Is George Santos lastly about to fulfill his comeuppance? The identical has ceaselessly been stated about Donald Trump, and have a look at him now. However Santos isn’t Trump, and after a full yr of revelations about his wacko backstory — and a past damning report by the Home Ethics Committee — even he’s fairly certain he’s done-zo. But when he’s about to exit, he’s going to do it calling his enemies imply names.
“They wish to kick me out of a job they didn’t put me in,” he stated. “I’m not leaving. Come hell or excessive water, it’s achieved after I say it’s achieved.”
Is it, although? At one other level throughout his epic tirade, he sounded a bit extra like his future was out of his palms.
“I do know I’m going to get expelled when this expulsion decision goes to the ground,” Santos admitted. “I’ve achieved the mathematics time and again, and it doesn’t look actually good.”
Santos, who could also be expelled after the Home reconvenes post-Thanksgiving, has already introduced that, it doesn’t matter what occurs, he received’t search his job once more. However his causes for therefore, he claimed, weren’t what most would assume.
“I’m not operating for reelection, not as a result of this was a damning report,” Santos charged. I’m not operating for reelection as a result of I don’t wish to work with a bunch of hypocrites.”
Throughout the livestream, Santos torched his colleagues on each side of the aisle.
“Throughout the ranks of United States Congress there’s felons galore, there’s individuals with all types of shystie backgrounds,” Santos stated. He claimed a few of them are “extra apprehensive about getting drunk each evening with the subsequent lobbyists they’re going to screw” than enacting laws.
Santos, although, reserved specific ire for one colleague specifically: Home Ethics Committee Chairman Michael Visitor, who launched the decision as well him. He dared Visitor to power an expulsion vote, telling him to “be a person and cease being a pussy and name the rattling movement.”
Will that work? Will Santos be out on the road quickly, making up all new inventive lies about his previous, all whereas keeping off these 23 felony costs awaiting him regarding issues like wire fraud, identification theft, and cash laundering? Or will he, like Trump, in some way weasel his approach out of it, stronger than ever? We stay in dumb instances, so who’s to say?
