Fox News host Tucker Carlson said that United States intelligence officials believe that Rep. Eric Swalwell engaged in a sexual relationship with suspected Chinese spy Christine Fang. Swalwell is one of multiple Democrat politicians targetted by the spy in an effort to extract information for the Chinese.
I hope @RepSwalwell is watching Tucker right now. He’s talking about Swalwell sleeping with a Chinese communist spy that was under FBI investigation before she fled the country (possibly after being tipped off by Swalwell). pic.twitter.com/DwDXdsPoW7

In a report from The Daily Wire:
A Chinese intelligence agent, called Fang Fang, or as she renamed herself when she came to this country, Christine Fung, became a force within the Democratic Party of California. Along the way she cultivated a number of Democratic office holders. Fang had sexual relationships with at least two of them, identified in the Axios story as mayors from midwestern cities. Fang also began a relationship with a man called Eric Swalwell.
You may recognize that name. Eric Swalwell is a member of the United States Congress. Swalwell sits on the House Intelligence Committee. He is privy to this country’s most closely held secrets. Fang’s relationship with Swalwell began in 2012. Like so many Chinese spies, Fang used college as her cover. She enrolled as a student at a university in the Bay Area and immediately joined a number of left-wing identity politics organizations on campus. From there, she quite naturally began raising money for Democratic candidates.
U.S. Intelligence officials believe Fang had a sexual relationship with Eric Swalwell. We asked Swalwell’s office about that directly today, his staff replied by saying they couldn’t comment on whether or not Swalwell had sexual relationship with Fang because that information might be “classified.” They did not elaborate or explain what they meant by that.
We do know that when Fang met Swalwell, he was a little-known city councilman in the Bay Area, but he had grand political aspirations. Fang became his regular companion. She was photographed with Swalwell at political events several times. She became a financial bundler for his political campaigns. Fang apparently pulled in large amounts of money from a variety of sources to help Eric Swalwell get elected to Congress. It’s not entirely clear where all of that money came from. We do know that Fang helped Swalwell secure the support of his district’s Asian American community. Political analysts have called that a critical factor in his win in 2012.
Despite being informed by intelligence officials regarding Fang’s activities with the Chinese years ago Rep. Swalwell was among the Democrats who continually pointed fingers at President Trump alleging his involvement with Russia. Swalwell regularly claimed that President Trump was working on behalf of the Russians, even claiming the President himself is a Russian operative. Meanwhile, Swalwell had already cozied up to the suspected Chinese spy giving a whole new meaning to the phrase “sleeping with the enemy.”
