House leaders Nancy Pelosi and Kevin McCarthy have received an FBI briefing on Rep. Eric Swalwell’s ties to Fang Fang, a suspected Chinese spy.
After the meeting, GOP Leader McCarthy said the briefing “only raised more questions. The one thing that was fundamentally answered: he should not be on Intel.”
McCarthy added “there are definitely 200 other Democrats that I know could fill that place long before this individual should be serving.”
Pelosi has not commented since the briefing but last week said “I don’t have any concern about Mr. Swalwell.”
Meanwhile, GOP Rep. Chip Roy has sent a letter joining the chorus of many Republicans calling for his removal from the House Intel Committee.
