House GOP leader prepares resolution to kick Swalwell off Intel committee

While he assumed a central role in pushing for the impeachment of then-President Donald Trump earlier this year, U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) continues to face his own partisan backlash.

Amid revelations that Swalwell had a close relationship with a Chinese spy and speculation that the two were engaged in a romantic affair, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is preparing to introduce a resolution that would strip him of his seat on the House Intelligence Committee, The Hill reported.

“Next week, I will offer a resolution”

In a tweet this week, McCarthy noted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) “just reappointed Eric Swalwell” to the Intelligence panel, declaring that he “should not be on the panel in charge of guarding our nation’s secrets.”

As a result, the GOP leader wrote: “Next week, I will offer a resolution to remove him from the Intel Committee.”

Swalwell’s relationship with Christine Fang attracted attention in recent weeks, including her role as a fundraiser during his 2014 campaign and as an intern in 2015 before she fled the U.S. to avoid a federal probe into her actions.

They were also widely rumored to be involved romantically, though Swalwell denied those allegations.

Video evidence has surfaced purportedly showing Fang engaged in a sexual encounter with an Ohio mayor and another Midwestern mayor referred to her as his girlfriend.

“Trying to make an issue of this”

The FBI does not believe Fang was able to gain any sensitive information from her connection to Swalwell, who cut ties with her immediately after he was briefed about her suspected role as a Chinese spy in 2015.

In a statement on the matter, Swalwell’s office asserted that he “provided information” about Fang to the FBI and has not seen her “in nearly six years.”

While neither Swalwell nor Fang have been accused of wrongdoing, the latter’s actions with multiple politicians were consistent with intelligence-gathering practices that were prevalent at the time.

Although Fang reportedly also targeted other high-profile California Democrats, none were on the Intelligence panel, which receives briefings on national secrets.

Late last year, Pelosi signaled her support for the embattled congressman, stating that she did not “have any concern” about Swalwell and calling it “unfortunate that Mr. McCarthy is trying to make an issue of this.”
