US Republican George Santos will be removed from Congress if he violates campaign finance laws

Rep. George Santos, who lied about a significant portion of his resume and life narrative, would be expelled from Congress if found to have violated campaign finance regulations, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer announced on Sunday.

Comer stated on CNN’s State Of The Union show, “He’s a nasty guy. Neither I nor any other member of Congress can decide whether he can be expelled for lying. If he now violates campaign finance laws, he will be expelled from Congress.”

He advised them to cooperate with any ethics probe into the incident. Goldman wrote in his letter, It is one thing for a candidate like Santos to use a web of lies to convince folks to support him.

However, it is an entirely other matter if the highest levels of Republican leadership were aware of Mr. Santos’ campaign deceit and chose to be complicit. McCarthy, the office of Stefanik, and the Congressional Leadership Fund did not respond to calls for comment immediately.
