(SNews) – Republican Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has put Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) in his place with a brutal takedown on social media.
Greene and Swalwell went back and forth over the new Pentagon leaker.
Swalwell accused Greene of siding with “traitors” because she defended the leaker.
Greene argues that the American people have an absolute right to know what the government is up to.
The congresswoman said: “The Biden Admin and Pentagon have been caught lying about the war they are funding and fighting against Russia in Ukraine, but they are in full spin mode blaming low level 21 yr old National Guardsman, Jake Teixeira, while they are ginning up full government censorship.
“While yes, leaking classified documents is serious, many are calling Jake Teixeira a hero for pulling back the flimsy transparent curtain and revealing what we suspected all along.
“Criticism about who can be trusted with national intelligence need to ask themselves that question again.
“Who do you trust with critical information that affects the safety of our nation and our very own lives?
“Those that know the information yet stay silent and continue to unconstitutionally engage in a war, risking killing us all in WWIII, but do nothing to stop it or correct the wrongs?
“Do you truly trust the government that much? ‘It’s to keep you safe,’ they say.
“I’m very glad Republicans on the Foreign Affairs Committee passed my Resolution to audit Ukraine.
“Jake Teixeira is white, male, christian, and antiwar,” Greene said.
“That makes him an enemy to the Biden regime.
“And he told the truth about troops being on the ground in Ukraine and a lot more.
“Ask yourself who is the real enemy?
“A young low-level national guardsmen?
“Or the administration that is waging war in Ukraine, a non-NATO nation, against nuclear Russia without war powers?”
Swalwell said: “McCarthy’s top lieutenant is siding with one of the biggest traitors America has seen.
“I’m sorry, Marge, being white, male, and Christian is not license to betray your country and put the lives of thousands at risk.
“But this wouldn’t be the first time she sided with traitors.”
Greene fired back and silenced Swalwell.
“Funny thing for an elected Member of Congress to say that had a sexual relationship with a Chinese spy while serving on the Intel Committee,” Greene said.
“Do you miss her?
“Is that why you constantly make it so easy to dunk on you?”

According to Axios:
Among the most significant targets of Fang’s efforts was Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.).
Fang took part in fundraising activity for Swalwell’s 2014 re-election campaign, according to a Bay Area political operative and a current U.S. intelligence official.
Swalwell’s office was directly aware of these activities on its behalf, the political operative said.
That same political operative, who witnessed Fang fundraising on Swalwell’s behalf, found no evidence of illegal contributions.
Federal Election Commission records don’t indicate Fang herself made donations, which are prohibited from foreign nationals.
Fang helped place at least one intern in Swalwell’s office, according to those same two people, and interacted with Swalwell at multiple events over the course of several years.
A statement from Swalwell’s office provided to Axios said: “Rep. Swalwell, long ago, provided information about this person — whom he met more than eight years ago, and whom he hasn’t seen in nearly six years — to the FBI. To protect information that might be classified, he will not participate in your story.”
