Donald Trump Jr. took to his toxic Twitter account to troll Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), but it didn’t go down well for the twice-impeached one-term President’s son. Junior referred to a Chinese spy named Christine Fang, who developed extensive ties with local and national politicians, including Swalwell. At the time, the California Democrat’s office released a statement to Axios, saying that he spoke about Fang with the FBI.
“Rep. Swalwell, long ago, provided information about this person — whom he met more than eight years ago, and whom he hasn’t seen in nearly six years — to the FBI. To protect information that might be classified, he will not participate in your story,” the statement read.
Swalwell immediately severed ties with Fang, but Republicans love bringing it up anyway, and that’s what Don Jr. did on Twitter. I suppose he thinks he’s being edgy. The former President’s son just threw this out there:
You think China targeted Swalwell because he’s so “effective” or because they thought he was a moron?

Swalwell addressed Junior’s tweet.
Why did Russia target you? Probably not for coke.

Here’s what I want to know: When the FBI went to the Trump campaign in August, 2016 and warned them about possible Russian interference, did they say, “Oh yeah, Junior already met with them”? Seriously, what did they say?

Junior must be the least self-aware person in the world. He’s an absolute moron with an apparent drug problem, calling other people a moron. Oh, and the moron is defying a subpoena. And he’s engaged to a woman who offers lap dances to GOP donors. I could do this all day.
