Eric Swalwell’s China Connection

Eric Swalwell’s China Connection

Eric Swalwell had a China connection. One that had her nose under his tent as well as many others. Axios broke the story late last night.

Seems a young lady in her late 20’s/early 30’s named Fang Fang, or Christina Fang showed up in the Bay area in 2011 and enrolled in Cal State University East Bay. She immediately joined the Chinese Student Association and quickly became president of the chapter. From there, she started showing up at political events all over the area. Political events that involved local politicians as well as state and federal level politicos. Tulsi Gabbard, Rho Khanna, and others, including Eric Swalwell. 

Specifically her involvement with Swalwell included the following:

  • Fundraised as a bundler on behalf of his 2014 campaign
  • Interacted directly with Swalwell at many events over the course of two or more years
  • Was key in getting at least one intern placed into Swalwell’s DC office

However, her additional activities, including meeting and engaging sexually with two Mid-western mayors after attending a National Mayor’s conferences landed her on the FBI’s radar. They, after tracking her movements, gave Swalwell a defensive briefing. 

So, this story, according to Eric Swalwell, is a non-starter. 

“”Rep. Swalwell, long ago, provided information about this person — whom he met more than eight years ago, and whom he hasn’t seen in nearly six years — to the FBI. To protect information that might be classified, he will not participate in your story.”

Except that the info Swalwell did or didn’t provide came AFTER the FBI went to him and informed him that he has a China connection problem!

Supposedly Christina Fang knew enough high profile people to act as a bundler for Eric Swalwell’s campaign, even though she’d only been in the Bay Area for not quite four years at that juncture. It’s super interesting that someone so unknown, and from China, was connected enough to solicit campaign donations on behalf of Swalwell. 

Secondly, she had enough direct influence with Swalwell and his campaign team to get an intern of her choice placed in his DC office? Again, for someone so new to the United States, there’s a lot of stinky fish stories surrounding Christina Fang and those she interacted with.

John Ratcliffe, Director of National Intelligence sounded the alarm on this and China’s larger scope of economic and technological espionage last Thursday. 

“China already suppresses U.S. web content that threatens the Communist Party’s ideological control, and it is developing offensive cyber capabilities against the U.S. homeland. This year China engaged in a massive influence campaign that included targeting several dozen members of Congress and congressional aides.”

That was THIS YEAR. 

Ratcliffe then outlined a scenario wherein a Chinese-owned manufacturing facility here in the US can be used to influence shifts in policy if it is counterintuitive to China’s interests. Given the scenario he outlined, I’d bet it’s based upon something that actually happened.

But key in this is that China is heavily engaged in getting their nose under our political leadership’s tent.

“Our intelligence shows that Beijing regularly directs this type of influence operation in the U.S. I briefed the House and Senate Intelligence committees that China is targeting members of Congress with six times the frequency of Russia and 12 times the frequency of Iran.”

None of which should surprise our readers, should it? After all, we’ve reported on Diane Feinstein’s Chinese chauffeur, the arrest of former CIA agent, and the entire Joe/Hunter Biden China connection as well. Now we have Christina Fang operating here in the United States and specifically targeting key politicos in the Bay Area.

Eric Swalwell continually says and does dumb things, which likely is one of the reasons she was sent after him. 

Swalwell is still all in on his Russia collusion theories, but this China thing? No big deal. Except, as Kim wrote this morning, China’s work on influence peddling, along with economic and technological espionage is a VERY BIG DEAL. 

China is asshole on a number of fronts, and we should all be concerned about it. Unless you are Twitter or national politicians. 

Supposedly this story is also a non-starter because Swalwell put America first unlike Trump and Republicans. 

Which is so incredibly laughable given Swalwell’s continual beating of the Trump Russia Collusion!!! drum for the last four years. Swalwell only puts himself first. His constituents and this Republic? Dead last. 

Eric Swalwell’s China connection abruptly left the country in 2015. That sends up red flags. Red flags that Democrats and the media hope we will ignore. Why? So the Biden team can do their best to take us back into business as usual with China. If that does happen, will Christina Fang magically reappear?
