SPOILER: Of course not, but the only reason he didn’t is because this odious mouthbreather is so in love with the sound of his own voice that he doesn’t care what he says.
Yesterday, Swalwell was on CNN’s Situation Room hosted by the noted attack-Shih Tzu, Wolf Blitzer (Motto: We’re number 48 but we can still fall farther).
Rep. Swalwell on discussions for Putin to visit Washington this fall: "When your home is burglarized, you don't invite the burglar to dinner … you put in a home security system" https://t.co/rcuTKQ1E1w pic.twitter.com/oiAhJyBvcb

I don’t even see how the analogy Swalwell uses can possibly be twisted to apply to Putin and Trump meeting but it has been used for years, in various permutations, by people who want our immigration laws enforced. In fact, Swalwell sounds remarkably like testimony given by Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen:
“The way that I think of this is in terms of home security,” Nielsen responded. “If you have an alarm in your home and you catch a burglar and you call the police, and the police come and, in fact, it is an illegal entry into your home, but the police then tell you that they have absolutely no ability to detain or remove those criminals and the criminals stay in your house, you would not tell me that is home security.”
Swalwell’s entire premise is calculatedly dishonest claptrap that now characterizes so much of the critique of anything concerning Trump. No one is inviting Putin into our house. Russia has had two rounds of sanctions imposed on it based on the meddling it carried out in 2016. The real question is is there any end to the retaliation these people want us to impose? From what I can see, the answer is no. People like Swalwell will literally, actually, not be satisfied with any response that Trump authorizes short of a thermonuclear war…and then he’ll be complaining about global warming.
I’m on Facebook. Drop by and join the fun there.
