Opinion | George Santos’s Day in Court

The heat is on Rep. George Santos again after a House committee documented a long list of his alleged offenses. His days in the chamber are numbered, but that doesn’t mean he should be expelled before he gets his day in court.

The House Ethics Committee on Thursday released its report on Mr. Santos after an eight-month investigation. The committee, led by Reps. Michael Guest (R., Miss.) and Susan Wild (D., Pa.), accused the New York Congressman of crimes and ethics violations related to his misuse of campaign funds. The committee sent a criminal referral to the Justice Department that could add charges to an existing federal indictment against Mr. Santos for conspiracy and fraud. The trial is set for September.
