Marjorie Taylor Greene stunned the Homeland Security Committee on April 19 after accusing Democrat Eric Swalwell of having sexual connections with an accused Chinese agent.
Her recent remarks regarding Democrat Eric Swalwell sparked a debate. Many people are now speculating about his previous relationship with Christine Fang, a suspected Chinese spy.
Who is Christine Fang?
Christine Fang is a suspected Chinese spy.
According to a 2020 Axios report, the alleged Chinese spy is a woman by the name of Fang Fang or Christine Fang. According to the investigation, Fang specifically targeted aspiring lawmakers in the Bay Area and around the country.
According to Axios, US officials believe that from 2011 to 2015, China’s primary civilian intelligence organization conducted operations. Fang allegedly took part in the aforementioned operation.
Fang allegedly made connections with lawmakers through networking, campaign fundraising, and other methods. She also apparently had ties with at least two Midwestern mayors, both romantic and sexual.
Republican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene brought up Fang’s past relationship with Rep. Eric Swalwell’s in a Homeland Security Committee in April 2023.
After Axios first revealed Swalwell’s connections to Fang in 2020, House Republicans drafted a motion to have Swalwell removed from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. However, the resolution was shelved by Democrats.
After Republicans reclaimed control of the House in January, Speaker Kevin McCarthy later prevented Swalwell from joining the committee.
Fang targeted aspiring politicians, including Swalwell, and federal investigators informed Swalwell of his actions in 2015. The article stated that Swalwell subsequently severed all ties with Fang and has not been charged with any misconduct.
When Swalwell was asked about Fang, he said – “First and foremost, and you don’t have to take my word for it, take the FBI’s word for it… when they told me who she… I did everything that I hoped everyone would do, which was to cooperate and help the FBI, and she was removed. And Donald Trump, who would later find out about this when he was president, with the greatest access to classified information of anyone who walks the earth, if he could’ve embarrassed me by showing any wrongdoing, after all the names he’s called me, he would’ve.”
