The calls for the resignation of Rep. Eric Swalwell are growing louder and more frequent.
And they can’t be ignored any longer.

Swalwell — a member of the House Intelligence Committee and former 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful — has been on the hot seat for his involvement with a reported Chinese spy.
Republican lawmakers are demanding that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi remove Swalwell.
The GOP has a petition, signed by 17 lawmakers.
Swalwell is a threat to national security, the letter reads.
“Because of Rep. Swalwell’s position on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence,” the letter reads, “his close interactions with Chinese intelligence services, however unintentional they may be, are an unacceptable national security risk.”
“We urge you to immediately remove Rep. Swalwell from his position on the House Intelligence Committee,” the letter added.
Swalwell was linked to Chinese spy Fang Fang, also known as Christina Fang. Based on reports, Fang entered America as a college student in 2011 and got intimate with numerous politicians, including two midwestern mayors.

She met Swalwell in 2014. The congressman claimed that they cut ties in 2015.
And the former 2020 hopeful and his office are keeping silent on whether or not he had a relationship with the “honeytrap” spy. His staff told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson they couldn’t speak on the matter.
“… they could not comment whether Swalwell had a sexual relationship with Fang, because that information might be, ‘classified”,” Carlson said.
Even top conservatives like Donald Trump Jr. are now pointing out the hypocrisy of the Democratic side.
For years, Swalwell did his part to fuel charges that President Donald Trump was secretly colluding with the Russians. Now that the roles are reversed, Swalwell, Pelosi and the Democrats are turning a blind eye to the charges.

As recently as last Thursday, Pelosi said “I don’t have any concerns about Mr. Swalwell.”
