Despite revelations of his connection to a former alleged Chinese spy, California Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell has been named to the House Homeland Security Committee.
Swalwell had been serving on the Intelligence Committee. He was a member of the Homeland Security Committee in his first term, according to >a href="https://www.foxnews.com/politics/pelosi- swalwell-homeland-security-committee">Fox News.
Swalwells assignment to the panel was announced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Some raised eyebrows at the assignment.

In December, reports emerged that Swalwell had been so close to a woman suspected of being a Chinese spy that he was given an FBI briefing to warn him.
Christine Fang, also known as Fang Fang, had been a prominent fundraiser for Swalwells 2014 congressional campaign and reportedly placed an intern in his office.
Fang had cultivated relationships with a number of other politicians, according to Axios, including two unnamed Midwestern mayors she allegedly had sexual relationships with.
In 2015, the FBI gave Swalwell whats known as a defensive briefing alerting him to the fact that they believed Fang was a spy. Swalwell says he cut off contact, although several of his family members remained Facebook friends with Fang until after the story broke.
The reverberations of the revelation were so intense that last month Pelosi and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy were briefed by the FBI about the issue, at McCarthys request, according to NPR.
McCarthy later said the briefing only raised more questions. The one thing that was fundamentally answered: He should not be on Intel.
Labeling China an adversary in many shapes and many forms, McCarthy said there are definitely 200 other Democrats that I know could fill that place long before this individual should be serving.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said that After entangling with this spy for years, Swalwell hypocritically went on to be one of the lead instigators of the Russia collusion hoax and the impeachment sham.
