Rand Paul: Eric Swalwell ‘Ought To Just Resign From Congress’ for ‘Sleeping With A Chinese Spy’

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky said that Congressman Eric Swalwell of California should resign from Congress on Wednesday after details emerged of his relationship with a woman who is likely a Chinese spy.

Paul told Fox News host Sandra Smith, “I think, to be careful and to [be] cautious, he should actually resign from the intelligence committee.

If he’s not willing to do that, he should be removed from the intelligence committee,” Paul continued. “But I also think that — what hypocrisy! This is a guy who was hurling stones and accusations, all kinds of false accusations at President Trump. ‘Oh, he’s controlled by spies,’ and this and that. He was the most over-the-top critic of President Trump on Russia collusion, and it turns out he’s sleeping with a Chinese spy.

I mean, my goodness, the hypocrisy! It’s appalling, and he really should be red-faced and ashamed of himself, and really probably ought to just resign from Congress.

So far, 17 of Swalwell’s colleagues in the House of Representatives have requested that Swalwell be removed from the intelligence committee.
