Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) responded to House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy’s threat to remove him from his position on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) if McCarthy becomes Speaker of the House.

“He will not be serving there,” McCarthy asserted about Swalwell’s service on the HPSCI in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News.

Swalwell replied to McCarthy’s threats: "McCarthy is targeting me for 1 reason: I’m effective. He wants to carry water (& sort Starbursts) for Trump’s Big Lie & not be called out. He’s projecting onto me b/c he’s incapable of facing down the Ku Klux Klan elements in his caucus. If he thinks he’s silencing me, he’s not."

Back in December 2020, Swalwell came under fire after it was revealed he had a long-running affair with a woman named Fang Fang, whom intelligence community officials identified as a Chinese Communist Party spy.

Chinese national Fang Fang, or Christine Fang, targeted up-and-coming local politicians in the Bay Area and across the country who had the potential to make it big on the national stage. Through campaign fundraising, extensive networking, personal charisma, and romantic or sexual relationships with at least two Midwestern mayors, Fang was able to gain proximity to political power, according to current and former U.S. intelligence officials and one former elected official.

Even though U.S. officials do not believe Fang received or passed on classified information, the case "was a big deal, because there were some really, really sensitive people that were caught up" in the intelligence network, a current senior U.S. intelligence official said.

Swalwell is not the only prominent Democrat McCarthy intends to divest of their committee assignments.

McCarthy pledged that as Speaker of the House, he would also strip Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Adam Schiff of their Committee assignments, citing certain controversies and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) unprecedented refusal to seat McCarthy’s nominations for the January 6 Select Committee.

“You look at Adam Schiff—he should not be serving on Intel when he has openly, knowingly now used a fake dossier, lied to the American public in the process, and doesn’t have any ill will [and] says he wants to continue to do it,” McCarthy stated.

McCarthy noted that “Ilhan Omar should not be serving on Foreign Affairs.” Omar has consistently made anti-semitic comments about Israel, a key Middle East ally of the U.S., and insisted “some people did something,” about 9/11. A spokesperson for Rep. Omar declined to comment, according to Axios.
