China Threat – Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell Poses ‘Unacceptable National Security Risk’ on House Intelligence Committee

Top Republican lawmakers are demanding that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi remove Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell from the House Intelligence Committee due to his prior relationship with Chinese spy Fang Fang (AKA ‘Bang Bang’ for her tactic of having sex with her targets).

As I wrote earlier, Swalwell was compromised by Fang between 2013 and 2015 when they developed a close relationship after she fundraised for him and even placed an intern in his office. In my piece, I noted that due to this relationship with a Chinese spy, Swalwell should be removed from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI).

As Axios reported, Swalwell and Fang were so close that in 2015, “amid a widening counterintelligence probe, federal investigators became so alarmed by Fang’s behavior and activities that … they alerted Swalwell to their concerns — giving him what is known as a defensive briefing.”

Once this issue finally became publicly known after the Axios report last week, Swalwell did not deny the facts, but deflected and blamed Trump for it now becoming an issue, stating last Tuesday:

I’ve been a critic of the president. I’ve spoken out against him. I was on both committees that worked to impeach him. The timing feels like that should be looked at.

But now, in a letter to Pelosi sent yesterday, 17 House Republicans state that Swalwell poses an “unacceptable national security risk,” explaining that, “Rep. Swalwell withheld information for five years from the House Intelligence Committee about an ongoing Chinese espionage operation targeted at him and his own colleagues.”

The lawmakers added:

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.

The letter was signed by House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the second and third-highest ranking House Republicans.

Prior to this letter, Pelosi told reporters last week, “I don’t have any concern about Mr. Swalwell.” But that is the wrong answer.

It is time for Pelosi to do the right thing for American national security and remove Swalwell from the House Intelligence Committee.

Swalwell poses an ‘unacceptable national security risk.’

I would say Swalwell is somewhat treasonous. We should dress him in orange and fly him first class to Gitmo!!!!

Talk, talk, talk, that’s all Congressional investigations and hearings amount to. Nobody ever gets charged, much less goes to prison as a result. No wonder none of guilty even try to hide their crimes and some even brag about it.

Attention all real American Citizens. If you still want to be a free Nation and a free people then we must stop these evil Democrats and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris from taking away our freedom by supporting David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler by supporting them to win the Georgia Senate and if they win we will prevent Biden and Harris from doing doing anything at all and their hands will be tied because we do have Congress Control and God willing if Kelly Loeffler and David Purdue win we will have really won even if they are sitting in the White House. So Please send as much as you can to support our last hope for our American Freedom.

It is time WE THE PEOLE see justice done in this country. We are tired of seeing criminals; most of whom are from the democrat party, getting away with all of these treasonous acts. Examples MUST BE MADE of these anti-American traitors.

It’s about time someone in the republican party stood up and actually said something to the head of the Pelosi Crime Family Syndicate. She’s probably in for 10%. Fang Fang is back in China slaving in a forced labor camp by her request after this escapade with Smallwell..

I have said before that most of them could not pass a real background check for a
Security Clearance. That should be the first thing to happen before they could run for any office of the U.S. Government. A real background check.

The Pig is rooting around her mud hole looking for more ice cream and money for her Blue States. She loves China, went to China Town while the Virus was raging.

I hear Disney is investing in China, so is Apple, so is Microsoft, so is the pharmaceutical industry, and the Biden’s and many, many more. Got the picture.? It is all about money. None of them care about your needs except Donald J Trump who they have lied about, censored, and stolen from. He won the election, but will we allow the no good mercenary thieves to get away with it? We simply say no to Biden, and the Forty Thieves, or is that maybe, four hundred thieves?

The China Connection Se it at your nearest theater. It details how the News Media along with Big Tech arranged to join China in stealing the Oval Office from Donald J Trump, their nemesis, and chief adversary. So Biden and the Forty Thieves will soon be showing in a theater near your home town. Title may be subject for change, like maybe Biden and the Four Hundred Thieves? Merry Christmas. Better say it now while you still can!

It is ridiculous and unacceptable to think we have to ask Pelosi to get rid of that traitor, this woman is just as dangerous as Swalwell she should have pull him out immediately and he should resign . Pelosi has become a liability not only to the DemocRATS but to our nation.
