The House Ethics Committee will not recommend expelling Republican Rep. George Santos of New York from Congress but will release a public report detailing its investigation into allegations against him, including casual lying and a federal indictment.

The report, based on extensive investigation, will provide a factual basis for members to decide on potential expulsion.

“We did not go through the longer process of coming forth and recommending sanctions because that would have taken several more months,” Rep. Michael Guest said. (Trending: Judge Issue Major Ruling On Transgender Procedures For Kids)

“The information that we intend to release in the report, [we believe] that that will be enough for members to be able to make a decision as to whether or not they believe it would be proper to expel Rep. Santos,” he added.

Santos, who has survived past expulsion votes, plans to stay in office.

“Like I said before, I’m staying in office for sure,” he stated. “I will take whatever comes my way, the way it comes.”

Some New York Republican members of the House intend to call for his removal following the Thanksgiving recess, citing him as a fraud.

Santos remains optimistic about his re-election prospects, while others believe it’s time for him to leave.

“Look, could I have won the general election last time? Nobody said I could,” he stated.

“Elections are tricky. There’s no predetermined outcome.”
