Rep. Swalwell Makes Stunning Admission About Russia Spying

(Right Country) – You wouldn’t know it from the mainstream media cycle, but the house of cards that is Obamagate has all fallen apart.

Information about just how deep the administration was involved in spying on candidate Trump ahead of the 2020 election has been trickling out for years, but the other shoe is very, very close to dropping.

Of course, now that it is abundantly obvious that the Obama intelligence agencies were spying on the Trump campaign, the left is trying to cover their rears more than ever.

They’re flipping the script, changing the narrative, all to try to justify this historically gross abuse of power.

Failed presidential candidate Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) may have just overdone it a bit, however.

Not only did the congressman admit the FBI spies on the Trump campaign…he’s defending it!

No, seriously.

Fox News reports:

Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., reacted to the revelation that an FBI agent involved in the “Crossfire Hurricane” Russia investigation “actively listened” for certain topics during a briefing on election interference given to the Trump campaign in August 2016, saying “they were right to do it.”

“I hope they do it if a Democratic candidate ever does that with any country,” Swalwell said Friday on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.” “So, Martha, remember right before this meeting occurred, candidate Trump said, ‘Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you have Hillary’s emails.’ And what do they do? They actually did it. So think about it.”

Fox News obtained a document that reflects type-written notes by FBI agent Joe Pientka after an August 17, 2016 briefing to then-candidate Donald Trump, Michael Flynn and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie “in support of ODNI briefings provided to U.S. Presidential candidates and two of their advisors.”

The briefing, which was held at the FBI’s New York Field Office, also included a “13-minute defensive briefing” delivered by Pientka. The document states that FBI officials Kevin Clinesmith and Peter Strzok “approved” Pientka’s notes.

Swalwell slammed Trump and accused the president of lying about being briefed.

“By the way, he says in the meeting, ‘Joe, are the Russians bad?’ It’s like, yes, the Russians are bad and don’t eat glue,” Swalwell said. “Like, should we even have to tell you that? … He told the country for years, but he was never given this briefing.”

When MacCallum pressed Swalwell, he doubled-down on his claims that Trump had, in fact, conspired with Russia.


“So President Trump was under investigation. Jim Comey said he was not. He said that to Congress under oath,” MacCallum asked. “So the president was indeed under investigation.”

“What would you want a counterintelligence official to do when the president is asking the Russians to hack and they’re actually hacking,” Swalwell said.

“I hope they look into him. I hope if Joe Biden was doing this with any other foreign country that is seeking to influence our elections that the FBI would look into it, thankfully they did not but that’s kind of their job.”

When MacCallum continued to challenge Swalwell, noting that Trump had not been aware of the briefing, the congressman just flipped the script.

He defended the bureau’s actions!

“He’s given pictures and graphs now because he doesn’t have the attention span to listen,” the congressman declared.


  1. I thought Swalwell had Proof as did Mr Adam Shifty. they are so full of B.S their eyes have turned Brownish.Sorry brown eye people (include me mine are pretty clear brown). Now days u have to be careful what u say somebody is going to take it a different waythen u meant it

  2. On another topic; rioting in our streets has been going on for two months now. These are not peaceful protests…..this is a nationwide rebellion…an insurrection. The Democrats have done this several times before in our history, most notably as the entity called the Confederacy. That had to be stamped out in a violent 4 year war. It is time to realize that this will not be stopped except by the unfortunate shedding of blood. The National Guard must be called out and this rebellion must be crushed NOW. I hate the thought of Americans harming other Americans but it is and always has been part of the democrat playbook….they want to establish a dictatorship. All one needs to do is look around to see that what they are doing is dystopian. So, if this is not dealt with and speedily then I fear our nation will cease to exist.

    • RD, you are so correct. I have been saying exactly that all along. I’m at odds with my family for voicing my feeling that there will need to be force to stop this. The thing that most worries me however, is the total grip that the MSM has on these misguided fools. Them, along with the do nothing dems are the ones responsible for the creation of this Frankenstein monster. I see no other way of killing the beast that has morphed out of the heinous murder of George Floyd, whose memory has long ago gone from the left’s consciousness.

      God help us and God save our Republic.

  3. Yes sometimes a show of force is necessary and this is definitely one. You can’t let a bully get away with this kind of intimidation if you strike back they stop. This is totally ridiculous what is going on in Democrat run cities and states, send in the military. I never would have thought the disrespect for the law would ever get to this level and the lack of respect for the police is absolutely absurd and uncalled for.
