Eric Swalwell’s hit piece in the Atlantic is what you’d expect from a no-talent back-bench bomb-thrower. He went into this election season as a nobody. Nothing has changed. As always, Trey Gowdy puts it best during this interview with Martha McCallum:

But I digress. Now onto Rep. Swalwell’s hit piece. This paragraph is particularly revealing of Rep. Swalwell’s (lack of) character:

The president continues to betray America, putting his own interests ahead of our country’s. His statement that he would accept a foreign power’s offer of information harmful to an electoral rival, and probably not inform the FBI of such an effort, shouldn’t be shocking—because he already did it.

Here’s what President Trump actually said:

There’s no doubt that President Trump said that, if you’re a congressman and a foreign operative offers said congressman dirt on the congressman’s opponent, that they wouldn’t necessarily call the FBI. When Stephanopoulos brought up Al Gore calling the FBI, Trump immediately highlighted the fact that Gore had just received a stolen briefing book. A crime had been committed. Of course, you’re obligated to report federal crimes to the FBI.

There’s also no doubt that President Trump, when posed with a hypothetical question on getting dirt from a foreign operative, said “Maybe you do both”, meaning he’d listen to what the operative said and he’d call the FBI, depending on the content. I’m not a constitutional scholar but I’m fairly certain that isn’t what the Founding Fathers meant when they talked about high crimes and misdemeanors.

Keep fighting, Eric. If you do, perhaps you’ll achieve what Joe Biden already has. Biden has gotten a nickname of “1% Joe” from President Trump. How appropriate.
