Suspected Chinese Spy Resurfaces In China

As is now well known, from 2011 to 2015, a Chinese spy named Fang Fang (Christine Fang) reportedly honey-potted Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA). According to a December 2020 Axios story, Fang Fang participated in fundraisers for Swalwell’s 2014 re-election campaign and assisted in hiring an intern to work in Swalwell’s office.

In 2015, counterintelligence authorities informed Swalwell in a defense briefing that Fang Fang may have been a Chinese spy.  The US representative from California severed relations without delay.  It was supposedly the year when Fang Fang fled from the US.

In response, the FBI established a branch known as the Foreign Influence Task Force, whose mission is to reduce China’s political clout in the US. 

A Chinese spy had been a driver for the now-deceased Senator Dianne Feinstein for nearly 20 years.

The whereabouts of Fang Fang remained unknown until recently.  Hu Xijin’s surprising comment on X claims she is alive and healthy and that mainstream media distorts her life.

Former CCP Global Times editor-in-chief Hu Xijin reported that he recently had lunch with Fang and that the news concerning her is false.  Hu added a picture of himself and Fang Fang together at a restaurant for authenticity.

The alleged Fang Fang shared a story from CNN reporter John LeFever last November, in which he informed viewers that Fang Fang had died in a plane crash.

Despite the lack of evidence linking LeFever to his time as a CNN reporter, he did mention in an X post that not many are aware that Fang Fang, Swalwell’s Chinese espionage mistress, perished in a mysterious aircraft accident, which was captured on video.

It hasn’t been established that this is indeed Swalwell’s honeypot, but a NY Times article named ” Fang Fang ” as a passenger. Nevertheless, according to, some evidence might lend credence to the belief it was she.
