Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Corners Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) – Watch
Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia put on a show during a House Homeland Security Committee hearing on Wednesday, grilling Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas about the Biden administration’s handling of the border crisis.
But it was Greene’s comments about Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., that really got people talking. Greene accused Swalwell of having a sexual relationship with a Chinese spy, and she demanded that Mayorkas investigate the matter.
Swalwell has denied the allegations, and there is no evidence to suggest that he is guilty of any wrongdoing. But Greene’s comments have raised serious questions about Swalwell’s judgment and his fitness to serve in Congress.
Greene is a controversial figure, but she is also a rising star in the Republican Party. She is a staunch conservative who is not afraid to speak her mind. And she is clearly not afraid to go after her political opponents.
Swalwell is a member of the House Intelligence Committee, and he has been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump. He is also a potential 2020 presidential candidate.
The allegations against Swalwell are serious, and they could have a significant impact on his political career. If they are true, it would be a major scandal. And if they are false, it would be a major embarrassment for Greene.
Only time will tell what the truth is about Swalwell’s relationship with the Chinese spy. But one thing is for sure: Greene’s comments have put the spotlight on this issue, and they are sure to be debated for weeks to come.
Greene’s comments are a sign of the growing divide within the Republican Party. The party is increasingly split between its establishment wing and its more populist wing. Greene is a member of the populist wing, and she is a rising star in that movement.
The establishment wing of the Republican Party is concerned about Greene’s comments. They worry that she is alienating moderate voters and that she is damaging the party’s reputation.
The populist wing of the Republican Party is supportive of Greene’s comments. They believe that she is speaking truth to power and that she is standing up for the interests of the American people.
GREENE: "That was quite entertaining from someone that had a sexual relationship with a Chinese spy. And everyone knows it!"
