House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) called for the removal of Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) from the House Intelligence Committee — and Congress — on Fox News following the publication of a year-long investigative report linking Swalwell to Fang Fang. Fang, also known as Christine, used her connections, charisma, and sex to infiltrate the U.S. government’s corridors of power on behalf of China’s Ministry of State Security, Beijing’s equivalent to the KGB.

According to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, the U.S. Intelligence Community “believe Fang had a sexual relationship with Eric Swalwell.”
Fang fled the United States in 2015 as federal investigators began closing in.
The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra reports:
“This is only the tip of the iceberg because remember what we’re hearing, these are Chinese spies that go down to the level of a mayor, they court and help a city councilmember become a congressman, this congressman now gets on the Intel Committee,” McCarthy told Fox News host Laura Ingraham. “They are only selected for the Intel Committee by the leaders of their party, meaning Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Pelosi is one of the Gang of Eight, along with myself.”
“Did Nancy Pelosi know this had transpired when she put him on the Committee?” McCarthy continued. “We have our Senator Dianne Feinstein, for two decades, the personal assistant to hear all the private phone calls in the car and others, a Chinese spy.”
McCarthy noted that members of the House Intelligence Committee get classified information that other members of Congress do not get. McCarthy also questioned why Swalwell was attacking Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, who has repeatedly warned that China is the largest threat that the United States faces.
“The only person attacking him is Swalwell,” McCarthy continued. “Now we learn why. Why is this person still there?”
