Donald Trump Jr. is alleging that California Congressman Eric Swalwell (D) slept with a Chinese spy, despite no apparent legitimate evidence that actually supports this assertion. Donald Jr. raised the claim after Axios released a story outlining the efforts of a woman named Christine Fang to cultivate ties with U.S. politicians while working for Chinese intelligence services — but the story simply does not allege that Swalwell had any kind of physical relationship with the operative. Trump Jr.’s claims are belligerent conjecture, based — apparently — on the Axios detail that Christine Fang did have “romantic or sexual relationships with at least two Midwestern mayors.”

On Twitter, Trump Jr. recently claimed that Swalwell “who spent years saying I was an agent of Russia was literally sleeping with a Chinese spy at the time,” adding: “You can’t make this stuff up” — although that’s exactly what Trump Jr. seems to have done. Again: the Axios story does not allege that Swalwell had a physical relationship with Christine Fang — it simply doesn’t. U.S. intelligence operatives do not appear to be making any similar allegation, at least officially.

In reality, the Axios report states that Christine Fang worked on fundraising for Swalwell’s 2014 re-election campaign — and “around” 2015, “federal investigators… alerted Swalwell to their concerns.” Subsequently, the California Congressman “immediately cut off all ties to Fang, according to a current U.S. intelligence official,” Axios adds. These details are not equivocal or dubious. The time span covered by the story doesn’t even seem to extend to the time when the Trumps were in the presidential spotlight!

In Wednesday Twitter posts, Trump Jr. went all in on claiming that CNN and top Democrats are promoting Chinese interests over those of the United States, but these claims are simply hyperbolic nonsense. Trump Jr. insisted that CNN is “as bad as the Chinese spies at this point,” which is simply ludicrous — and mirrors the president’s own virulent rhetoric. The older Trump has, of course, repeatedly characterized the media as the “enemy of the people.” On Wednesday, Donald Jr. also ridiculously claimed that Chinese authorities “know the democrats are more likely to fight for China’s interests than America’s.” In yet another follow-up post, Donald Jr. insisted that “Mainstream media truly loves China and hates America, just like the democrats,” which is nonsense. Trump Jr.’s villainizing statements sound disturbingly grandiose, as if he’s leading some kind of cult.

Trump Jr. keeps lying.
