FLATULATING CONGRESSMAN'S AFFAIR STINKS UP WASHINGTON.
Julio Gonzalez, M.D., J.D.
In an extensive report, Axios exposed a one-woman Chinese spy ring that sent chills through Washington, D.C. The case had all the makings of a reverse, James Bond movie including a role for a useful idiot, this time played by California Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA).
We have come across Swalwell before in national politics. During President Trump's first term, Swalwell, who sat on the House Intelligence Committee, was one of those annoying Democrats who kept nonsensically charging "Russian collusion" long after the case against the President fell apart. He was also one of the most zealous drummers calling for the President's impeachment merely for using his Due Process rights to defend himself against a congressional witch-hunt. We also witnessed Swalwell's lackluster performance in his failed run for President. He is the same Swalwell who threatened the nuclear annihilation of America's gun owners, and of course, he is also the one who infamously and audibly flatulated during a live interview with a major news organization.
This time, we find that our hapless Swalwell slept his way into the middle of Chinese spy ring featuring a very attractive Chinese spy named Fang Fang, or Christine Fang. The Axios story lays out a sordid affair involving multiple politicians with immense potential for disseminating sensitive information to the Chinese government.
In as much fairness as can be demonstrated to Swalwell, it appears he has not seen Fang Fang in about six years. It is also true that as soon as the FBI brought up its concerns to the bumbling congressman, he immediately dissolved their relationship. But it also appears that Swalwell had been involved with the operative for about five years, a relationship that is strongly suspected of having become physically intimate. What's more, the operative apparently was successful in injecting herself into the lives of many politicians through participation in their campaigns and fundraising efforts. The names of individuals whose lives Fang Fang touched include Congresspersons Ro Khanna and Tulsi Gavvard, and City Councilmember Raj Salwan. But none had the intimate, recurrent, and extensive contacts that Swalwell had. The Axios piece also suggests that Swalwell may have tipped off Ms. Fang, as she quickly left the country shortly after the FBI informed the congressman of the investigation.
Since the Axios story broke, Mr. Swalwell was removed from all his committees.
