House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has called for Rep. Eric Swalwell, who is on the House Intelligence Committee, to be “removed from Congress” following allegations that he was involved with a suspected Chinese spy.

McCarthy joined Fox News host Laura Ingraham on “The Ingraham Angle” and asked, “Why is he still on the Intel Committee and why is he still a member of Congress?”

Mccarthy noted that the intel committee has access to information that no one else does.

“Remember what the intel committee gets. Information that no other members are able to see,” McCarthy said. “And remember what this member did. He was so preoccupied going after this president he was not protecting our country from bad actors.”

McCarthy was referring to Swalwell’s ongoing criticism against President Trump and Swalwell’s continuing unfounded allegations against the President and Russa.

“This is only the tip of the iceberg because remember what we’re hearing, these are Chinese spies that go down to the level of a mayor, they court and help a city council-member become a congressman, this congressman now gets on the Intel Committee,” stated McCarthy. “They are only selected for the Intel Committee by the leaders of their party, meaning Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Pelosi is one of the Gang of Eight, along with myself.”

“Did Nancy Pelosi know this had transpired when she put him on the Committee?” McCarthy continued. “We have our Senator Dianne Feinstein, for two decades, the personal assistant to hear all the private phone calls in the car and others, a Chinese spy.”

“Why did the Democrats pull out of the bipartisan China Task Force I had set up?” McCarthy questioned. Why did Speaker Pelosi pull out of that? Why have they denied certain bills that would hold China accountable that have passed Senate? Why do they focus on Silicon Valley members of Congress?”

Recently, Swalwell dismissed the China threat by saying Russia was much more threatening and criticized John Radcliff, Director of National Intelligence, for focusing on China.

“Why is he going after the Director of Intel John Radcliff?” McCarthy questioned. [Radcliff] recently came out and showed where China is six times larger in spending and spying than Russia is. 12 times larger in Iran. But the only person attacking him is Swalwell. Now we learn why.”

“Remember what Swalwell said, he accused the president of everything that he did, by lying to the American public and sitting on the Intel Committee,” McCarthy said. “Not only should he be removed from the Intel, he should be removed from Congress as well.”

Husband of Biden’s Commerce Secretary is Top Executive at Firm Funded by Chinese Government

Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo has a conflict of interest. She must work with her agency to combat and counter China on the world stage, all while supporting her husband’s position as a top executive for an artificial intelligence company whose major venture capital firm investor Is backed by the Chinese government.

Danhua Capital is based in California and is financially backed by the Chinese Communist Party. They are also one of the main funders of PathAI, an artificial intelligence firm that employs Raimondo’s husband, Andy Moffit. Moffit acts as the chief people officer.

The Chinese firm lists PathAI as one of its featured “biotech and health” investments on its website, although it’s unclear how much specifically Danhua Capital has invested. According to a 2018 Reuters report on the firm, Danhua Capital was established and funded as part of the Chinese government’s “penetration of Silicon Valley.”

In 2018, the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) testified before Congress that Danhua Capital’s mission is to use capital to narrow the technology gap between China and the United States. The Washington Free Beacon reports that many staffers from CNAS, a liberal think tank, are now employed in the highest ranks of the Biden administration.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that Raimondo’s agency was pushing back on efforts by others in the Biden administration to block Chinese technology firms from working with American companies. Commerce officials are arguing internally, according to the report, that the administration’s tougher approach to China would hurt U.S. companies.

Raimondo said on Thursday she would not urge U.S. companies to pull sponsorships from the upcoming Beijing Olympics after President Joe Biden announced a diplomatic boycott of the games over human rights abuses. “What individual companies do is entirely up to them,” Raimondo said. “We’re not going to pressure them one way or another.”
