After Axios reported on Tuesday that a Chinese spy had been romantically involved with Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, Georgia Democrat Senate candidate Jon Ossoff is coming under fire after allegedly hiding his own ties to a pro-Chinese Communist Party (CCP) media company.
Georgia GOP officials had filed a complaint accusing Ossoff of knowingly failing to disclose payments from a pro-CCP media company, PCCW Media Limited, in his May 2020 campaign financial disclosure. Ossoff amended the filing in July to reflect receiving the payments.
The spy at the center of the Swalwell scandal, Fang Fang, reportedly worked for China by targeting up-and-coming politicians expected to make it big on the national stage. And Jon Ossoff certainly fits that mold, as conservative writer Erick Erickson points out.
