Rep. George Santos (R-NY) threatened other Republicans on Wednesday after he was indicted on 10 new felony counts in a 23 count superseding indictment that was returned this week stemming from alleged crimes related to campaign finance.

The new charges included one count of conspiracy to commit offenses against the United States, two counts of wire fraud, two counts of making materially false statements to the Federal Election Commission (FEC), two counts of falsifying records submitted to obstruct the FEC, two counts of aggravated identity theft, and one count of access device fraud.

Santos told reporters that he was not willing to take a plea deal because he claimed that he could prove his “innocence.”

Santos’ former campaign treasurer, Nancy Marks, pled guilty to crimes in the case last week.

When asked by reporters if he blamed her, he said no and then added: “I’m just saying it wasn’t me. I didn’t handle the finances. That is why you pay treasurers and fundraisers.”

A group of six New York Republican freshman lawmakers announced this week that they were introducing “an expulsion resolution to rid the People’s House of fraudster, George Santos.”

Santos responded to the expulsion resolution in a statement on Wednesday afternoon, saying that the effort was backed by “anti American … WEAK RINO’s.”


“Remember if I’m in fact ousted fascism will officially be well and alive in the United States of America and these members will be the champions of it,” he claimed. “I do want to remind my dear colleagues who all but one have deep long troubling careers in politics that I will have a lot of time on my hands to return the favor in the most expedient fashion mankind has ever seen.”

“I’m done with the hypocrisy and the projection coming from the same individuals for the last 10 months!” he added.
