GOP Rep. Seeks Ethics Investigation of Swalwell Relationship With China Spy

Retiring Republican Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner is asking the House Ethics Committee to investigate Rep. Eric Swalwell’s relationship with suspected Chinese spy Fang Fang.

Swalwell (D-Calif.) has refused to confirm or deny whether he had a romantic relationship with the woman also known as Christine Fang, who is suspected of sleeping with at least two Midwest mayors as part of her espionage work.

In a letter first reported by Fox News, Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) wrote, “Rep. Swalwell repeatedly refuses to answer any questions about these allegations, including whether he alerted then-[Minority] Leader [Nancy] Pelosi to the potential compromise when she appointed him” to the House intelligence committee.

Sensenbrenner is a former longtime chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. The Democratic chairman of the ethics committee, Rep. Ted Deutch of Florida, would have to consent to a Swalwell probe.

“It is unknown how much private and/or classified information Fang had access to as a result of her relationship with Rep. Swalwell and whether Rep. Swalwell was compromised,” Sensenbrenner wrote. (Read more from “GOP Rep. Seeks Ethics Investigation of Swalwell Relationship With China Spy” HERE)
