Swalwell posted on Twitter to blast McCarthy, “Recognize the New McCarthyism. Multiple sentences in the resolution state that ‘Swalwell is not denied …’ But failed to include the FBI’s numerous statements that ‘nothing is wrong’ and nothing to do but ‘cooperate.’ All this to deviate from [McCarthy’s] support for QAnon. ”
