A suspected Chinese intelligence operative, (aka. communist spy), got so close to the Democratic lawmaker that the FBI had to intervene to clue him in to the fact that he was being exploited. Swalwell was a 2020 Democratic candidate for the White House, as you may recall.
Through campaign fundraising, networking, personal charisma, romantic or sexual relationships, Fang manipulated politicians to gain proximity to political power.
Swalwell was among Fang’s “most significant targets,” with the relationship starting when he was a council member for Dublin City, Calif, — this being an indication of the long game China is engaged in.
As for the fallout, there were immediate calls for Swalwell to resign, including from Richard Grenell, the former Acting Director of National Intelligence. There was also a call for him to step down from the House Intelligence Committee until it can be determined that China has nothing on him they could blackmail him over.

So Rep Swalwell who spent years saying I was an agent of Russia was literally sleeping with a Chinese spy at the time.
You can’t make this stuff up. How can this compromised individual/moron continue to sit on an intelligence committee? https://t.co/NkU6F5Ctre

Democrats like Swalwell and Feinstein got the benefit of defensive briefings when it came to Chinese espionage against them. Trump did not get this kind of defensive briefing on Russia.

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