House Speaker Nancy Pelosi decided to weigh in on the recent revelation concerning Rep. Eric Swalwell allegedly having a relationship with a Chinese spy who targeted important politicians.
“I don’t have any concerns about Mr. Swalwell,” Pelosi said to reporters.
In light of this story, many GOP leaders have questioned whether or not Swalwell should remain a member of the House Intelligence Committee, which has top-secret access to important national security information.
Pelosi, of course, has dismissed any discussion of removing Swalwell from the panel.
Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, has been the most vocal critic of Swalwell and has even suggested he should resign his seat in Congress.
“Did Nancy Pelosi know this had transpired when she put him on the committee?” McCarthy said on Fox News this week.
But Pelosi dismissed McCarthy’s concern.
“He’s trying to deflect from the fact that he has QAnon in his delegation over there,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi made the case Thursday that the Chinese spy information was revealed at the same time to leadership in both parties.
“And at the time, it was the end of it,” Pelosi said.
Folks, if the man was connected to a spy in any way, he needs to have his membership to the House Intel Committee revoked immediately. Who knows what kind of information Fang, the spy in question, managed to extract from her relationship with him.
The fact that Pelosi is putting her party ahead of the security of the entire nation speaks volumes about her concern for the country.
