Chinese State Media Defends Eric Swalwell, Claims Chinese Spy Report Is ‘Complete Fiction’

Chinese state-run media is claiming an Axios report alleging a Chinese spy developed extensive ties with Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) is “complete fiction.”

Global Times, a Communist Chinese Party-controlled media outlet, published a report recently that claimed Axios’ report was “a tale cooked up” to “poison China-US relations,” citing a “source.”

The Chinese outlet falsely reported that Swalwell “denied the accusations.” The Global Times’ December 21 report stated: “One California politician Axios named was California Congressman Eric Swalwell, who denied the accusations and noted the report was political retaliation for his criticism and impeachment of the incumbent president.”

In fact, Swalwell has not denied developing extensive ties with the suspected Chinese spy, Christine Fang, also known as Fang Fang. The two reportedly met in 2011, when Swalwell was a council member in Dublin City, California, and Fang was living in California as an international student. Fang would act as a campaign bundler for Swalwell and placed at least one intern in his congressional offices.
