It appears that the public has not yet heard the whole story of the reported relationship between U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and alleged Chinese spy Fang Fang.
According to an exclusive report by Breitbart, a classified intelligence briefing provides “intimate detail” about their sexual relationship.
Troubling new allegations
Although speculation has widely swirled regarding an affair between the two, the exact nature of their connection has remained vague since it was first revealed in an Axios report last year.
The California Democrat has refused to address inquiries regarding his relationship with Fang, who is also known as Christine Fang.
The two reportedly formed a connection prior to Swalwell’s rise to the House of Representatives. Fang had also been a fundraiser for his re-election campaign in 2014 and placed an intern in his office.
When the scandal became public, Swalwell and his allies downplayed it and noted that he severed ties with Fang after receiving a tip about her Chinese ties. The latest update, however, signals that there is more to the story.
One former national security official with knowledge of the situation offered some startling context.
“For those who have seen the details of the Swalwell case, it was shocking that [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi and [Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam] Schiff so willingly kept him on the intelligence committee even for nakedly partisan lawmakers like themselves,” the official said.
It appears unlikely that the Biden administration will voluntarily release any report that would cast Swalwell in an embarrassing light. A second source insisted that the report deserves to be seen by the American people.
“Regardless of whether you would have pegged Eric Swalwell as someone dumb enough to sleep with a CCP spy, the evidence is damning,” the individual stated.
According to the source, the “report should be declassified,” insisting there are “no concerns about sources or methods” and the “only purpose served by keeping that report classified is saving Swalwell from embarrassment.”
Notably, this is not his only ongoing scandal. Recent reports indicated that he has doled out tens of thousands of dollars in campaign cash on fancy hotels, dinner, limo rides, and alcohol so far this year.
