“Fake News CNN, relying on all anonymous sources, meaning they probably made the whole thing up, wrote a very dishonest story claiming Congressman Matt Gaetz asked for a meeting with me at Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida, and was denied. This is completely false,” the 45th president said in a statement
“Why doesn’t CNN investigate and write about lightweight Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell, who had a torrid and physical relationship with the Chinese spy Fang-Fang, but is somehow on the once-prestigious House Intelligence Committee,” Trump said. “Swalwell, who ran for President and dropped out with a record-setting 0% in the polls, has been compromised and is a national security threat to the United States — he should be removed from the Committee immediately!”
BIAS EXPOSED! Kayleigh McEnany Calls-Out Media for Ignoring Hunter Biden, Eric Swalwell Scandal
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany called-out the mainstream media Tuesday over their refusal to cover growing scandals surrounding Hunter Biden and Congressman Eric Swalwell.
“McEnany noted that President Trump’s Middle East peace deals haven’t received significant coverage by the mainstream media but told viewers they shouldn’t be surprised at this point,” reports Fox News.
.@PressSec @KayleighMcEnany's closing statement at today's briefing was a #mustwatch, absolutely torching the liberal media's purposeful lack of curiosity and interest in Eric Swalwell's relationship with Chinese spy #FangFang but spent years spinning Trump-Russia lies (1/) pic.twitter.com/vNJ87wg9IB

“In the last 24, 48 hours there have been quite a few stories that have not gotten a ton of coverage in the mainstream media, as former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer said, ‘Bias is often found in the stories the press does not cover,’” McEnany said.
“We found out that Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell was infiltrated by an alleged Chinese spy, this spy cozied up to Swalwell, raised funds for his 2014 campaign and even planted an intern in his office and that relationship continued until the FBI briefed him in 2015, and that was some very good reporting done by Axios,” she said.

DEVELOPING: Dem Rep. Eric Swalwell Caught Up in Suspected China Spy Plot
Sean Hannity weighed-in Wednesday night on an explosive report linking Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell to a Chinese spy; saying Democrats are refusing to hold him responsible.
“An explosive report is revealing Rep. Swalwell’s ties to a Chinese Spy… She reportedly helped place at least one intern in his office,” said Hannity.
“The Congressman’s office declined to comment. Democrats refuse to hold Swalwell accountable for blatant lies even after he spread the Russia hoax for years,” he added.
