(UnitedVoice.com) – On October 8, Axios published a yearlong investigation into a Chinese spy plot to establish relationships with California politicians. From 2011 through 2015, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) was targeted by Christine Fang, an operative for the Communist government. A Republican congressman is now calling for the Democrat to be “removed from Congress.”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) spoke to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham about the scandal. He said he thinks the Axios report is just the “tip of the iceberg.” He wants to know if Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) knew about Swalwell’s connection to the Chinese spy who donated to his campaign and planted an intern in his office. And if that led to the chamber’s refusal to deny bills that “would hold China accountable.”

According to the Axios report, Swalwell didn’t know the woman he was in contact with was a spy. The FBI cleared him of wrongdoing and when he found out about the woman, he cut contact. But McCarthy definitely has a right to ask questions, and the American people deserve answers.
