    Surge Summary: Rep. Eric Swalwell, one of Donald Trump’s chief “Russia-gate” accusers, has been accused of having had an inappropriate relationship with a Chinese woman who was operating as a communist spy. He claims information as to the truthfulness of that charge is “classified”, so he cannot address it. Mainstream Media’s response is, more or less, to ignore this development.

    Rep. Eric Swalwell is digging in his heels and Democrats are circling the wagons to protect him.  We alluded to this [Wednesday], but when asked whether his relationship with a communist honeypot was sexual in nature, his staff refused to comment, saying that information was “classified.”

    I’m sure Bill Clinton must be frustrated for not having thought of that answer for his fouling of the Oval Office with Monica Lewinsky!

    No doubt many of you may be wondering how your liberal friends are reacting to the Swalwell story.  Well, you probably need to tell them about it because the fake news media are not reporting it.

    Apparently, a U.S. congressman being compromised by a communist spy is not newsworthy.  The “mainstream” networks completely ignored it, while CNN gave it about three minutes.

    Speaking on Sean Hannity’s show [Wednesday] night, former Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell said, “I can tell you without giving away too much intelligence [the Swalwell story] is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the leverage that China is putting on our politicians. There are many, many more.”

    It’s not surprising that the communist Chinese targeted Swalwell.  He has what Shakespeare called that “lean and hungry look.”  He was tapped early on as a rising star on the left.  And like so many progressives, he always assumes America is at fault, while frequently making excuses for communist China.

    When President Trump raised concerns about communist China, the left and its media allies immediately accused Trump of following the Russian playbook by attempting to smear progressives by linking them to China.

    But it’s the exact opposite of what we have been told.  Leftists in Congress, like Swalwell, and in the media who have been harping on Russian collusion have been following the Chinese communist playbook.

    They have tried to protect China by going after Donald Trump and conservatives who are tough on communist China by accusing conservatives of doing the work of Russia!
