Bang Bang Fang Fang: Eric Swalwell’s China Spy Secrets Inspire Painful Puns

Posted on | July 28, 2021 | Comments Off on Bang Bang Fang Fang: Eric Swalwell’s China Spy Secrets Inspire Painful Puns

Monday, Matthew Boyle at Breitbart published this:

The U.S. Intelligence Community currently has in its possession a classified report that includes intricate and intimate details of the nature of the relationship between Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and a Chinese spy known as “Fang Fang,” Breitbart News has confirmed.
The report, which intelligence and national security sources familiar with its contents who spoke on condition of anonymity told Breitbart News, contains details of the nature of Swalwell’s relationship with Fang Fang including certain sexual acts they allegedly engaged in together. Sources familiar with it, however, would not provide any more detail on the nature of those acts or other details in the report—which is currently classified.

While this classified report has not yet been leaked, and Boyle claims his sources “would not provide any more detail” about exactly what transpired between Swalwell and Fang, the clues are beginning to accumulate, in the form of suggestive phrasing:

“Regardless of whether you would have pegged Eric Swalwell as someone dumb enough to sleep with a CCP spy, the evidence is damning,” a second source familiar with the report’s details, a former external senior adviser to Intelligence Community (IC) leadership, told Breitbart News. “That report should be declassified. There are no concerns about sources or methods. The only purpose served by keeping that report classified is saving Swalwell from embarrassment. That’s not a good enough reason.”

I see what you did there.

Boyle’s editor got in on the hint-hint game Tuesday night:

On Tuesday’s edition of the Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow, author of Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption, stated that a Breitbart News report points to “deep penetration inside” the operation of Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) “by the Chinese government.”
Marlow said, “Now, we knew Fang Fang was infiltrating operations within the United States, various offices and having relationships with up-and-coming politicians before she abruptly left the country a few years ago, and we knew she had an intimate relationship with Swalwell. We just didn’t know the extent to which it was intimate.”
“Well, now, apparently, we do, according to this report, which, as of now, Swalwell hasn’t denied,” he continued. “Tucker, this is deep penetration inside the Swalwell operation by the Chinese government.”

Look, I’m not stupid enough to miss those clues, but on the other hand, this is not a subject I want to think about, much less to have to write about, so let’s not . . . uh, probe this topic too much deeper. As far as I’m concerned, these secrets can remain classified forever.
