New York Republican Rep. George Santos is facing a House Ethics Committee probe, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy confirmed Tuesday. 

"Ethics is moving through, and if ethics finds something, we’ll take action. Right now we're not allowing him to be on committees from the standpoint of the questions that have arisen," McCarthy said, CNN reported.

Santos told the outlet he is "not concerned" about the probe.

The freshman Republican is currently facing multiple state, federal and international investigations. Santos admitted to fabricating his resume, but he has resisted calls to resign and so far has only stepped down from his Congressional committee assignments.
