Disgraced Congressman George Santos has resigned from his committee assignments granted to him by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy due to ongoing personal and campaign finance investigations. Santos issued a statement saying he would be recused from the House Committee on Small Business and the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology until he is cleared. Given Santos’s defiance in the past, it’s likely that his resignation from committees is not genuine and that he was forced off his committees by Kevin McCarthy for unknown reasons. Perhaps the House Speaker did this because he knows that something is coming down the line or that Santos' resignation would complicate the Republican Party's mission to remove Ilhan Omar from her post on the Foreign Affairs Committee. Whatever the reason is, there finally looks to be some sort of consequence for Santos’s pathological lying, and hopefully, he’s soon forced to resign from Congress altogether.
