Not a great day for sociopaths facing justice. First Trump was found guilty of sexual battery and defamation, and now this: Your favorite pathological liar in congress, George Santos, has been indicted by the Department of Justice and is facing criminal charges in New York. The charges are still under seal, but he’s expected to appear in court tomorrow after being arrested. Via CNN:

Federal prosecutors have filed criminal charges against New York Rep. George Santos, the Republican lawmaker whose astonishing pattern of lies and fabrications stunned even hardened politicos, according to three sources familiar with the matter.

Santos is expected to appear as soon as Wednesday at federal court in New York’s eastern district, where the charges have been filed under seal.

The exact nature of the charges couldn’t immediately be learned but the FBI and the Justice Department public integrity prosecutors in New York and Washington have been examining allegations of false statements in Santos’ campaign finance filings and other claims.

The congressman’s attorney declined to comment. Spokespeople for the Brooklyn US Attorney’s Office, the Justice Department and the FBI declined to comment.
