    The House Ethics Committee closed its two-year-long investigation into Rep. Eric Swalwell’s ties to suspected Chinese spy Christine Fang on Tuesday and said it will take no action against the California Democrat. “As you are aware, on April 9, 2021, the Committee on Ethics informed you that it had determined to investigate allegations raised in the complaint that you may have violated House Rules, laws, or other standards of conduct in connection with your interactions with Ms. Christine Fang. The Committee will take no further action in this matter,” read a letter to Swalwell from Ethics Committee Chairman Michael Guest...

James Comer (R-KY) said, “Trump is seven points ahead of Joe Biden and trending upward, and Joe Biden is trending downward. The media is scratching their head, realizing the American people are keeping up with our investigation.”

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) said Wednesday that a former NFL player threatened him with execution on Twitter. “Who is this guy threatening to execute me? And how does he have so many followers?” Swalwell asked on Twitter, posting a direct message from an account that appears to belong to former San Francisco 49ers and Jacksonville Jaguars fullback Bruce Miller. The message read, “Almost time!!! Would you rather Guantanamo or just execution,” followed by several laughing emojis and ending with “f—– traitor.” Swalwell said in an update Thursday that the 49ers had reached out to him about the “threat from a...

    Democratic California Rep. Eric Swalwell did not react kindly to Republican Texas Rep. Troy Nehls’ comments at a Wednesday Congressional hearing about Swalwell’s alleged relationship with a Chinese spy. Swalwell and Nehls participated in a hearing about the exploitation of unaccompanied migrant children held by the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration Integrity, Security, and Enforcement. “Ms. Rodriguez, I apologize that you had to — you’re here for a hearing on the border, they don’t want to talk about a border. Mr. Swalwell is down there, obviously everybody knows he’s made some comments, he’s got a checkered past,” Nehls said as...

    We’ve already gotten our “OOF” moment of the day and it took place at a House hearing when Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene responded to Rep.

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (R-Calif.) slammed Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) at a Judiciary subcommittee hearing on Thursday about “compliance with committee oversight,” pointing out that the chairman of the Judiciary Committee previously failed to comply with a congressional subpoena. “I think it’s quite rich that we are talking about subpoena compliance under a chairman of a full committee who was absolutely out of subpoena compliance in the last Congress,” Swalwell said. “So, we’re going to haul witnesses in here today and claim that they did not comply with subpoenas or requests,” he continued. “And that request is so rich because it’s...

    Embattled Rep. Eric Swalwell, the Democrat who was kicked off the House Select Committee on Intelligence by Republicans for having a years-long relationship with a Chinese spy, is looking to kick former President Donald Trump out of the Capitol forever. Swalwell, D-Calif., is the sole co-sponsor of a new Democratic resolution that says Trump and several of his top aides should be permanently banished from the Capitol because of their attempt to “undermine and overturn the 2020 presidential election.” The resolution from Rep. Nikema Williams, D-Ga., asks the House and Senate Sergeant at Arms and the U.S. Capitol Police to...

    On January 6th, 2021, the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team was the team that entered the Capitol Building after the protesters did. The Hostage Rescue Team (HRT), comprised of 350 people, was established in 1983 as a counterterrorism unit at the National level and has given law enforcement agencies in the United States a “tactical” option, a military option, for the most extraordinary cases they face. The Hostage Rescue Team was initially formed as a domestic counterterrorism unit; however, after the 9/11 attacks, the team expanded its mission and began to cooperate with the Joint Special Operations Command overseas in highly-publicized...

    News that the Pentagon was tracking a Chinese communist spy balloon hovering over the United States this week is raising concerns about the extent of China’s espionage efforts against America and its citizens.But just how far is the regime willing to go in order to spy on and undermine the United States?The espionage efforts of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which rules China as a single-party state, go much broader and deeper than mere sensor balloons. Such efforts include human intelligence gathering, transnational repression schemes, cyber theft and hacking, intellectual property theft, and even the harvesting of Americans’ genetic material.In...

    Newly minted House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is facing his first major test since winning the contentious battle for the position.Hakeem Jeffries, the Democrat House Minority Leader, has reappointed Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell to the Intelligence Committee. That comes after McCarthy vowed to keep the two rabid partisans, both of which abused their positions under Nancy Pelosi’s rule, on the sidelines. Jeffries seems content to push the issue, though, setting up a clash that will no doubt be very public.Here’s a bit of what Jeffries wrote to McCarthy, per The Washington Examiner. To call it shameless is an understatement.“I write...

    House Democrat Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) formally asked Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) this weekend to seat Reps. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Eric Swalwell (D-CA) on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Jeffries requested in a letter shared by Punchbowl News that McCarthy “honor past practice” and accept Jeffries’ recommendations of Schiff and Swalwell to the committee. “It is my understanding that you intend to break with the longstanding House tradition of deference to the minority party Intelligence Committee recommendations and deny seats to Ranking Member Schiff and Representative Swalwell,” Jeffries wrote. “The denial of seats to duly elected Members...

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif) complains that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s determination to keep him off the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) “is so unfair.” McCarthy defended his position, pointing out that “Swalwell’s long-term sexual liaison with a Chinese spy indicates that he should not be privy to the kind of sensitive national security information that the HPSCI deals with on a regular basis.” Swalwell called McCarthy’s explanation “unconvincing. President Biden stored classified documents at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, DC. This Center was funded by Chinese Communist Party money and included sharing...

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) said Wednesday that attacks from House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) are inspiring death threats against him. Swalwell told MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace on “Deadline: White House” that McCarthy plans to remove him from his committee assignments for “political vengeance.” Swalwell has emerged as a particularly controversial individual among House Republicans over his connection to a suspected Chinese spy during his 2014 reelection campaign, which became public in 2020. Swalwell ended his ties with the Chinese national when the FBI informed him of her identity, but Republicans have called for him to be removed from sensitive committee assignments...

    Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) blasted Rep Eric Swalwell (D-CA) at a press conference Thursday, telling reporters they would never give the Democrat a committee position if they received the same briefing from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) that he did. “Let me phrase something very direct to you: if you got the briefing I got from the FBI, you wouldn’t have Swalwell on any committee,” McCarthy told reporters. Breitbart News published an explosive exclusive report in August 2021 regarding a classified report indicating Swalwell was in an intimate sexual relationship with a Chinese spy named Fang...

    Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that the Republican-controlled House investigating the Department of Justice and FBI is “like letting Al Capone investigate Elliot Ness.” Anchor Joy Reid said, “You have something about the ‘weaponization of the federal government,’ that’s Jim Jordan, who might actually be a subject of an investigation by the DOJ.” She asked, “It’s not the crime. It’s the cover-up. Is the goal here to prevent accountability for some of the crimes that may have been committed in the insurrection? Is that the bottom line?”

    Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) said Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Last Word” that it looked like the Justice Department was moving towards an indictment of former President Donald Trump. The panel discussed reports the DOJ asked a federal judge to hold Trump in contempt of court for failing to comply with a subpoena ordering the former president to turn over classified documents. Swalwell said, “Whatever you are your viewers may think about previous investigations into Donald Trump, and the frustration that has come with those, this team is not screwing around. I think that that reflects the gravity of what it’s...

    The House Democratic leadership had nothing to say this week about GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy's pledge to boot three of their members from their committed assignments when Republicans take power in January. Fox News Digital reached out to every member of the present Democratic leadership — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and Majority Whip Jim Clyburn — about the topic, but no response was provided. The top three Democrats likely to ascend to the leadership ladder next Congress – Reps. Hakeem Jeffries, Katherine Clark and Pete Aguilar – also declined to comment. ...

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's pledge to block Democratic Reps. Eric Swalwell, Adam Schiff and "Squad" member Ilhan Omar from committees next Congress drew a strong response from the lawmakers. Omar, a Minnesota Democrat who has been accused of making antisemitic statements, claimed that McCarthy's pledge was just another example of her being targeted by Republicans. "From the moment I was elected, the Republican Party has made it their mission to use fear, xenophobia, Islamophobia and racism to target me on the House floor and through millions of dollars of campaign ads," said Omar. "McCarthy’s effort to repeatedly single me...
