Congressman Eric Swalwell is now accusing President Donald Trump of being behind the bombshell report that exposed his close connection to an alleged Chinese Spy.

According to a report by Axios that was released on Monday, Swalwell, who is a member of the House Intelligence Committee, was targeted by a Chinese national named Fang Fang — aka Christina Fang — an alleged operative for China’s Ministry of State Security, which is the country’s intelligence organization.

Fang first interacted with Swalwell in the early stages of his political career when he served on the Dublin City Council in California, and right before being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2012.

Fang went on to be involved with raising money for Swalwell’s reelection campaign, according to the report, and even helped place an intern in the congressman’s office.

Swalwell cut off contact with Fang in 2015 after U.S. intelligence officials provided a “defensive briefing” to him in regards to Fang’s activities that they had been monitoring, according to the report.

While Swalwell and his office refuse to comment on the extent of his relationship with the alleged Chinese spy, Axios reported that Fang had “romantic or sexual relationships” with at least two elected officials, who were mayors at the time of their encounters with Fang.

When pressed by Politico to comment on the report, Swalwell said he is convinced that President Trump is behind the timing of the report’s release, and he suspects it was done to hurt him politically in retaliation for his criticism and actions taken against the President.

“I’ve been a critic of the president. I’ve spoken out against him. I was on both committees that worked to impeach him. The timing feels like that should be looked at,” Swalwell told Politico.

He added: “What it appears though that this person — as the story reports — was unsuccessful in whatever they were trying to do. But if intelligence officials are trying to weaponize someone’s cooperation, they are essentially seeking to do what this person was not able to do, which is to try and discredit someone.”

In response, former DNI Richard Grenell hit Swalwell with a humiliating one-liner when he tweeted, “He who smelt it, dealt it.”

Grenell’s zinger killed two birds with one stone, as it likely referenced the time Swalwell appeared to pass gas on live TV, and is a classic metaphor for the stench that now arises from the Democrat congressman’s close ties to a suspected Chinese agent.

Grenell went on to call on the intel community to brief the Gang of Eight on Swalwell’s ties to the alleged spy.

Congressman Doug Collins called on Swalwell to step down from the House Intelligence Committee after learning of Axios’ report:
