Eric Swalwell of California has been one of the leading voices among Democrats pushing the Russia collusion conspiracy. The Mueller investigation may be over but Swalwell just can’t let it go.
He recently compared the Mueller report to the 9/11 attacks. Yes, really.
Did Swalwell Really Just Compare Mueller Report to September 11? Yes.
Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who thinks President Trump is a Russian agent (and, yes, I will mention this every day until the primary), has made another farfetched comparison. On Twitter, he put special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation on par with the attack on Pearl Harbor and the September 11 terror attacks by way of condemning Trump’s relationship with Vladimir Putin.
See the tweet below:
Remember that time Pearl Harbor was bombed and FDR called the Emperor of Japan? Or the time the Twin Towers were struck and Bush ringed Osama Bin Laden? No? I don’t either. So why’d @realDonaldTrump call Putin after the Mueller Report was released? #CommanderInCheat

Swalwell got some push back for this:

For those that lost their lives at Pearl Harbor and on 9/11 you have disgraced their memories as a sitting US congressman to make such an absurd analogy.

Sawlwell is running for president in 2020, but few people have noticed.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports:
Eric Swalwell hits 1% in Democratic presidential polls, and he’s thrilled
Presidential candidates wouldn’t normally boast about 1% showings in opinion polls, but for lesser-known Democrats in the 20-member field for 2020 — including East Bay Rep. Eric Swalwell — they’re a big deal.
The reason is that under Democratic National Committee rules, any candidate who can hit the 1% mark in three separate polls or raise money from 65,000 individual donors in 20 states qualifies to take part in the first two televised presidential debates, in June and July.
On Tuesday, Swalwell trumpeted his “breakthrough” 1% poll showing in a third poll, a CNN national survey. Earlier, the Dublin Democrat noted, he reached 1% in a Monmouth University survey in the first caucus state of Iowa and in a University of New Hampshire poll of voters in that first primary state.
He’s clearly just running to raise his national profile.
