NOW: Federal Prosecutors Have Opened An Investigation

( – According to law enforcement experts, given the sheer volume of demonstrable lies Congressman-elect George Santos told voters during his campaign, it was inevitable that he would find himself under criminal investigation.

And now that is what has happened.

Breitbart News frames the current situation for Santos in “Federal Prosecutors Open Investigation into George Santos”:

Federal prosecutors in New York have now opened an investigation into incoming GOP Congressman George Santos due to reports he lied about his personal and professional history.

“Sources close to the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York confirmed to NBC News on Thursday that an investigation has been launched into the soon-to-be junior congressman. NBC News noted:

“‘The investigation is said to be in its very early stages and has not zeroed in on any one allegation of wrongdoing yet, but the two sources confirmed that prosecutors are examining Santos’ finances, including potential irregularities involving financial disclosures and loans he made to his campaign while running for Congress.'” [emphasis added]

In addition to the now-reported federal investigation of Santos, Republican District Attorney Anne Donnelly of Nassau County, New York, has opened a state criminal investigation.

Political pundits we spoke with can’t remember an incoming member of Congress arriving with not just one but two criminal investigations before even being sworn into office.
