Expulsion is “an extreme punishment [that] should be used only in very rare cases,” he said, adding that members now have a solid base of facts from which to make a decision.According to ABC, investigators for the committee contacted at least 40 witnesses, reviewed 170,000 pages of documents and authorized dozens of subpoenas. Santos, who has survived two past expulsion votes, said he has no plans to leave Congress until pushed out. “Like I said before, I’m staying in office for sure,” he said. “I will take whatever comes my way, the way it comes.” It might be coming soon, according to some New York Republican members of the House, who said they will call for booting Santos when the House comes back from its Thanksgiving recess. “The substance in the report will drive other members to get to yes,” Republican Rep. Nick LaLota of New York said. Republican Rep. Marc Molinaro of New York said the report “is going to affirm and confirm what we already know: George Santos is a fraud; he should not be a member of Congress.” Earlier this month, Santos said he was bullish on his future in Congress, saying he believes that despite the controversy around him, he could be re-elected, according to CNN. “Look, could I have won the general election last time? Nobody said I could,” he said. “Elections are tricky. There’s no predetermined outcome.” Others think it is time for him to go. “Who knows what’s going to be on this report?” Republican Rep. Tony Gonzales of Texas said, according to CNN. “It’s always a wild card with him. I think the people of his district need representation and they’re not getting that right now. Clearly he has a lot of issues that he needs to go home and solve.” This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
