They say what comes around goes around. But in Shanghai Swalwell’s case, it REALLY goes around. Swalwell’s current embarrassment could not have happened to a better liar.

During the Mueller probe, Swalwell repeatedly claimed - without a shred of evidence - that Trump not only colluded with Russia but also that he was an “agent” of Russian intelligence. President Trump was cleared after a two year investigation, yet Swalwell insisted on his former claims that President Trump was a spy. Bottom line: Swalwell lied

Swalwell is a former deputy district attorney who worked for Alameda County. His job was to bring evidence against the accused in a court of law. He wasn’t allowed to make claims against a defendant if he did not have evidence - material or otherwise. Not only that, Swalwell took an oath to faithfully uphold the law - which also means to tell the truth. At the very least, I would think he would have taken his oath as a congressman and applied it in the same fashion. He failed - and rather miserably I might add.

Swalwell needs to be taken off the House Intelligence Committee and replaced with someone who has credibility. I know, I know, that’s a lot to ask of our representatives in Washington D.C. these days, but Swalwell’s lies and poor judgment do a disservice to a sensitive position.

Please, anybody, literally anybody, please run against this absolute loser Eric Swalwal and remove him from office. Even before this evidence came out that he was personally involved with a Chinese spy for years, it was clear he is unstable, has delusions of grandeur, and was not qualified to serve on the Dublin City Council much less serve in the House of Reps in D.C. He thinks he is a young JFK, jr., and that everyone is infatuated with him. The only one infatuated with Swalwal is Swalwal.

If you read in more detail about this information from the FBI, it was clear he was romantically involved with this Chinese Spy, who obviously gained information from him to help our foreign enemies. Swalwal is already on his second marriage, and despite making a good income in the House of Reps, still has large student loans he has not paid off as he lives beyond his means and has no personal discipline and is subject to blackmail financially. When recently asked if he had sex with this Chinese Spy" his official answer was "it is classified". Wow, how lame can this guy be!! His office later said "there is no evidence Ms.Fang(the spy) obtained evidence from him." Of course not, do you think China is going to say, "Yes, here is the information we obtained from our spy..." The FBI report made it clear this spy was intimately involved with Swalwal for years, and yet he refuses to even step down from the Intelligence Committee, much less from his seat in the House. Swalwal is a selfish loser, and I would vote for literally anyone who ran against him. Please, any Democrat, any Republican, any Independent, anyone with a pulse, please run against him, as so many of us will vote for you just to stop hearing from this idiot Swalwal!!!

Spying is a must-have thing during pre-war status in the world, I think that we will face the big war in next 30 years for sure.
But methods are changing - now people can spy on your smartphone without your knowing, you can read about it here Web Link , so people are launching a spy without knowing from a victim, this is a digital information war already
