Apparently, the rules don’t apply to Eric Swalwell.
He became compromised by a Chinese Communist Party spy and put America’s sovereignty at risk.
And now he’s gotten off scot-free for this despicable act.
Eric Swalwell sold his country out to the Chinese Communist Party by engaging in inappropriate actions with a Chinese spy.
When this was revealed, it was shocking information about a member of Congress who had just run for President.
And most assumed he would suffer the deserved consequences for putting his country so much at risk.
Afterall, the Chinese Communist Party is America’s most hostile rival abroad. They want to spread their communist ideology around the world and dominate global politics.
U.S. public officials should be spending their time deciding how to defeat the Chicoms toxic ideology, not off gallivanting with their spies.
But Swalwell became intimately involved with a girl named Christine Fang who was spying for the Chinese communists.
As a member of the House Intelligence Committee, Swalwell had access to some of America’s most sensitive intel and Fang targeted Swalwell for this reason.
But now Swalwell will be getting off easy for his harmful actions, with no repercussions whatsoever.
The Hill reports, “The House Ethics Committee concluded a two-year investigation into Rep. Eric Swalwell’s (D-Calif.) interactions with a suspected Chinese spy and determined that it will take no further action.”
“The investigation began after news broke that an alleged Chinese spy, Christine Fang, had worked on Swalwell’s campaign and had targeted up-and-coming politicians in California, including Swalwell.”
Even more infuriating is that Republicans were complicit in letting Swalwell off so easy.
The article reports that Ethics Committee chairman Michael Guest, a Republican from Mississippi, co-wrote a letter to Swalwell saying: “As you are aware, on April 9, 2021, the Committee on Ethics (Committee) informed you that it had determined to investigate allegations raised in the complaint that you may have violated House Rules, laws, or other standards of conduct in connection with your interactions with Ms. Christine Fang. The Committee will take no further action in this matter.”
Republicans control the House. They should be using this power to clean up the government on all sides of the aisle.
Fortunately, after this scandal, it’s highly unlikely Swalwell will ever run for President and it’s likely why he isn’t running for U.S. Senate this year.
