Swalwell Fumes Gets Roasted By Ted Cruz After Bet

Rep. Eric "Fang Fang" Swalwell tried to humiliate Senator Ted Cruz by making make a bet with him over the upcoming 49ers-Cowboys game.

“If the @dallascowboys beat the @49ers I won’t tweet for the rest of January. If the @49ers win you can’t tweet for rest of January. How Texan are you, Ted? Deal?” he wrote.

Cruz responded, “How about we bet a Chinese dinner instead?”

That's savage. You know the Congressman was fuming after that.

Cruz was referring to the report that Swalwell had a relationship with a woman who turned out to be a CCP spy and fled the USA in 2015.

From Fox News:

The “Chinese dinner” zinger was a reference to a controversy Swalwell got wrapped up in a few years ago with a Chinese national named Fang Fang or Christine Fang. Intelligence officials told Axios at the time that Fang used campaign fundraising, networking, rallies and romantic relationships with at least two Midwestern mayors to gain proximity to political power.

Fang reportedly took part in fundraising for Swalwell’s 2014 re-election campaign, although she did not make donations nor was there evidence of illegal contributions.

According to Axios, investigators became so alarmed by Fang’s behavior and activities they alerted Swalwell in 2015 to their concerns and gave him a “defensive briefing.” Swalwell then cut off all ties with Fang and has not been accused of any wrongdoing, according to an official who spoke to the outlet.

Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy has also stated that based on what he knows about the incident he isn't letter Swalwell near any committee.

“What I am doing with the Intel Committee [is] bringing it back to the jurisdiction it’s supposed to do. Forward-looking to keep this country safe, keep the politics out of it,” the California Republican told the media Thursday, according to a report from the Hill. “So yes, I’m doing exactly what we’re supposed to do.”

“If you got the briefing I got from the FBI, you wouldn’t have Swalwell on any committee,” the speaker said.
