Marjorie Taylor Greene Says Eric Swalwell Learned From 'Chinese Spy Girlfriend'

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has attacked Eric Swalwell, saying the Californian Democratic Congressman learned a lot from his "Chinese spy girlfriend." Her words came after Swalwell was accused by Donald Trump ally Mo Brooks of being behind a team that allegedly broke into his house to serve a complaint to his wife.

"@ericswalwell your team unlawfully snuck in @MoBrooks house? You really did learn a lot from Fang Fang, your Chinese spy girlfriend. Alabama judges aren't as forgiving as Pelosi," Green tweeted on Sunday night.

Alabama GOP Rep. Brooks took to Twitter on Sunday to complain about Swalwell, who has vowed for months to serve Brooks with a lawsuit for his alleged role in the Capitol riot. However, Brooks has been hard to find, and the Swalwell even hired a private investigator to track down the Alabama lawmaker and Senate candidate.

On Sunday, Brooks tweeted: "@EricSwalwell Well, Swalwell FINALLY did his job, served complaint (on my WIFE). HORRIBLE Swalwell's team committed a CRIME by unlawfully sneaking INTO MY HOUSE & accosting my wife! Alabama Code 13A-7-2: 1st degree criminal trespass. Year in jail. $6000 fine. More to come!"

Swalwell has long claimed he is considering filing criminal trespassing charges against the California congressman, who has for months has tried to track down the evasive Trump ally and Senate candidate. Last week, the Democrat had to request a 60-day extension from a federal judge after failing to locate Brooks for several months.

Swalwell's lawsuit alleges that Brooks, Trump and several GOP political allies including personal attorney Rudy Giuliani were "responsible for the injury and destruction" that took place during the January 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C. The lawsuit primarily revolves around speeches given by Brooks and the other defendants at rallies just prior to the January 6 attacks, which ended up leaving five people dead.

"Today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass," Brooks told a crowd outside the White House on the day of the riot. The lawmaker went on to discuss how his ancestors "sacrificed their blood" to create the freedoms Americans know today.

"The horrific events of January 6 were a direct and foreseeable consequence of the defendants' unlawful actions," the lawsuit alleges, citing civil rights laws. "As such, the defendants are responsible for the injury and destruction that followed."

Swalwell attorney Philip Adonian told Forbes on Sunday that Brooks' allegation of trespassing and accosting his wife are "utterly false." The individual who served the lawsuit "did not enter the house...and lawfully handed the paper to Mo Brooks' wife at their home", the lawyer said.

Newsweek has contacted Brooks for comment, as well as Swalwell and Greene's team.

Brooks is running for Alabama Senator Richard Shelby's seat.

Brooks has long backed the former president's unproven claims of "voter fraud" in the November general election, which he lost to Democratic rival Joe Biden.
