  1. A great, great day for the entire con man community. We finally have our very own voice in congress. Its like a real life version of that Eddie Murphy movie. 😂😂😂😂😂😂

    1. Y’all have had Elizabeth,Native American, Warren for a long time. The con man community was alive and well in congress well before this gentlemen arrived

  2. We MUST stop saying that political criminals – any of them – won’t be prosecuted for their crimes. Our expectations, goals and actions must follow the road to truth and justice. If we don’t have an expectation of criminal prosecution, it is human nature to discount its importance, to not seek justice at all out of frustration, or for those who are seeking to subvert democracy to exploit such a weakness. We cannot allow that to happen. Expect justice, expect criminal prosecution, and continue to gather and disseminate the information that will further that goal.

    1. I’m gonna take a guess and say the last two years are people with degrees in congress has ruined the country and all liars.

  3. Does he place his hand on a Bible when sworn in ? And make any kind of vow to do anything ? Can he be believed ? …. Really ?

  4. He didn’t just lie about education or previous jobs on a résumé. He lied about every single thing. I don’t believe that anything he said had one single word of truth.

  5. The U.S. may choose to not extradite Santos (though extradition would be a fast and easy way to get him out of our hair) BUT; Now the Brazilians know where to ‘Find’ him!😶😎😎

  6. The current president bold faced lied about his resume too and it apparently didn’t matter so what difference does it make?

  7. He’s going to have all those health and wealth benefits for life no matter the outcome of investigation. Social welfare for the grossly deceitful bottom feeders.

  8. Why not? Integrity went out the Republicans’ window in 2016. No turning back now. Santos is, when you think about it, a Republican’s Republican.
