In an appearance on ‘Piers Morgan Uncensored,’ serial liar Rep. George Santos (R-NY) told the British broadcaster, “I’ve been a terrible liar.”
Morgan asked Santos if he would be “prepared” to admit that he’s been a “terrible liar.”
“Sure,” Santos agreed. “Well, I’ve been a terrible liar on those subjects, and what I tried to convey to the American people is, I made mistakes.”
Santos, who is currently under investigation by local, state and federal lawmakers in connection to his alleged campaign finance violations, told Morgan that his numerous lies about his background weren’t “about tricking people.”
“This was about getting accepted by the party here locally,” Santos said.
Among Santos’ many lies are falsely claiming that he’d “worked directly” for Goldman Sachs and Citigroup, graduated from Baruch College on a full ride scholarship as a “championship volleyball player,” and had a Jewish mother whose parents escaped the Nazis during World War II.
Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy has confirmed Santos is facing a House Ethics probe, and earlier this month House Democrats filed a resolution seeking to have Santos expelled from Congress.
