You won’t believe what he had to say.
Recently on CNN, Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) was questioned about his ties to a Chinese spy.
According to Breitbart, CNN’s Jake Tapper asked, “House Republicans have called for you to step down from the House Intelligence Committee because of this situation. You were informed by the FBI that you had been targeted by an alleged Chinese spy, who I guess is no longer in the country. Have you learned any more about this case since this broke in early December? And can you clarify how much contact you had with this Chinese national who goes by Fang Fang or Christine Fang?”
Swalwell responded, “Jake, this is a 2015 a meeting about a person that I had as a volunteer back in 2012 on the campaign. The FBI has said that I did nothing wrong. Don’t take it from me. There was no wrongdoing. I’ve learned nothing new. And Speaker Pelosi has said she is keeping me on the committee. By the way, Jake, Republicans were briefed on this conduct, that this individual was trying to do with me and many other members of Congress, back in 2015. I think this is retaliation more than anything else.”
