After the president of the House of Representatives Kevin McCarthy revealed that George Santos was being investigated by the Ethics Committee, several Republicans have come out to ask him to vacate his place in Congress, however, the controversial representative from New York has repeatedly said that he does not intend to take a step back unless the people who voted for him ask him to.
However, those close to him are not as optimistic as Santos, such is the case of the representative Marc Molinaro who, like his colleague, was first elected to Congress in 2022; In an interview with CNN, he assured that he does not “see a scenario” in which he can finish his term.
“George Santos will not be in any candidacy in 2024. I am very confident that, first, the investigations I believe will produce the truth and that truth may surprise Congressman Santos, but no one else,” he said.
Molinario also highlighted that I don’t think the term is over “The leadership and voters in your district on Long Island have had enough. I don’t see a scenario where he runs for re-election or frankly even completes his term.”
He also indicated that would be ready to expel Santos from the Chamberin a move that would require the support of two-thirds of House representatives to succeed.
Until now, McCarthy has refused to act against Santosbut he has made it clear that he could leave Congress if it is discovered that he has broken the law, in addition, he has revealed that the people voted for him and his decision is respectable.
Meanwhile, Santos has repeatedly used his social network Twitter to make it clear that he does not intend to take a step back. “Let me be very clear, I will not leave, I will not hide and I will not back down.”
