Politico has a story up about Eric Swalwell’s claim that the information about his connections with an apparent Chinese spy was leaked to hurt him because of his criticism of President Donald Trump. Maybe it was. If so, the leaker did it brilliantly by placing the story with an outlet like Axios where it would have more credibility than at a right wing website.
Swalwell has tried to spin it as old news and unimportant, but he hasn’t denied what was reported by Axios.
If I were a denizen of The Swamp, I might be concerned about what might be leaked or officially declassified between now and 12 noon ET, 20 January, 2021.
