Representative Eric Swalwell is not a man you would want to go into battle with. He doesn’t exactly strike fear in his opponents and has proven that he can be duped by attractive Chinese spies and shrivels like a flower in heat.
Swalwell is now suing former President Trump…for, wait for it…emotional distress.
And to think that Swalwell ran for president last year. Thank God he didn’t win! Can you imagine him standing up to China or Iran? One threat from them would have caused him to go hide under the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office.
The Washington Times reported that “Rep. Eric Swalwell sued former President Donald Trump on Friday for emotional distress following the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, seeking financial damages.
The California Democrat claimed in a 65-page complaint that the 45th president was responsible for inciting the assault and was negligent in his official duties as president to prevent and stop the deadly protest.”
‘In claiming for weeks that President Biden’s victory was in fact the largest act of fraud in American history; in seeing that some of Trump’s supporters were willing to engage in violence in response to such claims; and in using highly inflammatory language in repeating the false claims of fraud at the rally before sending the crowd to the Capitol, the Defendants at a minimum acted negligently,” read the complaint.”
Liberal men are so soft. Grow a spine. Yes, what happened on January 6 was terrible, and obviously it was a distressing day for members of Congress.
However, suing the former president of the United States for the attack—for which he was not responsible, as determined by his impeachment trial—is just weak. Talk about being a beta male. Too many beta males in the country…far too many.
“But poor Eric,” you might say. “Take it easy on the guy…his Chinese spy girlfriend Fang Fang, fled the country to get away from him. He needs some sympathy.”
Where is Fang Fang, anyway?
As you may recall, Representative Swalwell recently linked to a proven Chinese spy who fled the country and hasn’t been heard from since. Despite being played like a fiddle by a foreign enemy, Swalwell remains a member on the Intelligence committee.
According to the Washington Times, “Fang Fang (also known as Christine) who the FBI says was a spy for the Chinese government who cultivated relationships — several of which were intimate — with rising Democratic politicians across the United States.
She vanished, apparently back behind the Bamboo Curtain about five years ago. Mr. Swalwell’s still around though — and still a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.”
Add to that the drama stemming from the Capitol Riot, and things don’t look too good for Swalwell.
Democrats have overdramatized their emotional distress stemming from the Capitol Hill riots for political purposes. It goes without saying that it was a terrible day for the country, but they need to stop using their emotional state as a way to garner sympathy to push their radical agenda.
They aren’t fooling anyone.
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has followed the same playbook and exaggerated the threat she faced on January 6.
The New York Post reported, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is being dubbed “Alexandria Ocasio-Smollett” as details emerge that she exaggerated the extent of her “trauma” from the Capitol riot, given that she was not at the site of the siege, but in an office building nearby.
In the four weeks since the riot, Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has said repeatedly that she feared for her life on Jan. 6, as a result of a “very close encounter.’
Ocasio-Cortez was in her office, which is located in the Cannon building, when rioters stormed the Capitol. The building is part of the overall Capitol complex, but is not within the Capitol building itself.
She had been barricaded in her office for hours when a man who turned out to be a Capitol Police officer rushed into her office to direct her to a safer location for lawmakers.
The problem with her story, however, is that rioters did not storm the building in question, which was confirmed by Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), who tweeted, ‘My office is 2 doors down. Insurrectionists never stormed our hallway.’”
Trauma is a real issue, and if members of Congress are struggling with PTSD, then they should seek help with a psychologist or counselor. Mental heath is important and I am not belittling the importance of pursuing it.
However, spare us the crocodile tears that are meant to elicit sympathy to assuage your ego, members of Congress. We aren’t here to stroke your ego. Shut up and do your job!
