GOP Leader to Try and Force Swalwell Off Intelligence Committee

House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy is planning to introduce legislation to have Democrat Eric Swalwell removed from the House Intelligence Committee over his connection to an alleged Chinese spy. A recent bombshell report from Axios detailed Swalwell’s relationship with suspected spy Christine Fang who worked to fundraise for Swalwell’s election campaign and also placed at least one intern in his office.

According to reports from The Hill:

“Pelosi just reappointed Eric Swalwell to the Intelligence Committee. Based on the briefing she and I received together, Swalwell should not be on the panel in charge of guarding our nation’s secrets. Next week, I will offer a resolution to remove him from the Intel Committee,” he tweeted on Friday.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) previously said she didn’t have “any concern” about Swalwell’s ability to serve on the Intelligence Committee

Swalwell — who was one of the most vocal critics of former President Trump and played a leading role in the impeachment efforts — has asserted he feels the GOP’s attacks are politically motivated.

McCarthy’s pledge comes as each party announced assignments to the committee, one of the last to formally assemble each Congress. The new Republicans on the committee were Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Trent Kelly (Miss.), Darin LaHood (Ill.) and Markwayne Mullin (Okla.), and Reps. Jason Crowe (Colo.) and Jim Cooper (Tenn.) were the new Democratic additions to the committee.

Republicans have been calling for Swalwell’s removal from the intelligence committee since reports first leaked

So Swalwell gets hoodwinked by a female Chinese spy, using one of the oldest tricks in the book, Swalwell’s own inability to keep it in his pants. Then said spy plants a CCP asset in Swalwell’s office to provide a constant supply of intel to her Party overlords back in Beijing. So, what does Pelosi do to safeguard our most sensitive intelligence secrets? Absolutely nothing! Makes one wonder if Pelosi is on the Chinese Communist Party payroll too.

You can bet Pelosi’s last dollar that she is also on the CCP payroll otherwise she would be in panic mode protecting her ICE CREAM. She has to be eliminated so we can get back to normal in this country.

Politically motivated, politically motivated. When is there going to be anything “we the people” motivated? This is our government? When it all falls in on top of you, please don’t ask why? Praise to the Lord.

Common sense is not one of the strong points of the Democratic party.

Got to get it past Pelosi and common sense is something she doesn’t have.

Frankly, he should not even be in Congress. He needs to be totally removed. He cannot be trusted.
