Eric Swalwell’s Chinese Honey Trap

Posted on | December 11, 2020 | 2 Comments

When Chinese agent “Christine” Fang first befriended Eric Swalwell, he was just a city councilman in a suburb of Oakland, California. So how did she know to target him specifically? Swalwell challenged incumbent Rep. Pete Stark, who had Obama’s endorsement, in the 2012 Democratic primary. Out of all the local politicians in the San Francisco Bay area, why would Fang make Swalwell a target of her influence operation, unless Fang’s Chinese spymasters had some inside knowledge?

Not to get too paranoid here, but it has been reported that Fang raised money for Swalwell, and you have to wonder if Beijing’s influence was a “thumb on the scale” of that 2012 election. In other words, Fang targeted Swalwell because China knew he would beat Stark — the fix was in.

That’s just a theory, of course, but it is a reasonable inference, given what we know about Swalwell’s pro-China/anti-American agenda.

Notice what Axios pointed out about Swalwell’s district:

The Bay Area offers ideal conditions for a foreign intelligence operative aiming to identify and target ambitious local politicians with national aspirations. . . .
Some of America’s most powerful politicians got their start in Bay Area politics, and China recognizes California’s importance. The MSS has a unit dedicated solely to political intelligence and influence operations in California.
Silicon Valley is also the world’s most important center for the technology industry, making it a hotbed for Chinese economic espionage. Russian intelligence has also long targeted the Bay Area. . . .
Democrats dominate the Bay Area, from mayors to its numerous U.S. congressional districts, and anyone seeking proximity to power needs to be in their political circles.

Jonathan Swan of Axios explained why this scandal is so important:

“It shows how the Chinese Communist Party operates inside this country. It shows how they infiltrate local politics, how they identify young, in some cases soft targets, people who don’t have a lot of staff around them, who don’t have experience, who don’t actually understand the tactics of the Chinese Communist Party, and then they follow them up … In Eric Swalwell’s case, he has become a very, very powerful, important member of Congress with access to the nation’s top secrets. So it’s a very important story just to understand how China is operating … right now in this country.”

It is certainly not a coincidence that a Chinese agent targeted Swalwell who, as a member of the House Intelligence Committee, was an outspoken advocate of the anti-Trump “Russian collusion” hoax.

The Democratic Party is now controlled by Communist China. Democrats are the anti-American party. They will do nothing to protect us from China, because what is bad for America is good for Democrats.

Ric Grenell warned about the danger on NewsMax:

Democrats in Congress are compromised by Chinese embeds, specifically those tied to intelligence committees like Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., according to former acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell on Newsmax TV.
“They have infiltrated academia as well as politics, and something needs to be done,” Grenell told Thursday’s “Stinchfield,” making a call for both the House and Senate Intelligence committees to be investigated for China espionage in classified settings.
“This is extremely deep. This is not the only case. I can assure you, there are many members of Congress and Democrat governors and local officials who have been targeted by the Chinese and the Chinese have pushed leverage.”
The massive foreign espionage campaign influence “has picked up” amid the global coronavirus pandemic, Grenell added to host Grant Stinchfield.
“The Chinese have seen their reputation completely tank because of what the intelligence community made clear that COVID-19 started in China.
“So, we have a crisis on our hands.”
