Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi dismissed recent allegations regarding Rep. Eric Swalwell and a potential Chinese spy; telling reporters she “doesn’t have any concerns” over a possible national security breach.
“I don’t have any concern about Mr. Swalwell,” Pelosi said Thursday during her weekly news conference.
“In terms of Mr. Swalwell — in the spring of 2015, the leadership of the House and the [Intelligence] Committee were informed that overtures from a Chinese person were being made to members of Congress,” Pelosi said. “When that was made known to the members of Congress, it was over.”

“California Rep. Eric Swalwell on Monday dropped out of the race for his party’s presidential nomination, becoming the first of what’s expected to be many Democrats to give up their presidential aspirations as the crowded field winnows down,” reports Fox News.
“Swalwell, who in recent polls failed to garner even one percent among primary and caucus voters, said he was abandoning his presidential run in favor of focusing on getting reelected to House of Representatives,” adds Fox.
“Being honest with ourselves, we had to look at how much money we were raising and where we were in the polls,” Swalwell said during a news conference at a union hall in Dublin, Calif. “We have to be honest about our candidacy.”
