Rep.-elect George Santos (R-N.Y.) has said that Republicans should not launch any investigations for the first six months and instead they should place their attention on bettering the lives of Americans. Fox News anchor Sandra Smith asked Santos about the list of investigations that GOP members have proposed. These include investigations into COVID-19’s origins, Big Tech censorship, the Mar-a-Lago FBI raid, and the Biden family.
Santos replied that while the party is definitely able to pursue all of these investigations, he would rather spend his time on “hyper-partisan issues”. He also added that he was looking for results for the American people who voted him in. The incoming House Republican also added that instead of focusing on these investigations, it would be more important to ensure America’s energy independence, reduce crime in cities and find ways to support education.
The GOP is currently expected to win the House majority with a narrow margin. Many GOP members have proposed a number of inquiries and potential impeachment proceedings against Biden and his administration.
Santos managed to win a blue seat that had originally been held by Democrat Robert Zimmerman in New York’s 3rd Congressional District.
Santos added that while he did not believe the investigations are a waste of time, he just did not think they were as important as the issues that affect the daily lives of Americans.
