The revelation that Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell — a member of the House intelligence committee — had a close relationship to a spy from Red China should be a scandal that rocks Nancy Pelosi and the rest of House leadership. What did they know? When did they know it? Why didn’t they do anything about it?National Review reported, “A suspected Chinese intelligence operative developed relationships with a number of American politicians as part of a Chinese political intelligence operation that ended in 2015, including Democratic congressman Eric Swalwell, for whom Christine Fang helped raise funds.
“Fang helped raise funds for Swalwell’s 2014 re-election campaign, a year-long investigation found, citing a Bay Area political operative and a current U.S. intelligence official. She also helped place at least one intern in the California Democrat’s office.
“There is no evidence in Federal Election Commission records that Fang herself donated to Swalwell’s campaign. Donations from foreign nationals are illegal.
“Between 2011 and 2015, Fang also developed close ties with several other local and national U.S. politicians across the country, particularly in the Bay Area, according to the Axios investigation, which cites current and former U.S. intelligence officials and one former elected official.
“She also had romantic or sexual relationships with at least two Midwestern mayors over a three-year period. Fang, who was in her late 20s or early 30s at the time, was enrolled as a student at California State University, East Bay.”
Forget my questions earlier. The media does not care if Red China spies on us. It merely reports and moves on because holding Democrats accountable could cost a reporter his sources and even his job.
The media moves on just as it did with Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein. She is the top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee. Red China placed a spy on her staff.
When it became public knowledge, nothing happened to her. She stayed on the committee as if it were OK to give Red China state secrets through a third party.
Indeed, as head of the committee, her chief of security traded secrets for sex with a reporter. He went to prison for a few months. The reporter was promoted to the New York Times. And Feinstein stayed on.
She was not as lucky when she said something nice about Republican Senator Lindsay Graham. Democrats forced her to say, “After serving as the lead Democrat on the Judiciary Committee for four years, I will not seek the chairmanship or ranking member position in the next Congress.”
Comity is a crime in Congress.
Handing over intelligence to Red China is not.
Somebody pointed out that Chuck Yeager died on Pearl Harbor Day, one of the last of a great generation of men. We will never have them again. Instead we have sellouts like Swalwell and Feinstein.
