GOP Speaker Has ‘Reservations’ About WHAT?!

Mike Johnson

(5minnewsbreak.com) – In a move that will stun most right-minded Americans given what is now known, new GOP House Speaker Mike Johnson has voiced reservations about expelling Rep. George Santos, a Republican from New York, before a criminal conviction, citing concerns about setting a new precedent.

This is despite Santos having been found to have committed extremely serious “infractions” against House rules and alleged criminal corruption charges. Still, Johnson emphasized the importance of allowing congressional members to “vote their conscience.”

In a statement to reporters, Johnson stated, “I personally have real reservations about doing this, I’m concerned about a precedent that may be set for that.” The House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on Santos’ expulsion on Friday, following the release of a scathing report by the House Ethics Committee detailing substantial evidence of lawbreaking.

During the holiday recess, Johnson engaged in a conversation with Santos regarding the impending vote on expulsion. Despite Santos’ anticipation of expulsion and his assertion that he is “not going anywhere,” Johnson emphasized the leadership’s decision to let members make thoughtful and good-faith decisions.

The House Ethics Committee’s report revealed that Santos allegedly used campaign funds for personal expenses, including purchases at luxury retailers, Botox treatments, and contributions to an adult content site, OnlyFans.

The committee found that Santos caused the campaign to file false or incomplete reports and did not cooperate with the investigation, repeatedly “evading” straightforward requests for information.

“Representative Santos sought to fraudulently exploit every aspect of his House candidacy for his own personal financial profit,” the investigators noted in their report.

As the House prepares for the vote, Johnson’s reservations highlight the delicate balance between addressing alleged wrongdoing and ensuring fair treatment within the legislative process. The outcome of the vote will ultimately determine whether Santos faces expulsion, marking a significant moment in the ongoing controversy surrounding the New York Republican.
