U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., is perhaps known primarily for his failed attacks on President Trump, after having served as manager of one of ex-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s two failed attempts to impeach and remove Trump from office.
And, of course, he’s famous for what commentators have called an illicit relationship with a suspected Chinese spy, Christine Fang, with BizPacReview described the failure as his falling victim “to a CCP honeytrap.”
Thirdly, there was that odd sound during a live television interview that left radio disc jockeys howling with laughter:
Now he has a new agenda.
He wants to ban President Donald Trump from ever entering the U.S. Capitol again.
The BizPacReview report said Swalwell “continues to prove to anyone still paying attention that he’s not a serious person.”
The report noted that Swalwell, removed from the House Intelligence Committee when Republicans took control of the lower chamber, is pushing a plan from U.S. Rep. Nikema Williams, D-Ga., to put the restriction in place.
Swalwell is the only sponsor to date.
“[W]hen the village nearly burns down, we don’t invite the arsonist back to visit. Duh,” he complained on social media.
The suggestion says: “The Sergeant at Arms of the House of Representatives, the Sergeant at Arms and Doorkeeper of the Senate, and the United States Capitol Police shall take such actions as may be necessary to prohibit President Donald John Trump, Steve Bannon, Mark Meadows, Dan Scavino, Peter Navarro, Jeffrey Clark, John Eastman, Kenneth Cheseboro, and Rudy Giuliani from entering the United States Capitol.”
The resolution falsely claims that “five law enforcement officers” died during the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol by those who believed there to be fraud in the 2020 election results.
After he was booted from the House Intel committee, he jumped in front of cameras to claim the move inspired “death threats.”
“People parrot what Kevin McCarthy is saying when they call and make the threats,” Swalwell said. “He knows that. We’ve told this to him. I have told this to him. I have, you know, publicly broadcast to him that when you do this, it leads to threats to me, my wife, our kids.”
