Disgraced George Santos Accuses Fellow Representative of Insider Trading

Controversial politician George Santos unleashed a barrage of accusations against fellow New York Republican Representative Nicole Malliotakis last Sunday. Speaking on CBS News’s The Point With Marcia Kramer, Santos claimed that Malliotakis utilized classified information from congressional briefings to profit from stock market transactions.

“She receives classified briefings as a member of the Ways and Means Committee,” Santos asserted. “Can somebody explain to me that she miraculously becomes a member of the committee and then she’s doing trades on NYCB with the Signature Bank collapse just a day before having an 80 percent stock hike? That’s not a lucky trade, Marsha, that’s a very well-informed trade.”

Santos went on to hint at the possibility of filing ethics complaints against other tristate politicians, both Democrats and Republicans, who played a role in his removal from the House. Representatives Mike Lawler, Nick LaLota, and Rob Menendez were specifically mentioned by Santos as potential targets for these complaints.

The embattled former congressman, who recently found himself entangled in 23 counts related to illegally obtaining unemployment benefits, aggravated identity theft, and credit card fraud, remains unapologetic about his political career. Despite being caught in a web of lies regarding various aspects of his life, Santos expressed pride in his legislative legacy.

“I feel like everything I stood for—I’m so proud of the legacy I leave behind, even with the short 11-month term that I served,” Santos declared. “I feel like every vote I took I can stand by and I can defend, and I’m proud of that. But regrets, plenty. Like, there’s always regrets, right.”

In a surprising twist, Santos also discussed his foray into the world of Cameo, a personalized video service. He claimed that the idea to join Cameo originated from inside the House, with a former member of Kevin McCarthy’s team suggesting he capitalize on his “large personality” for the bespoke video platform.

“He reached out and says, ‘George, you have such a large personality, people love you,’” Santos recounted McCarthy’s former staff member’s advice. “’You should just open a Cameo.’ I’m like, what’s a Cameo? So I looked into it.”

As Santos continues to make headlines with his accusations and unconventional career choices, the political landscape braces itself for potential fallout from his promised onslaught of ethics complaints against other prominent figures in the tristate area.
