(ConservativeInsider.org) – US House Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) is under the microscope as reports of a relationship with an alleged Chinese intelligence operative have surfaced. But, the congressman is hoping to divert the blame of this report to none other than President Donald Trump.
Swalwell is a long-time critic of the president and served on two committees to try and impeach him. But, on December Tuesday 8, Axios published a report about likely Chinese spy Christine Fang targeting Swalwell and other local politicians.
In an interview with Politico the same day, Swalwell said, “the timing feels like that should be looked at,” as the investigation was likely happening while he was trying to impeach the president.
The Washington Times shares its view of Swalwell’s latest move:
CHUMLEY OPINION Eric Swalwell now thinks Trump colluded with Axios – https://t.co/Cyukvx3j8q – @washtimes "Swalwell, the guy who tried to bring down Trump with Russia collusion charges — is now distracting and ducking and dodging from a collusion-like scandal of his own."
— The Washington Times (@WashTimes) December 9, 2020
Swalwell’s attempt to spin this story and pin it on President Trump colluding with Axios simply won’t work. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) already called for Swalwell to be “removed from Congress.” While the congressman may make it out of this scandal with his job, Americans should not stand for his attempts to steer the incident to anyone but himself.
