Pelosi Selects Swalwell for Homeland Security Committee, Despite Extremely Questionable Past

By Jack Davis

Published January 15, 2021 at 8:14am

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=" swalwell-homeland-security-committee">Fox News.

Swalwell’s assignment to the panel was announced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Some raised eyebrows at the assignment. 752? ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E135001910505159 4752%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.westernjourna extremely-questionable-past%2F ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E135007138235752 8578%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.westernjourna extremely-questionable-past%2F

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 Swalwell’s 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 what’s 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 McCarthy’s 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.”

Great, a ChiCom asset. It just keep getting better and better.

Figured out where this is going yet, 4um?

China already owns us by and thru U.S. Treasury debt.

We have financed our own demise and that of future generations much the same way as the ancient Roman Empire did.

They would shave bits of precious metals from coinage to make the metals go further.

Here they have debased the coinage and monetized the debt by the use of FRNs and Debt Notes sold to foreign nations in exchange for goods. ;)

Swalwell has been anointed to Homeland Insecurity. And he follows in the footsteps of such stalwarts as Michael Chertoff and Tom Ridge. :-/
