Chinese Spy.
He blamed it on the President.
“I’ve been a critic of the president. I’ve spoken out against him. I was on both committees that worked to impeach him,” Swalwell said in an interview on Tuesday. “The timing feels like that should be looked at.”
Come on, be honest. Did anybody even remember Eric Swalwell existed prior to this Chinese spy report?
And does anybody honestly believe President Trump, currently battling the 2020 election results on multiple fronts across multiple states, stopped what he was doing to focus on whether or not a California Democrat was hanging out with Chinese women years ago?
Swalwell refused to address the relationship he had with Fang according to a Politico report.
