Appearing on Fox and Friends this morning, House minority leader Kevin McCarthy announced he will be briefed by the FBI on Rep. Eric Swalwell’s ties to alleged Chinese spy Christine Fang soon.
McCarthy had accused the FBI of stonewalling in a recent tweet.
McCarthy asked “what do the communist Chinese have on the Democrats that is so powerful, so powerful that they focused on a person when he was a city council member, bundled money for him to become a member of Congress.”
“I will not give up,” he added.
McCarthy also called for Swalwell to be dismissed from the intel committee and argued the Democrats’ tendency to side against Republicans on matters pertaining to China “raises so many more questions.”
“This person got on to the intel committee. Did somebody lobby for him?” McCarthy asked “and in his first year, his committee was overseeing the CIA? And then at the same time, he ran for president.”
