Reps. Dan Goldman (D-N.Y.) and Ritchie Torres (D-N.Y.) issued a letter Sunday to House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Chair of the House Republican Caucus Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), and Congressional Leadership Fund President Dan Conston calling on them to cooperate with the investigations into Santos.
“In light of recent public reporting indicating that each of you had at least some knowledge of the web of lies used by Congressman George Santos to deceive his voters long before they became public, we write to request that you proactively and forthrightly cooperate with all current and future investigations into Mr. Santos, including the investigation by the House Committee on Ethics that Speaker McCarthy confirmed this week,” the letter stated.
“It is one thing for a candidate such as Mr. Santos to induce voters to support him based on a web of lies. But it is altogether something else if the top levels of Republican leadership knew about Mr. Santos’s lies during the campaign and chose to be complicit,” it added.
