Hugh Hewitt: Swalwell Should Resign

We now know that the California Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell is being investigated for his intimate relations with a Chinese spy.

The initial report came from Axios last week—but we’re sure to learn more as details emerge.

To speak in blunt terms: Rep. Swalwell got caught with his hand in a honeypot. He should resign immediately. If he does not resign immediately, Speaker Pelosi should demand that he resign his position on the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

One of the key accomplishments of the Trump administration was getting real about China—with the help of Secretary of State Pompeo and the National Security Advisor, the President awakened the nation to the very serious threat from the Chinese Communist Party.

We ought to do all we can to press back against the appeasers and more so against those who are compromised.

Swalwell, I should note, spent years downplaying the China threat and hyping a Russia collusion hoax.

We now know that the California democrat himself was compromised. We have indications that he was not the only one.

He should resign immediately.

Hugh Hewitt: The Case for a Second Trump Term

The 2020 election is now just days away.

Here’s my short case for backing the Trump-Pence ticket and voting for Republican senators and representatives in your state.

On the coronavirus pandemic, Trump has done as well as any president could have done—and certainly better than Joe Biden.

You’re safer and more secure because of the Trump military buildup.

The president has made the necessary pivot with China—and he’s brokered the first major breakthrough peace deal in the Middle East in 25 years.

On the economy, Trump and the GOP succeeded in bringing unemployment to all-time lows early this year. Now, even amidst the pandemic, the economy is bouncing back.

Your First and Second Amendment freedoms are much stronger as well, because Trump has bolstered the Supreme Court and federal courts with strong judges who honor the Constitution.

Whatever you think of Trump personally, there’s no question: His policies have been good for the country.

Join me in voting for a second Trump term.

Lanhee Chen: The Right Approach to China

President Trump’s record on foreign policy over the course of his first term in office boasts some significant accomplishments and noteworthy gains.

But there’s unfinished business to do—and nowhere is that business more critical than in the efforts to redefine America’s relationship with the People’s Republic of China, tackling the single biggest geopolitical challenge America faces today.

In a potential second term, Trump should establish a single, overriding goal for his foreign policy: how America can win the “strategic competition” we are engaged in with the People’s Republic of China.

More broadly, we need to work with our friends and allies to ensure a “free and open” Indo-Pacific, the region where the most is at stake for us in the coming decades.

But it all starts with the right approach to China.

President Trump has the right team assembled to do this. The American people can give him that opportunity.
