Swalwell took maximum campaign donations from a top lobbyist for Nord Stream 2, the company behind an oil transportation project dubbed "Putin’s pipeline." Swalwell received $2,900 last year from Vincent Roberti, Sr., the chairman of lobbying powerhouse Roberti Global. Roberti gave $5,400 to Swalwell’s campaign in 2018. Roberti Global received $2.4 million in 2021 from Nord Stream 2 AG, a Switzerland-based subsidiary of Russian oil giant Gazprom. Critics of the 761-mile pipeline have long said it would allow Vladimir Putin to tighten his grip on Eastern Europe.
