House impeachment manager Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) told the San Francisco Chronicle that he is ready for a return to bipartisanship, after he played a leading role in two successive, and failed, efforts to impeach President Donald Trump.
In 2019, Swalwell was part of the House Intelligence Committee’s shadowy inquiry into the president, much of which took place behind closed doors. At one point, Swalwell lied about what a witness had said about Trump having broken the law.
In 2021, Swalwell joined Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) in presenting the case against Trump during the Senate impeachment trial. He was accused by Trump’s lawyers of having falsified evidence, after presenting a tweet that had been doctored.
In addition, Swalwell has been linked to an alleged Chinese spy named Christine Fang, or Fang Fang. He has declined to answer questions about his personal relationship with her. He remains on the House Intelligence Committee,
