New York Republican Rep. George Santos has vowed to stand for another expulsion vote in the House as the latest effort to remove him from Congress appears to be gaining steam.

House Speaker Mike Johnson on Monday stated that he had spoken with the New York lawmaker about his options over the Thanksgiving break after the House Ethics Committee released a damning report concluding he misled campaign donors and committed a litany of financial transgressions.

"Setting the record straight, My conversation with the speaker was positive and I told him id [sic] be standing for the expulsion vote," Santos posted on X. "Expel me and set the precedent so we can see who the judge, jury and executioners in Congress are. The American people deserve to know!"

Santos survived an expulsion vote earlier this month, though that vote occurred prior to the Ethics Committee's publishing its report and several lawmakers who voted against his ouster have indicated they would vote to expel him in the wake of the report's findings.

The New York Republican has previously stated that he will not seek reelection in 2024.
