(LibertySociety.com) – Far-left progressive Congressman Eric Swalwell, D-CA, has been working hard to push back against former president Donald Trump and his allies. According to a report from Fox News, Reps. Swalwell and Nikema Williams, D-GA, have brought forward a resolution to prevent former President Trump, his former aides, attorneys, as well as Mark Meadows, a former congressman and chief of staff during the Trump administration, from stepping foot into the Capitol ever again.
The resolution also includes Jeffrey Clark, the former Assistant Attorney General of the United States, and Rudy Giuliani, the former Mayor of New York City and personal attorney for former President Trump. Swalwell and Williams say that all of these people attempted to “undermine and overturn the 2020 presidential election,” requesting that the Sergeant at Arms, along with the Capitol Police take this action. Rep. Swalwell has been criticized by Trump for his ties to a member of the Chinese Communist Party, Fang Fang, who worked for him for many years and reportedly helped him with his political endeavors.
Newly elected Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, removed Swalwell from his position on the Intelligence Committee in January 2023 due to his ties with the suspected Chinese spy. Lawmakers have been calling for his removal since his relationship with Fang Fang was discovered, but former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, refused to take action after being briefed by the FBI on the matter. When Swalwell was removed from the Intelligence Committee, he denied any wrongdoing and said he believed the decision was an act of “political vengeance.”
