This will be fun to watch


This afternoon, that changed. The House panel issued this relatively brief press statement, kicking off the process:

[T]he Committee unanimously voted on February 28, 2023, to establish an Investigative Subcommittee. Pursuant to the Committee’s action, the Investigative Subcommittee shall have jurisdiction to determine whether Representative George Santos may have: engaged in unlawful activity with respect to his 2022 congressional campaign; failed to properly disclose required information on statements filed with the House; violated federal conflict of interest laws in connection with his role in a firm providing fiduciary services; and/or engaged in sexual misconduct towards an individual seeking employment in his congressional office.

The committee’s four-member investigation will apparently be led by Republican Rep. David Joyce of Ohio and Democratic Rep. Susan Wild of Pennsylvania. They’ll be joined by Republican Rep. John Rutherford of Florida and Democratic Rep. Glenn Ivey of Maryland.....

At this point, we’re still pretty early in the process, and these investigations generally take months, during which time the public can expect to hear very little about incremental developments. But House Ethics Committee investigations come with a range of possibilities, from complete exoneration to a recommended expulsion vote, and plenty of options in between.

For his part, Santos published a tweet this afternoon, which read in its entirety, “The House Committee on Ethics has opened an investigation, and Congressman George Santos is fully cooperating. There will be no further comment made at this time.”

All that bullshit on paper calling people "The Honorable" - and they let a lying sleezeball like this even ENTER the chambers?
He should have been tossed 5 minutes after he was sworn in.

No, wait - CHECK THAT!

They should NEVER have even allowed him to be sworn in!!!!!
