Swalwell Says Didn’t Compromise National Security, Amid Ties To China Sex Spy

Congressman Swalwell made his defense Sunday on CNN when asked about House Republicans removing him from the chamber's Intelligence Committee over concerns he's shared government secrets with a female Chinese spy.

  • The California Democrat had ties to alleged Chinese spy Fang Fang whom authorities believed was trying to gain U.S. government information by having sex with American politicians.
  • On Sunday, Swalwell was asked specifically whether he at least put himself in a “vulnerable position, in any way.”
  • Absolutely not but … don’t take my word for hit,” he responded. “Take the FBI’s word for it. I was never under any suspicion of wrong doing.”
