Swalwell's Sordid ChiCom Affair
What did Pelosi and Schiff know about Swalwell's spy dalliance?
Given that the Demo-controlled House Select Committee on Intelligence is chaired by the hopelessly dullard West Hollywood dupe, Adam Schiff, it’s understandable that fellow Leftcoaster Eric Swalwell would be his left-hand man.
It would follow then that Swalwell, the flatulent former Demo presidential candidate, now finds himself on the hot seat because of his relationship with ChiCom spy Fang Fang between 2011 and 2015. (Yes “Fang Fang” is the “name name” she originally registered with immigration.)
While Fang ingratiated herself with other notable Democrats, including Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), Swalwell was her easiest mark. She embedded herself with this pathetic narcissist, grooming him by helping fund his 2014 election campaign and having Swalwell hire an intern for his DC office.
In 2015, when Swalwell became the ranking Democrat on the subcommittee with oversight of the CIA, the FBI alerted him by way of a “defensive briefing” about Fang, and predictably, she fled the country. As we noted earlier this week, many have followed her out the door — in fact, in recent months more than 1,000 ChiCom nationals have fled the U.S. fearing arrest. Undoubtedly Fang’s objective was to fill the ChiCom intel gap created when their spy in Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office was discovered – when she chaired the Senate Intelligence Committee under Barack Obama’s regime.
According to Tucker Carlson: “U.S. intelligence officials believe that Fang had a sexual relationship with Eric Swalwell. When [we] asked Swalwell’s office about that Tuesday, his staff replied by saying they couldn’t comment because such information might be ‘classified.’ … Fang apparently pulled in large amounts of money from a variety of sources to help Swalwell get elected to Congress. It’s not entirely clear from where all of that money came. We do know that Fang helped Swalwell secure the support of his district’s Asian-American community, which political analysts have cited as a critical factor in his win in 2012.”
Carlson added, “At every turn, Swalwell has remained a reliable source of Chinese government propaganda. As a member of the House Intelligence Committee, he’s styled himself as an expert at spotting foreign interference in our government. You may remember he spent years accusing President Trump of working for a hostile power. The irony is overwhelming. … When the Russia hoax subsided, as it inevitably did because it was a lie, Swalwell turned his energies to his first love, defending the government of China from all criticism. In March, Swalwell told the rest of us that we are racist if we describe where the coronavirus came from originally.”
Indeed, in March, Swalwell declared that referring to the China virus “as a ‘Chinese’ virus” is “not only misleading the public about a disease” but “stoking racism and xenophobia in our communities.”
Instead of responding to questions, Swalwell is blaming the messenger, insisting that the timing of the left-of-center Axios media revelations about this relationship “should be looked at.” He says, “I hope it is investigated into who leaked this information. At the same time this story was being leaked out is the time that I was working on impeachment on the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees.” Maybe it was Fang Fang!
Given that Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe just issued a dire warning about the threats posed by Red China, the Democrats’ Leftmedia outlets and social media platforms won’t be able to bury the Fang/Swalwell story as they did Joe Biden’s ChiCom influence-peddling-for-profit scheme before the election.
Ominously, former Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell said, “I can tell you without giving away too much intelligence [the Swalwell story] is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the leverage that China is putting on our politicians. There are many, many more.”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) called for Swalwell’s removal from the House Intelligence Committee. McCarthy asks, “Why is [Swalwell] still on the Intel Committee and why is he still a member of Congress? Did Nancy Pelosi know this had transpired when she put him on the Committee? Did Adam Schiff know as chairman of that Committee that [Swalwell] had this problem?”
