(NewsReady.com) – Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) is one of the most vocal anti-Donald Trump lawmakers in Congress. He’s spent quite a lot of time accusing the commander-in-chief of colluding with the Russians over the last few years. That’s what makes recent allegations so interesting.
On December 8, Axios published a year-long investigation exposing an alleged Chinese spy who targeted prominent, politically-connected Americans. A woman named Christine Fang reportedly got close to politicians in California between 2011 and 2015. One of those people was Rep. Swalwell.
Fang reportedly raised money for Swalwell and even put an intern in his office.
FLASHBACK: In January 2019, Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell said Russia was our "number one geopolitical foe."
However, a Chinese spy had "close ties" with Swalwell & she fundraised for him.
Why is Swalwell blind to China's threat?

The report says the congressman wasn’t accused of wrongdoing and was not aware of Fang’s ties to the Chinese government. However, it does raise the question: how could he allow this to happen? Maybe now he’ll stop accusing the president of wrongdoing and clean up his own house first.
