Sen. Ted Cruz took a big swipe at Rep. Eric Swalwell after it was discovered that he may have had a relationship with a suspected Chinese spy who served as one of his campaign bundlers.
“More than once, I’ve said ‘screw the Chinese communists,’”Cruz tweeted. “Little did I know how closely Swalwell was listening.”
Now that’s funny, I don’t care who you are.
More than once, I’ve said “screw the Chinese communists.”
Little did I know how closely Swalwell was listening.

It was reported earlier this week that Christine Fang, a Chinese national suspected to be working with China’s Ministry of State Security, conducted political operations on behalf of the Chinese government and that Swalwell was one of her “most significant targets.”
The controversy, largely ignored by news organizations, has been dismissed by Swalwell, who suggested the accusation is politically motivated, and by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who said she does not have “any concerns” about the story.Advertisement - story continues below
Conservatives on Twitter responded positively to Cruz’s tweet, which was retweeted over 45,000 times in less than 24 hours.

And there are liberals who think conservatives don’t have a sense of humor? Get out of town.
Cruz has every right to come out swinging against Swalwell. Especially since his act of fornication may have compromised our national security and provided the Chinese Communist Party with top secret intelligence.
As a result of this connection, Swalwell should be removed from the House Intelligence Committee and his clearance revoked.
