U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell, the Democrat from California who had an intimate affair with suspected Chinese spy Fang Fang, proudly shared online Thursday just how duplicitous and dishonest he can be — which comes as no surprise to those paying attention to the congressman.

Swalwell engaged with a man purported to be from Canada who allegedly called the Democratic lawmaker a “traitor” on Instagram and said he “should be shot.” The man also said he hoped Swalwell would “get hung one day,” according to Swalwell. The violent rhetoric prompted him to act like he was befriending the man, and Swalwell would later boast how he tricked the man into identifying himself. Then again, a call to law enforcement would have rendered the whole exercise unnecessary.

Once he learned the man’s name and his line of business, Swalwell promptly shared it on Twitter in a clear attempt to destroy the man’s life — all the while, urging people not to do precisely what he knew they would do. Not surprisingly, he embarked on a fishing excursion along the way to blame Fox News for radicalizing the man.

“A man DM’d I should be shot. For my family’s safety, I asked Twitter for help ID’ing him. When Twitter fell short (thanks for trying!) I asked the guy his name (stringing him a bit) & why he threatened me. Meet Jeremy Marshall who told me he was radicalized by Tucker Carlson,” Swalwell tweeted.

Of course, Marshall didn’t exactly say he was radicalized by Tucker Carlson, as Swalwell opined. Turns out, the politician engaged in a bit of editorializing here.

“What news sites do you follow that made you so angry with me,” Swalwell asked, throwing out the hook after Marshall said he “really got dragged down a rabbit hole.”

“[O]ne was Joe Rogan, probably the most influential”, he said, telling Swalwell he would have to “check the other articles I’ve read.” His next remark actually exonerates Carlson, as Marshall was clear that the Fox News host “lost me” recently.

“Tucker Carlson slammed you too much and lost me when he said you had multiple STD’s,” he wrote. “So at least he went so overboard he can’t be believed anymore.”

The comment is in response to Carlson commenting back on Dec. 21 about Swalwell pushing to require airline passengers to be vaccinated against COVID.

Suggesting that Swalwell is “probably the most physically unclean member of Congress,” Carlson said the lawmaker “imagines himself a public health official with the power to make these decisions.”

“Before we go any further and grant Eric Swalwell that power, we probably ought to see his medical records,” he added. “It’d be kind of ironic if a guy with multiple chlamydia infections was lecturing the rest of us about how to keep safe from a virus. We await that data.”

In sharing their direct messages online, Swalwell shows how far he took his deception to find out not only Marshall’s name, but the name of his construction business as well, feigning that he would send family members who live in Canada his way — the lawmaker has no family north of the border.

Marshall, having swallowed Swalwell’s ruse hook, line and sinker, apologized profusely in the end and called himself an “idiot” — his offerings appearing to be sincere. Swalwell rewarded Marshall for coming around by blasting his name across the web, knowing full well what that would mean. All the while, claiming “he engaged with this guy to learn as much as I could about his identity to share with law enforcement.”

The great irony here is that Marshall’s claim of Swalwell being a traitor proved to be true — not that this revelation condones violent threats.

As for Swalwell, he had already moved on, exploiting the incident to launch a false attack on Tucker Carlson for “radicalizing people.”

The reaction online included many doubters insisting the whole production is a work of fiction. There were also plenty of thoughts about how Swalwell ultimately betrayed Marshall, if in fact he really does exist.

Here’s a  sampling of the results from Twitter:
