Rep. George Santos may be thinking about stepping down from Congress after all. Facing a likely expulsion vote as soon as Wednesday, the embattled Long Island lawmaker held talks with Speaker Mike Johnson over the weekend, suggesting he could be mulling a more amicable exit. “I’ve spoken to Rep. Santos at some length over the holiday and talked to him about his options,” Johnson told reporters in Sarasota, Fla. “But … it’s not yet determined.”Johnson added that “it remains to be seen” whether Santos would face an expulsion vote this week. The disgraced lawmaker has scheduled a press conference for Thursday, but it’s not clear what the topic might be, especially since an expulsion vote could come before then. Republican leaders released a schedule for House votes that did not include the Santos expulsion, although it could still take place.
