It’s no secret that Republican Rep. George Santos has lied a staggering amount about issues both big and small, work-related and private, and scandalous and unimportant. Yet, the New York lawmaker misled voters and journalists almost every time.
Yet, lying before a judge when a case is being heard in court seems to be a fundamentally different form of dishonesty. Today’s afternoon Politico report stated:
“George Santos lied to a Seattle judge about working for Goldman Sachs while speaking at a 2017 bail hearing for a “family friend” who later pleaded guilty to fraud in an ATM skimming scheme, according to an audio recording of the proceeding and court records.”
When Santos’ lies were initially made public late last year, the New York Times made note that the Republican’s campaign biography boasted about his work at Goldman Sachs among other locations. Goldman Sachs was shocked by this because there was no record of Santos ever working there.
Politico claims that Santos also appeared before King County Superior Court Judge Sean O’Donnell in 2017, where the future congressman addressed the court during an arraignment for a buddy. Nevertheless, neither MSNBC nor NBC News has independently confirmed Politico’s assertion.
The judge inquired, “So what do you do for work?” Santos responded, “I work for Goldman Sachs and I’m an aspiring politician.
The judge inquired, “You work for Goldman Sachs in New York.” Santos said, “Yup.
Of course, we now understand what the trial judge did not: Santos lied.
When contacted for comment, his attorney has not answered.
The Republican congressman is already under investigation by local, state, federal, and international agencies, so it’s unlikely that his lying in court during another person’s arraignment would result in any severe consequences.

But as Santos’ career on Capitol Hill advances, it’s important to keep in mind that he hasn’t just lied to voters and reporters—apparently, he also lied to a judge in a courtroom setting.
The congressman admitted, “I’ve been a terrible liar,” in an on-air interview this week, but it wasn’t entirely obvious to me whether he was admitting to deceiving people or lamenting the fact that he wasn’t very good at being a phony.

Santos continued, in the same interview, “I ran in 2020 for the same exact seat for Congress and I got away with it then,” in an apparent reference to his blatant deceptions.
It appears that he can no longer get away with telling such lies.
