House Ethics Committee Opens Santos Investigation
By Matthew Fischetti
U.S. Representative George Santos is facing yet another investigation.
The House Ethics Committee announced on March 2 that they opened up an investigation into the congressman..
Santos is specifically being investigated in regards to “unlawful activity” in relation to his 2022 congressional campaign, failure to properly disclose required information on statements filed with the House, violation of federal conflict of interest laws relating to his role in a firm providing fiduciary services, and engaging in sexual misconduct to an individual seeking employment in his office.
Santos’s government Twitter account said on March 2 that ”Congressman George Santos is fully cooperating. There will be no further comment made at this time.”
Politico previously reported that the FBI opened an investigation into allegations that he took money meant for a disabled U.S. Navy veteran’s service dog. Back in December, the Nassau County D.A. also announced that they too were investigating the lying congressman
Santos is also facing charges from Brazilian prosecutors for check fraud charges levied against him back when he was 19-years-old.
Speaker Kevin McCarthy previously said that if Santos is found to have broken the law, “we will remove him,” per ABC News.
