The House Ethics Committee released a report on Thursday on its investigation into New York Republican Rep. George Santos’ “potential violations of federal criminal law.”
Santos was arrested in early May on 13 charges related to fraud, money laundering, theft of public funds and false statements, and received a 23-count superseding indictment in early October for conspiracy and additional fraud, all of which he pleaded not guilty to. The committee reported that it uncovered “substantial evidence” that Santos “knowingly” committed fraud, while using campaign donations for “personal purposes,” among other findings that it referred to the Department of Justice.
“[The committee found] substantial evidence that Representative Santos: knowingly caused his campaign committee to file false or incomplete reports with the Federal Election Commission; used campaign funds for personal purposes; engaged in fraudulent conduct in connection with RedStone Strategies LLC; and engaged in knowing and willful violations of the Ethics in Government Act as it relates to his Financial Disclosure (FD) Statements filed with the House,” the report reads.
