During a Friday appearance on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced he was briefed by the FBI regarding Rep. Eric Swalwell’s reported ties to Chinese spy Christine Fang after being stonewalled twice.
While speaking to reporters after receiving an FBI briefing on Friday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) stated that the briefing made it clear that Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) should not be on the House Intelligence Committee.
McCarthy said, “I don’t talk about what goes on inside there, but it only raised more questions. The one thing that was fundamentally answered, he should not be on Intel.”
“I’ve never been briefed on this. I learned about this the same time you did, and in that meantime, I have asked for a briefing, and twice the FBI has canceled the briefing that they had scheduled with me in the last week. Today, I will get a briefing,” McCarthy advised earlier Friday.
McCarthy went on to say that the report raises many questions, such as what do the Chinese have on the Democratic Party and how did Swalwell end up on the Intelligence Committee?

“And what’s important to me is it raises so many more questions,” he stated. “What do the communist Chinese have on the Democrats that is so powerful — so powerful that they focused on a person when he was a city council member, bundled money for him to become a member of Congress. This person got on to the Intel Committee.
