Swalwell introduces federal whistleblower protection law

Original post made on Jun 23, 2020

Can anyone point out any issue of substance this guy has done for the community? All through Obamagate and the baseless phone call impeachment fiasco his mug was hugged up against the back of Adam Schfiff in every photo shot when Schiff scurried out of hearings to lie and leak info to the media. Lest we forget this idiot actually ran for President. What an embarrassment.

The law should first address that there shall be no government program security classification outside and above the office of POTUS, and that POTUS has the authority to declassify any secret government project on which he as been briefed or on which he has not been briefed.

Didn't President Jimmy Carter say when he asked about UFO's and Aliens he was told "no" by then head of the CIA, Bush One?

How many other secrets are kept from Presidents?

All of you who focus on terrible politicians should look at the top of the pile. ...Agent Orange in the White House. He is a liar, racist, and a narcissist . He cheats and not just in golf. Where are his tax return? Why would he not let his staff testify in front of Congress during his Impeachment hearings. Where was he when he knew that the virus was coming to USA? He needs to take the blame for not preparing us for this disaster. Agent Orange dumped it on the Governors. That way when this disaster hit he could blame it on the Govenors He does not take responsibility for anything except for the ongoing Obama’s economy. Let’s not forget what our economy was like when Obama first took office. Disaster! No one can become President and turn the economy over as fast as Agent Orange claims he did! Liar! Agent Orange in an embarrassment and is terrible leader for our country. There has never been so much hatred and racism in the US since he took office. Swallwell may not be perfect, but thank goodness he is not like Agent Orange!

Swalwell has done absolutely nothing for District 15 since he has been in office. He has yet to introduce anything of substance or value to us his constituents. President Trump is not perfect, But it beats socialism and Sleepy Joe...

Mr/Ms Me, My dislike was for the then CIA director who kept secrets from POTUS when specifically asked. It is not the purpose of my comment to rate the presidents. Instead I am trying to illustrate there ought to be a law that the reasserts our commitment to a constitutional democratic-republic stating our POTUS has the powers to declassify any secret government project on which he as been briefed ("read in" to the project, as they say) or on which he has not been briefed (not been "read in).

It is unacceptable that we find embedded in government bureaucrats who place themselves above POTUS. If Congr. Swalwell would address this issue I think he would find it is not partisan and at the same time serves the better interests of the nation.

Thanks for nothing Eric. You’ve done zero for district 15.

You’re guilty of the same crimes you’ve accused our president of. And here you are now trying to bury the evidence.

I seriously hope Katherine Baker runs against you.

ME. I assume you will vote for Biden this next election or are you on the fence.

ME: First of all, change the channel...if you're watching MSNBC and CNN, their one goal is to spew hate and dishonesty about the Trump administration. Not one President has accomplished what his administration has accomplished in the 3+ years he's been in office. I like to share this link: Web Link which breaks down everything that this current administration has done for our country...month by month. You might now agree with all things accomplished, but it's a heck of a list that benefits ALL Americans.

Well- I also feel he has done nothing for our district.

Let's do it the American way and VOTE HIM OUT. There are 5 people running against him... if I googled correctly.

Sorry putting another publication- but Pleasanton Weekly didn't have info- unless it was blocked for some reason.
