17 House Republicans demand Pelosi remove Swalwell from the Intel Committee

17 House Republicans led By Rep. Jim Banks have sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demanding California Democrat Eric Swalwell be removed from the House Intel Committee.

Swalwell was connected with alleged Chinese Spy Christine Fang in a recent bombshell report from Axios.

The letter states “we write to you today out of concern with Congressman Eric Swalwell’s reported, close contacts with a Chinese Communist Party spy recently reported by Axios. Because of Rep. Swalwell’s position on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, his close interactions with Chinese intelligence services, however unintentional they may be, are an unacceptable national security risk.”

It continues “HPSCI handles some of the most sensitive information our government possesses — information critical to our national defense. As such, we urge you to immediately remove Rep. Swalwell from his position on the House Intelligence Committee.”
