Swalwell Just the Tip of Dems’ China Iceberg

Speaker Nancy Pelosi appears loath to raise any resistance against Beijing. Paging Joe Biden.

Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) should be classified as persona non grata, asserted House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy following the bombshell revelation that Swalwell for years was targeted and potentially compromised via an almost certainly sexual relationship by Chinese spy Christine Fang, or Fang Fang. Furthermore, Swalwell has remained mum over the scandal, refusing to answer reporters the multiples times they’ve raised questions.

“No one that was in that room could walk out and say Eric Swalwell should be on the intel committee,” McCarthy argued. “The one answer that I got out of that briefing was there is no way Eric Swalwell should continue to serve on the intel committee.”

McCarthy also pointed out the abject hypocrisy displayed by Democrat leadership as it attacks President Donald Trump over the Russia hoax while Swalwell was given the green light to oversee the CIA. “And that exact same year when the FBI came to brief the Intel Committee because they were concerned of what they saw, he gets put as the ranking Democrat over the CIA,” McCarthy said. “I do not understand how this has continued this long. … And I would never, never allow him on that committee.”

So, despite likely knowing Swalwell’s compromised status, why did Nancy Pelosi still put him on Intel? As Gary Bauer asks, “Does Eric Swalwell have something on Nancy Pelosi?” Or maybe the better question is, what does China have on Pelosi? She certainly seems to be quite favorable toward Beijing — to the point of gutting provisions within the Senate’s National Defense Authorization Act that withheld funding from the Beijing-backed Confucius Institutes on U.S. college campuses. As Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) stated, “Communist China is still buying influence on U.S. campuses. Yet Democrats gutted an NDAA amendment that would protect academic freedom and give U.S. colleges control over what Confucius Institutes teach on our soil.”

Representative Jim Banks (R-IN) contends, “Who could be surprised by Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to crack down on China’s infiltration of universities? She won’t even crack down on Chinese Communist infiltration of the Democratic Party. Speaker Pelosi only cares about national security if it furthers her narrow political interests, and again and again, those interests align with Chairman Xi’s.”

Swalwell, Pelosi, Joe Biden… Just how much of the Democrat Party has been bought by China?
