Eric Swalwell's Campaigns Funded by Chinese Communist Party Employee
Victoria Li made several large donations to Democrat's congressional campaigns
A Chinese Communist Party (CCP) employee made several large donations to the congressional campaigns of Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), federal records have revealed.
The bombshell news comes amid calls for Swalwell to be removed from Congress over recent reports of his relationship with a CCP spy.
Last week, Axios published an apparent exposé about Chinese national Fang Fang, aka Christine Fang, who is believed to be a CCP spy who was operating on U.S. soil.
Fang targeted several aspiring politicians from 2011 to 2015, with a reported focus on Swalwell, a former Democratic presidential candidate.
Over the years, the CCP operative reportedly helped raise funding for Swalwell, who is, rather worryingly, a member of the House Intelligence Committee.
The Democrat rep has so far refused to say whether he had a sexual relationship with Fang, arguing that the information is "classified."
Now it has also emerged from Federal Election Commission (FEC) records that, in the years 2014 and 2015, the California Congressman accepted a total of $6,000 from Victoria Li, according to The National Pulse.
Victoria Li is an employee of Air China: A state-owned, Chinese Communist Party-run company.
The airline and has received numerous politically motivated awards from the Chinese Communist Party, boasting the “Great Example of Building ‘Team of Four Highlights’ in National State-owned Enterprises”– on its own website:
Air China’s leadership has been awarded “Great Example of Building ‘Team of Four Highlights’ in National State-owned Enterprises” by the Organization Department of the CPC Central Committee and SAC Party Committee.
On September 29, 2008, the Party Central Committee and the State Council held a grand rally at the Great Hall to conclude the Beijing Olympic Games and Paralympic Games and gave out awards.
Air China was honored as the “Advanced Unit in Beijing Olympics and Paralympics.”
Air China also serves as China’s national flag carrier, responsible for flying party dignitaries domestically and internationally.
Li, who works as a customer service manager for the Chinese government-run company, donated four separate times over the course of one year to Swalwell, who was seeking re-election for a second congressional term.
The Swalwell campaign’s willingness to accept thousands of Chinese Communist Party-derived dollars adds to the growing list of the congressman’s ties to China.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has been among several prominent lawmakers demanding that Swalwell is removed from Congress.
Speaking with Fox News's Laura Ingraham last week, McCarthy urged a full investigation of the issue.
"Why is he still on the Intel Committee?" McCarthy asked.
"Why is he still a member of Congress?"
President Donald Trump's son, Don Jr., also demanded Swalwell's removal during a fiery statement on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show on Tuesday night.
This issue "is truly a national security threat," Trump Jr. noted.
"This man sits on the House Intelligence Committee," he added.
"We also shouldn't be surprised that someone, who basically may have soiled himself on national TV, also allowed his agency and his group to be infiltrated by a Chinese spy."
