A U.S. Congressman from California who is known best for promulgating the leftist conspiracy theory that President Donald J. Trump “colluded” with the Russians to win the presidency has announced his own candidacy for the 2020 race.
“U.S. Representative Eric Swalwell said on Monday he would seek the Democratic nomination for president, joining a crowded field seeking to take on Republican Donald Trump in the 2020 election,” said a Reuters report.
The Democrat’s announcement will be made public on CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” which will air late Monday night. Colbert is a known leftist political operative who masquerades as a comedian.
Swalwell is best known for his voluminous cable news appearances during which he conspiracy theorized about Trump being an asset of a hostile foreign power. Even after Attorney General William Barr released the findings of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s lengthy investigation, which cleared Trump of collusion and obstruction of justice, Swalwell still called Trump a “traitor.”
He also had an internet dust up with Second Amendment supporters who claimed that they would never turn their guns over to the federal government, saying that such a demand would cause a civil war. In response, Swalwell suggested using nuclear weapons on American citizens.
“And it would be a short war my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit. I’m sure if we talked we could find common ground to protect our families and communities,” Swalwell said on Twitter.
He enters an already-crowded Democratic primary field, which includes Democratic Party Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Kamala Harris (Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Failed U.S. Senate candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke has entered the race, as have former Obama administration official Julian Castro of Texas, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), Mayors Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, and entrepreneur Andrew Yang.
Two heavy hitters, former Vice President Joe Biden and failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams are both considering entering the race.

SLEEPY: Joe Biden Campaign Team Pulls Joe from Daily Activities at 8:35AM, Months Before Election
Joe Biden’s press relations teams announced a “lid” to the traveling press pool at 8:34 EST on Saturday, surprising some observers with the announcement that the Democratic candidate would not make any public appearances on a Saturday merely seven weeks before the November presidential election.
Biden is taking it easy for the day at his home in Wilmington, Delaware.
The Biden campaign has called a lid at 8:35am, per pool. So we won’t see Joe Biden today.

After facing skepticism for the decision from some of the traveling press, a Biden campaign operative made it seem as if the off-day was some sort of calculated plan.
.@edokeefe reports the Biden move to lay low may seem “odd or misguided”, but his team disagrees.
A senior aide said, “We’ve been through some high-pressure times before and we’re always deliberate about how we respond…People will question our tactics and we’ll do our thing.”

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump is holding a packed rally in North Carolina, preceded by White House meetings and pressers with reporters.

Biden has surprised even friendly corporate media reporters covering his campaign with his amount of ‘off-days,’ consistently declining to actively campaign for the Presidency as the nation approaches the election.
The former Vice President appeared later than he usually does in public Friday night, reading from a prepared statement mourning the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Perhaps the “late night” (it was only about 9PM local time) appearance in public derailed Biden’s plans for possible campaign stops the next day. It’s relatively unprecedented for a major party presidential candidate to simply decline to campaign seven weeks before an election in the modern era of campaigns and elections.

Biden doesn’t even really have the energy to campaign. How is he going to govern as President?
