Rep. Jeffries stated on MSNBC’s The Reid Out:

You realize, George Santos is a serial fraudster. He doesn’t belong wherever close to the Home of Representatives. He defrauded the folks of the third congressional district in New York. Lied about all the pieces. Lied about his life, lied about his jobs, lied about his funds, lied about his skilled experiences. Lied about being Jewish. He perpetrated a fraud on the folks of New York. He was elected beneath false pretenses.

So I commend Congressman Garcia for bringing this privileged decision ahead, and the actual query is, are Home Republicans going to face on the facet of fact or stand on the facet of George Santos? It’s vital to say, Santos was referred to the ethics committee month in the past. So what are we doing? You’re both going to carry him accountable beneath the structure otherwise you’re not. It’s going to be attention-grabbing to see how these so-called moderates when it comes to New York Home Republicans vote. They’ve all stated that they need him out. And he doesn’t belong within the Home of Representatives. Tomorrow, they may have a chance to vote their phrase.

It is vitally easy. George Santos is beneath federal felony indictment. He didn’t simply mislead get elected. The freshman New York Republican congressman is accused of committing crimes associated to his election and place.

If Republicans, particularly the New York Republican delegation are honest of their need to have Santos gone, they will do one thing about it tomorrow, but when they vote no on the decision to expel Rep. Santos, they are going to be linking themselves to him, and setting Democrats as much as retake the Home subsequent 12 months.

The stakes of the vote are extra far-reaching than George Santos. The vote might be an enormous step in Democrats taking again the bulk within the Home of Representatives.
