Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi took some serious heat Tuesday over some of the members of Congress she chose to be managers over the Democrats’ latest attempt to impeach President Donald Trump and have him removed from office.

Some are wondering why in the world the Democrats would even be trying to impeach a president who only has a few days left in his term. The short answer is because if they succeed, Trump will never be able to run again, thus preventing him from launching another campaign in 2024.

“Tonight, I have the solemn privilege of naming the Managers of the impeachment trial of Donald Trump,” Pelosi said in a statement. Pelosi announced that the impeachment managers are Reps. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), Diana DeGette (D-CO), David Cicilline (D-RI), Joaquin Castro (D-TX), Eric Swalwell (D-CA), Ted Lieu (D-CA), Madeleine Dean (D-PA), Joe Neguse (D-CO) and Virgin Islands delegate Stacey E. Plasket (D).

Critics and commentators online quickly noted that Swalwell and Lieu were controversial picks because of their combativeness toward Trump and because of a recent scandal involving Swalwell.

A report from Axios late last year revealed that Swalwell had previously had close ties to an alleged Chinese spy named Fang Fang, or Christine Fang.

Fang, “targeted up-and-coming local politicians in the Bay Area and across the country who had the potential to make it big on the national stage” through “campaign fundraising, extensive networking, personal charisma, and romantic or sexual relationships,” Axios reported. “Even though U.S. officials do not believe Fang received or passed on classified information, the case ‘was a big deal, because there were some really, really sensitive people that were caught up’ in the intelligence network, a current senior U.S. intelligence official said.”

Not having Swalwell on the list of impeachment managers should be a no-brainer. The fact that Pelosi has added his name to the roster should tell you just how corrupt the Democratic Party really is.

They protect their own. Unlike the rest of us in America, who believe in taking personal responsibility for your actions, which means accepting the risks and consequences for the things we do, the radical left bends over backwards to help prevent members of their own party from experiencing negative blowback as a result of their actions.

Here’s to hoping their efforts to impeach the president fail. Miserably.
