Remove Democrat Congressman Linked to Chinese Spy from Intelligence Committee, Minority Leader Says

Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell of California last year was linked to a suspected Chinese spy named Fang Fang. The attractive woman who reportedly had sexual or romantic relationships with multiple elected officials, including at least two Midwestern mayors, helped raise money for Swalwell’s campaign and placed one or more interns in Swalwell’s office. 

I wrote about this here, here, and here.

I also noted that due to his office being penetrated by a Chinese intelligence operative, he should be removed from the House Intelligence Committee where Speaker Nancy Pelosi had placed him. Pelosi recently reappointed  Swalwell to the Committee.

However, as previously noted, Swalwell:

didn’t just receive a seat on the committee, he was selected to be the senior Democrat on the Committee’s Subcommittee on the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The press release from Swalwell’s office pointed out that: “This newly established subcommittee is responsible for the oversight, policy, activities, and budget of the CIA.”

House Republicans have also said that somebody so seriously compromised by a foreign adversary should not remain on the critical intelligence panel. And now House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has filed a resolution aimed at removing the Democrat lawmaker from the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

The two-page resolution tweeted by Mike Emanuel of Fox News says Swalwell “has not denied public reporting that a suspected Chinese intelligence operative helped raise money for Representative Swalwell’s political campaigns” and “other troublesome elements of public reporting.”

 

McCarthy’s resolution also cites the House rule that “A Member… of the House shall behave at all times in a manner that shall reflect creditably on the House.” Elected officials are not required to pass security background screenings when placed on sensitive committees handling classified intelligence or national security information.

However, to make his point, McCarthy also tweeted an image of Section 19 of the SF-86 form for obtaining a security clearance in the private sector which asks if the person applying for clearance has had a relationship with any “foreign national affiliated with a foreign government, military, security, defense industry or intelligence service.”

McCarthy said in the Tweet: “Given the nature of Swalwell’s relationship with a reported Chinese spy, he wouldn’t qualify. Why is he still on the Intel Committee?”

 

Swalwell responded to McCarthy’s resolution accusing the GOP leader of “the New McCarthyism,” while tarring the GOP minority Leader as a QAnon supporter.

Swalwell tweeted:

Meet the New McCarthyism. Multiple sentences in resolution state ‘Swalwell has not denied…Yet fails to include multiple FBI statements of ‘no wrongdoing’ and did nothing but ‘cooperate.’ All of this to deflect from @GOPLeader’s support for QAnon.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman, fellow California Democrat Adam Schiff, also defended Swalwell in a letter to colleagues. He said:

I have full confidence in Congressman Swalwell’s fitness to continue to serve as an exemplary member of the Intelligence Committee with all of the trust that entails. I will oppose this transparently political effort.

The last four/five administrations were the “same difference” or were you not paying attention. Assuredly NO honest patriot will ever get another crack at the job…and ALL the evidence of “The Fraud” would have disappeared…and maybe the 2nd too…and there will be nothing anyone can do about it…it WILL be to late…

It is tough enough to fight the many adversaries without the country without fighting their those who abet them inside the country. Swallwell if he was a true Patriot would at the very least resign from the committee. Better yet resign from Congress.

He created so much trouble for President Trump –all fake accusations and Swalwell knew full well that he was spreading lies to damage the office of the President.. He even made up a false statement and broadcast it pretending to be the President. I am wondering if He has some damaging information on Pelosi as she seems so frantic when the other legislators say and demand that he be dismissed from the House of Representatives. Maybe he is related to her??? A person of such low morals only besmirches the House of Representatives and increases the low moral standards that are acceptable in the H. of R.

So my question to all American Conservatives is:
Why are the two leading papers in America essentially mouth pieces for the Political Left, the Wa Po and the NYT, as are the alphabet soup of news channels ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN.

When all of American Conservative voters start getting their news from Fox, their likely more conservative local papers, the budgets, and influence of these “news outlets” would definitely shrink.

Barbed razor wire around the capitol, Soldiers having to be screened before protecting the capitol to make sure they’re not Trump supporters and a congressman sleeping with the enemy is put on our, OUR, Intelligence Committee? And they were worried about Mrs. Trump’s clearance. And all this time I thought we might have a problem deciding which rest room Hillary was going to vie for whenever anyone finally puts her in prison for her collusion with foreign agents back in the 2016 election.

Well, it sounds like Swalwell has drank of the “Poison Kool Aid” that eats away at your moral fiber…and he has transformed. I truly wonder how much “Confidential” info his Chinese girlfriend snuck out of him and who she gave that info?
Sorry Swalwell. You have crossed the line and no one TRUSTS you any more. You did that to yourself dude…all by yourself! Hey, maybe your Chinese Agent girl friend would like a swig of your Kool Aid too?

Oh sure just because this guy slept with a Known Communist Chines Party Spy and just because he got one of her Communist Chines Party friends a job on his staff who had access to all of his mail and other papers; you people think that he should be kicked out of the House.

Swalwell has been compromised sleeping with a Communist Chinese spy, and allowing her to escape to China. This is Treason and Swalwell should be arrested for collaborating with the enemy! The US Marshall’s office we believe hasn’t be compromised. They engage in the arrest of any corrupt politician, top FBI officials DOJ officials who are corrupt. No one has been held accountable for the election fraud, DNC on a fake dossier against the President Trump. The Supreme Court has also been compromised. It begins with Justice Roberts. It’s the largest failure of our country’s history. The US Marshall’s office and 2/3rd of the military should be deputized to take over this 3rd world country takeover.

I would say that Nancy put a “skunk in the henhouse” couldn’t say fox, because he got caught sleeping with the spy, so he wasn’t that Sly.
But, doesn’t it say that Nancy wasn’t thinking of our national security when she put him on the committee??
