McCarthy on Swalwell: ‘Not Only Should He Be Removed’ From Intel Committee. ‘He Should Be Removed From Congress, As Well’
House minority leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) during an appearance on Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show “The Ingraham Angle” Tuesday night made a bold statement saying that he thinks Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA), a.k.a. Sir Fartsalot, should be removed from the House Intelligence Committee over his connections to Chinese spies, including having a Chinese spy plant a person onto the congressman’s staff.
McCarthy said that members of the Intelligence Committee “are only selected for the Intel. Committee by the leaders of their party, meaning Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Pelosi is one of the Gang of Eight, along with myself. Did Nancy Pelosi know this had transpired when she put him on the committee? We have our Sen., Dianne Feinstein, for two decades, the personal assistant, that hear all the private phone calls in the car and others, a Chinese spy. Why did the Democrats pull out of the bipartisan China task force I had set up? Why did Speaker Pelosi pull out of that? Why have they denied certain bills that would hold China accountable, that have passed the Senate, not come to the floor? Why do they focus on Silicon Valley members of Congress? Why is he still on the Intel. Committee? Why is he still a member of Congress? Did Adam Schiff know, as chairman of that committee, that he had this problem?”
“This is only the tip of the iceberg because remember what we’re hearing. These are Chinese spies that go down to the level of a mayor,” McCarthy told Ingraham.
“China helps a city council member become a congressman. This congressman now gets on the intel committee. They are only selected from the intel committee by the leaders of their party meaning Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Pelosi is one of the Gang of Eight, along with myself,” McCarthy said.
On Wednesday, McCarthy, responding to a report of a Chinese spy or spies infiltrating Congress, said Swalwell was “so preoccupied with going after President Trump” that he was not “protecting the USA from bad actors.”
The most dangerous place to be was between Swalwell and a news camera for over two years. The California congressman attacked President Trump every chance he got over the phony Russia collusion hoax, and here he had a serious problem with his own collusion with a Chinese spy.
“Did Nancy Pelosi know this had transpired when she put him on the committee?” he asked.
Being one of several, and maybe more, politicians targeted by a large Chinese sly ring, Swalwell was briefed on the foreign interference by the Chinese spy that went on around him, and he still focused on Russia Russia Russia against President Trump and his administration. Some might think he did that to take any focus off of his own real-world spy problems.
The Axios website did a random act of journalism and reported that Fang Fang or Christine Fang, a Chinese national, targeted up-and-coming local politicians, including Swalwell. It was a really good job of actual journalism, so good for them.
Past and current intelligence officials told Axios that Fang used a lot of opportunities to get on the inside for intelligence that would wield political power, including rallies, fundraising and networking, and even romantic relationships to nail (pun intended) at least two Midwestern mayors.
McCarthy also questioned why the Democrats went for “pulling out of the bipartisan China task force that he had set up and rejecting the bills that were holding China accountable that had passed the Senate.” Could it be because they knew they had members who were compromised and Pelosi and Schumer didn’t want that advertised? For goodness’ sake half the country believes Joe Biden is in the back pocket of the Communist Chinese Party.
“Why do they focus on Silicon Valley members of Congress? Why is he still on the intel let alone why is he still a member of congress? Did Adam Schiff, D-Calif., know as chairman of that committee that he had this problem? Remember what the intel committee gets: information that no other members are able to see and remember what this member did. He was so preoccupied going after this president, he wasn’t protecting our country from bad actors. When he questioned Comey, he literally set up the questionnaire of what happened to him.”
McCarthy then laid down the gauntlet and said, “Not only should he be removed from the Intel [Committee]. He should be removed from Congress, as well.”
I bet if we dug deeper into this we’d find a whole lot more members of Congress who are compromised. Yeah, I bet Nancy Pelosi will get right on that. <sarcasm>
