Rep. Eric Swalwell retweeted a Tweet on Monday that compared President Donald Trump to genocidal dictators Saddam Hussein and Adolf Hitler.

“Leaders who have hidden in a bunker and gassed their own citizens include Saddam Hussein, Adolf Hitler, and Donald Trump,” Twitter user Ben Wexler wrote in the tweet shared by Swalwell.

The tweet comes as many media outlets report that the President instructed law enforcement to clear the White House perimeter from protestors outraged by the tragic death of George Floyd. Many reported that the Park Police used tear gas, however, they later clarified that no tear gas was used.

On countless occasions, Swalwell has called the President a “fascist” leader. He also doubled down Wednesday when the Republican Jewish Coalition condemned him for comparing a member of the first openly gay member of the President’s cabinet, Richard Grenell, “to infamous Nazi Joseph Goebbels.”

Instead of apologizing for the egregious comment, Swalwell responded, “In a few years, my children will be old enough to ask, ‘Dad, what did you do when Trump gassed peaceful protestors for a photo-op at a church?” The only thing I’ll be sorry for is if I’m not able to say, “everything I could to help save our country.”

House Republicans Subpoena DOJ for Records of Biden’s Interview with Special Counsel

Joe Biden

Special Counsel Robert Hur determined that President Joe Biden not only mishandled classified documents, but he also declined to press charges against him because his advanced age and declining memory would influence a potential jury.

“Mr. Biden will likely present himself to the jury, as he did during his interview with our office, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur wrote.

House Republicans have subpoenaed the Department of Justice (DOJ) for the interview transcripts, audio, notes and video files from Hur’s interview with Biden which transpired during the investigation.

“The Committees further seek to understand whether the White House or President Biden’s personal attorneys placed any limitations or scoping restrictions during the interviews with Special Counsel Hur or Mr. Mark Zwonitzer precluding or addressing any potential statements directly linking President Biden to troublesome foreign payments,” the lawmakers said in a subpoena cover letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“Special Counsel Hur’s report outlined that classified documents Joe Biden stashed for years relate to countries where his family cashed in on the Biden brand. We owe it to the American people to provide transparency and accountability about the extent of Joe Biden retaining sensitive materials and the concerns raised about his current mental state and fitness to be President of the United States,” Comer said in a statement. Comer, Jordan and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R., Mo.) are leading the impeachment inquiry.

“Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents made two things clear: there’s a double standard of justice in this country and Joe Biden isn’t fit for office. The transcripts and materials from his investigation are critical to our oversight work,” Jordan stated.
