(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) -- Rep. Eric Swalwell turned to personal attacks on Republicans as he faces intense scrutiny for his China spy scandal.
The Democratic congressman took jabs at Sen. Ted Cruz and Jason Miller, a top strategist for President Trump's reelection campaign, in a flurry of tweets that began late Thursday. Swalwell did so as he avoids questions about his relationship with Christine Fang, a Chinese national believed to be working with China’s Ministry of State Security.
