Don’t you love it when people get their comeuppance?
While I don’t believe in karma, I do believe that we get back what we put out. Good begets good, bad begets bad, and so on.
And that’s something that California Congressman Eric Swalwell is finding out the hard way.
Before we get into the nitty-gritty, let’s talk about how the Left oftentimes takes a page out of the Nazi playbook, following the lead of people like Joseph Goebbels.
One thing proves true about the Left time after time: they often get caught doing the very things they accuse others of doing.
It’s really kind of fascinating, and it’s happened so often that we almost don’t even notice it anymore.
For example, the Left accused Trump of conspiring with the Russian government to win the 2016 election…but what we found out later was that it was actually Hillary Clinton and the DNC, via former British spy Christopher Steele, who worked with the Russians to try and get opposition research on Donald Trump.
This is proven and beyond contestation.
However, the fact that they then accused Trump of collusion when they were actually colluding themselves shows you just how easy it is for these people to hide their duplicitous nature.
We watched that play out over four years of Trump’s presidency, and to this day, Russian collusion is still an accusation they lay upon him, even though the Mueller report proved there was no collusion form the former president.
Accuse Others Of What YOU’RE Doing
But while they play this tactic all the time, it’s not always caught right away.
Leftists are pretty good at hiding their tracks…but every once in a while, they get sloppy and leave a trail that’s too obvious to ignore.
Eric Swalwell, so far, has two claims to infamy.
First, was the time he passed gas on live TV and then denied it…
And the second was when he fell for Chinese “honeytrap” spy Fang Fang while he was a sitting Congressman.
The second is obviously the worse offense, but even knowing this guy isn’t smart enough to smell a rat in his own house, he was still given responsibilities in our legislature that should be reserved for people with unblemished records.
He was put in charge of Trump’s first impeachment process, during which he accused the president of “betrayal” over the Ukraine phone call, and then after the Capitol Riot, he sued Trump for “emotional distress.”
You would think that somebody with the credentials to hold so much power in DC would be pretty good at keeping his nose clean…
But Swalwell isn’t one of those people.
He just got caught red-handed spending THOUSANDS of Democratic campaign dollars at the hotel where his wife worked.
If you remember, it was Swalwell and other Democrats that made a big stink about Trump making government officials pay for rooms at his Trump hotels when they stayed there…and here’s Swalwell, getting caught doing EXACTLY what he accused Trump of doing.
Maybe people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
Swalwell Caught With Hand In The Cookie Jar
Fang Fang’s main squeeze spent more than $20,000 in campaign funds at the hotel where his wife, Brittany Swalwell, worked, paying for rooms, booze, and limo services, according to FEC filings.
The report indicates that Swalwell spent LOTS of donor money at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay, California, where his wife was the director of sales.
And if that’s not enough, he ended up plopping down $7,000 at restaurants and steakhouses in DC during the second quarter of 2021.
That adds up to just 13 meals and however many drinks he and his party ordered.
And on top of all that, Money Bags Swalwell dropped another $10,000 on 26 trips with limousine and luxury car services like he’s some kind of celebrity.
This is an elected official.
This is what they do.
Our government representatives live high on the hog while collecting a salary at the taxpayers’ expense, but then they don’t spend any of it…
They use “campaign” funds instead.
However, odds are good that he won’t get in any REAL trouble. He may get some kind of public slap on the wrist and maybe make an apology—but he won’t have his feet held to the fire by his constituents or the media.
He’ll skate on by…and nobody will remember this in 2022 when it comes time to re-elect this low-class human being.
This is politics in 2021,
