(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) The House Ethics Committee officially concluded its investigation into California Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell’s Chinese spy mistress, determining that nothing ought to be done.
Swalwell’s mistress, Christine Fang, also known as Fang Fang, ran a political intelligence operation for China’s civilian spy agency for years.
At the behest of China’s Ministry of State Security, Fang enrolled at a California college and began seducing various up-and-coming public officials, potentially including Swalwell, for whom she worked as an intern.
When asked by Tucker Carlson about the alleged intimate relationship, Swalwell’s team declined to answer because the information was “classified.”
Yet despite mounting evidence against Swalwell, the House committee concluded in a letter to Swalwell that there was insufficient evidence to suggest that he “violated House Rules, laws, or other standards of conduct in connection with your interactions with Ms. Christine Fang,” the Gateway Pundit reported.
They also noted that “the Committee will take no further action in this matter” because it had “reviewed allegations of improper influence by foreign agents” and found no evidence.
“We encourage you to contact the Office of House Security for any guidance on steps you can take to prevent or address such attempts,” they continued, adding that “it is not our intention to release this letter publicly unless you make public statements regarding this matter that are inconsistent with the spirit and purpose of this letter.”
After the ruling was handed down, Swalwell released a statement celebrating his alleged innocence.
“It’s time to move on,” he wrote.
“The bipartisan House Ethics Committee had this case for over two years. . . Today, they are closing this matter and did not make a finding of any wrongdoing.”
He also suggested that he would dedicate himself to defending democracy from its attackers.
“I will continue to be a voice on behalf of my constituents and a passionate defender of democracy,” he concluded.
