Rep. Eric Swalwell shares recording of death threat after attack on Marjorie Taylor Greene

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) shared an audio recording Wednesday of a disturbing threat he said he received due to false statements made by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.).

“Marjorie loves to play the victim. But she is an instigator of violence. His constant attacks — even after the FBI said I was never suspected of wrongdoing — led to threatening calls like this,” he tweeted alongside the audio clip. “This caller today threatened to kill my three children.”

In the recording, a man’s voice said, “Hey, little motherfucker. Are you still fucking Chinese spy Fang Fang? … We are coming to your house this weekend. I’m going to get you and those little mutant bastards, your little mutant descendants. We’re gonna get you.

Earlier Wednesday, Swalwell shared a story about an interaction with a supporter of former President Donald Trump that occurred while the congressman was on a tour of the US Capitol. He said a man yelled at him and then said to his son, “It’s Swalwell. He’s in trouble. He does not support Trump.

Green replied to the tweet saying there was “no way this was going to happen”.

“Because we all know good dads who support Trump would say, ‘He’s the Democrat who slept with a Chinese spy,'” she tweeted.

Swalwell has been targeted by right-wing disinformation about his past ties to an alleged Chinese intelligence operative named Fang Fang or Christine Fang.

According to a 2020 Axios report, Fang targeted up-and-coming Bay Area and US politicians, including Swalwell. Fang reportedly attended a fundraising event for Swalwell’s 2014 re-election campaign and recommended an intern for his office.

Federal investigators said they alerted Swalwell to their concerns in 2015 and he immediately cut all ties with Fang, Axios reported. He has not been charged with any wrongdoing or with passing on classified information.

Fang allegedly had sex with at least two Midwestern mayors. Swalwell has not been accused of having sex with her.
