Eric Swalwell’s dip in the honeypot | Spectator USA

The irony in all this is that Swalwell was one of the most vocal proponents of the Russiagate conspiracy, which alleged that President Donald Trump and his 2016 campaign had conspired with the Russians to steal the election. He claimed the House Intelligence Committee found ‘strong evidence’ of collusion, even though Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s years-long investigation did not find enough evidence to support that charge. When challenged on this statement by the Trump campaign, Swalwell dared the President to ‘sue me’. Cockburn wonders if Swalwell wasn’t dealing with a strong case of projection, given his own relationship with a foreign agent had been foiled by the FBI the same year Trump began running for President.

It appears there was ‘strong evidence’ that he was far more compromised than the President. This is especially disturbing given Swalwell is a member of the House Intelligence Committee, which has access to all kinds of confidential and classified information. Did any state secrets unwittingly get passed along to his foreign friend? What exactly was the nature of their relationship? The Axios story and Swalwell’s response to it isn’t clear on any of this.

"He appeared to get misty with emotion at his pandemic news performance announcing his personal holiday travel plans that had become magically definitive overnight, along with his new statewide social distance restrictions that shut down entire industries, youth sports and even museums."

Almost caught one of dem liberals with the evidence but there must have been a conspiracy to free him:


Ex-Houston officer accused of assault in bogus fraud claim




This undated photo provided by the Houston Police Department shows Mark Aguirre. Aguirre is an ex-Houston police officer who was arrested on Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2020, for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for an incident on Oct. 19 in which he pulled over an air conditioning repairman and held him at gunpoint believing the man had 750,000 fraudulent mail-in ballots in the back of his truck. Police say there were no ballots in the truck, only air conditioning parts and tools. (Houston Police Department via AP)
HOUSTON (AP) — A former Houston police captain was charged with assault on Tuesday after running a man off the road and holding him at gunpoint in an effort to prove what authorities have called a bogus voter fraud scheme.
Mark Aguirre claimed that an air conditioner repairman was the mastermind of a giant voter fraud scheme. Aguirre said the man’s truck was filled with fraudulent ballots when he ran his SUV into it on Oct. 19, according to authorities.
“The defendant stated (the driver) has approximately seven hundred and fifty thousand fraudulent mail ballots and is using Hispanic children to sign the ballots because the children’s fingerprints would not appear in any databases,” according to an arrest affidavit.
Aguirre told police he and some friends set up a “command post” at a Marriott hotel in suburban Houston and conducted 24-hour surveillance on the repairman for four days, according to the affidavit. He said he then ran the man’s truck off the road, pointed a gun at him, forced him onto the ground and put a knee on his back, the affidavit said.

Police who responded to the incident searched the truck and found only air conditioning parts and tools, authorities said. Authorities did not name the truckdriver, who was not hurt.
“A lengthy investigation ... determined allegations of election fraud were unfounded and no evidence of illegal ballots was found,” Houston police said.
Aguirre told a police officer at the scene, “I just hope you’re a patriot,” according to the affidavit.
Lt. Wayne Rubio with the Texas Attorney General’s Office later told police that Aguirre had asked his office to conduct a traffic stop for his investigation and when Rubio said he couldn’t do that, Aguirre said he would do it himself and “make a citizen’s arrest,” according to the affidavit.
Aguirre, 63, has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Court records did not list an attorney for Aguirre.
If convicted, Aguirre faces up to 20 years in prison. Police have not identified any other suspects.
Police say Aguirre was paid $266,400 by Houston-based Liberty Center for God and Country, a nonprofit organization that is run by GOP party activist Dr. Steven Hotze.
A conservative power broker, Hotze unsuccessfully sued to stop the extension of early voting in Texas for this year’s election. He also sued officials in Harris County, where Houston is located, to limit in-person and absentee voting, making allegations without evidence that Democrats were engaged in “ballot harvesting” by gathering votes from individuals who are homeless or elderly.
Allegations by President Donald Trump and others of massive voter fraud have been refuted by several judges, state election officials, an arm of his own administration’s Homeland Security Department and Attorney General William Barr.
Hotze was also part of a group of individuals who unsuccessfully tried to challenge the legality of drive-thru voting in Harris County.
Jared Woodfill, an attorney for Hotze, said Liberty Center had employed Aguirre’s company and around 20 investigators who were looking into allegations of voter fraud during the election.
Woodfill said he doesn’t know if Aguirre was working on the investigation at the time of the alleged assault, but that Liberty Center doesn’t approve of such tactics.
“We would never endorse that, saying go pull someone over, put a gun up to their head and make them open up their truck,” he said.
Woodfill said he would be “surprised if the allegations were true. That seems out of character for any of the people that would be working under Liberty Center.”
Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said Aguirre’s actions “crossed the line from dirty politics to commission of a violent crime.”
“We are lucky no one was killed,” Ogg said. “His alleged investigation was backward from the start — first alleging a crime had occurred and then trying to prove it happened.”
Aguirre was fired from the Houston Police Department in 2003 after a botched raid in which nearly 300 people were arrested in a crackdown on illegal street racing. Most who were arrested were not linked to street racing and charges were dropped. Aguirre was tried and acquitted on five counts of official oppression.

Leftist Hypocrisy

One accuser of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh is to be believed, despite the accuser having no recollection of the actual events 30+ years ago,

Yet....

Multiple accusers of sexual assault against Virginia Lt Gov Justin Fairfax are not to believed. They just made it up.

No investigations. Just move along.

A good read, even for those of us that despise Hollywood. It's amazing how leftists like Kimmel, Fallon, VA Gov Northam can all get away with wearing blackface, but when Megan Kelly mentioned it in the terms of being used for certain Halloween costumes? Instant cancelation. Whoopi was offended. But wait...Didn't she date Ted Danson in 1993 when he wore blackface? True hypocrisy.


From the article
"The reasoning here is complicated, but there’s one element that ties all these cases together.

President Donald J. Trump."

Not too long ago you had to read the story to see that it contradicted the headline. Now with self-contradicting teasers it saves time. What is it Yahoo: "no chance", "possible", or "unlikely"? As professionals, do you ever read the illiterate junk you throw out there?

Just a kid from Scranton.
Who's spent the last 47 years lining his pockets, and those of his family, at our expense. How is it a politician manages to have multiple, million dollar, homes? Comrade Sanders is another prime example, but even worse with the Socialism/Marxism he spews.
