Rep. George Santos (R-NY)

Truth-challenged Rep. George Santos (R-NY) has announced he will step down from his congressional committee assignments to focus on clearing up his fabricated resume issues.

“The congressman is reserving his seats on his assigned committees until he has been properly cleared of both campaign and personal financial investigations,” said his spokeswoman, Naysa Woomer.

The announcement follows a closed-door meeting between Santos and House GOP leadership.

Santos is not accepting any committee assignments “until things get cleared up,” a long time GOP member told CNBC.

Santos has come under intense scrutiny since winning the November election for the 3rd Congressional District for fabricating parts of his resume and other aspects of his background.

He faces numerous calls for his resignation from Congress, including from GOP leaders in Nassau County. Several investigations are underway about his finances.

Santos was a member of the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology and the Committee on Small Business.
