This week we learned that Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell of California was taken by a spy from China who allegedly infiltrated his office and even raised money for his campaign.
This is the same Eric Sawlwell who has spent the last four years accusing Trump of being an agent of Russia. The same Eric Swalwell who still sits on the House Intelligence Committee for some reason.
Now that he has come under scrutiny over this scandal, Swalwell is using the only excuse he ever has for anything.
It’s Trump’s fault!
The Blaze reports:
Rep. Eric Swalwell responds to Chinese spy story by blaming President Trump
Speaking with Politico Tuesday night, Swalwell, who is now a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said he first became aware that Axios was looking into Fang’s activities in July 2019 as he was ending his brief run in the Democratic presidential primary.
The California Democrat, who has been one of the most outspoken lawmakers pushing the Trump-Russia collusion narrative, then suggested that President Donald Trump might be behind the story.
“I’ve been a critic of the president. I’ve spoken out against him. I was on both committees that worked to impeach him,” Swalwell said in an interview on Tuesday. “The timing feels like that should be looked at.”
“What it appears though that this person — as the story reports — was unsuccessful in whatever they were trying to do,” he added. “But if intelligence officials are trying to weaponize someone’s cooperation, they are essentially seeking to do what this person was not able to do, which is to try and discredit someone.”
Who does this moron think he’s fooling?

The Swalwell news basically just confirms that everything the Democrats were going after Trump for, they were actually just doing themselves.

Rep. Steve Scalise is saying Swalwell should be removed from the House Intelligence Committee.
Rep. Eric Swalwell was accusing President Trump of Russian collusion after he himself was entangled with a reported Chinese spy.
You can't make it up.
RT if you agree → Swalwell should be immediately removed from the Intelligence Committee.

That is the least that should be done.
We need a full scale investigation of Swalwell and his entire office and campaign.
