Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) told MSNBC host Katie Phang that he wants to ban conservative news channels, such as Fox News, from being broadcast to U.S. troops.

Swalwell made the following comment in regards to being asked about the ongoing Dominion voting system lawsuit against Fox News and whether Congress should get involved.

Should Fox News be broadcast to listeners everywhere?

“Nothing makes them feel more like home than their access to American television programming,” Swalwell said.

“I don’t want to get in the business of telling troops what they can and cannot watch. But, if you have a news station that a court is going to rule is, in its evening hour, you know, perpetuating dis- and misinformation, I don’t know if I disagree with VoteVets, who was saying that we need to take a look at, you know, how this is being broadcast to our troops,” Swalwell finished.

Swalwell was referring to an advertisement put out by VoteVets to ban Fox News on military installations.

Former President Trump released a video Monday attacking Swalwell, saying he “shouldn’t be taken seriously.”
