George Santos exhibited a distinct fashion sense during his months in Congress. Photo: Jabin Botsford/Getty ImagesGeorge Santos knew how to make an exit. “The hell with this place,” the New York Republican declared to a scrum of reporters after his expulsion Friday from the House over allegations that he stole money from his own campaign and committed other misdeeds. He was just the sixth House member expelled and the first who wasn’t a convicted felon or a supporter of the Confederacy.

Illustration: Jarred BriggsTax breaks for charitable donations come in many flavors, and this year Congress has a new one for seniors called an IRA charitable gift annuity. It allows older owners of traditional IRAs to donate account funds to a charity and get tax breaks plus income payments for life. Brian and Deborah Smith of Park City, Utah, plan to try this option next year. That’s when Deborah Smith turns 73 and has to begin required withdrawals from her traditional IRA. She will donate $53,000 of her $550,000 account to the Episcopal church where the couple is active and Deborah serves on the board.

Rep. George Santos is interviewed by FOX News in the rotunda of the Cannon House Office Building before a vote to expel him from the House of Representatives on December 1, in Washington, DC. Anna Moneymaker/Getty ImagesThe House is expected to vote soon on a motion that would expel New York Republican Rep. George Santos from the chamber. An expulsion vote is not like a censure in that the member is not admonished by the chamber or shamed as they are with censure. They will decide how Santos’ office is cleared out, among other steps. Both Traficant’s and Myers' privileges were stripped immediately following the expulsion vote because they had previously been convicted of their crimes.

Rep. George Santos (R., N.Y.) delivered a speech this week in which he said it would be improper for lawmakers to vote to expel him before the legal process fully plays out. Photo: elizabeth frantz/ReutersWASHINGTON—The House voted Friday to expel embattled Rep. George Santos over allegations the New York Republican stole money from his own campaign and committed other misdeeds, in only the third expulsion from the chamber since the Civil War. The vote was 311 to 114, just slightly more than the two-thirds House supermajority required to remove a member. While Democrats and many Republicans supported the move to remove Santos, some—including Speaker Mike Johnson (R., La. )— had expressed reservations about expelling him before his criminal case had been resolved.

While almost all Democrats and many Republicans supported the move to expel Santos, more than half of GOP lawmakers—including Speaker Mike Johnson (R., La.) and other members of party leadership—said he shouldn’t be expelled before his criminal case had been resolved as it would set a bad precedent.

George Santos Expelled From Congress in Historic Vote

Still, some Republicans opposed Santos' expulsion, including nearly all members of the GOP leadership, because he hasn’t been convicted of a crime. Just five lawmakers have ever been removed from the House by an expulsion vote, and three of them fought against the union in the Civil War. Though many railed against Santos for embarrassing the party and the chamber more broadly, Republicans could hardly afford to lose his vote. “By voting yes to expulsion, Republicans and Democrats can stand for election integrity and against voter fraud because there is no more provable case of election fraud before this Congress than George Santos’ 2022 election fraud,” Rep. Nick LaLota, New York Republican, said on Thursday. “New Yorkers from Queens and Nassau counties deserve better than George Santos – a total fraud and a serial liar representing them in Congress.”Still, Santos teased this week that he may not be finished with Congress.

BOSTON (AP) — At a moment of record visibility and influence for Black attorneys in the United States, debates over race, criminal justice and democracy are increasingly at the center of the public conversation. In wide-ranging interviews with The Associated Press, six sitting Black attorneys general discussed the challenges and opportunities of serving as the top law enforcement officer in their respective states. Here are some of the biggest takeaways from the conversations:Black attorneys general are at the forefront of criminal justice reform effortsBlack attorneys general have emerged as some of the most prominent advocates of reform to the criminal justice system. Trump has lashed out at James, Bragg and Willis with language often evoking racist and stereotypical tropes, such as using terms like “animal” and “rabid.”Black Democratic attorneys general learn from and collaborate with one anotherThe interviewed attorneys general confirmed that they frequently call, text and communicate with one another. They also borrow tactics and policies from each other, several of the attorneys general said.

The authors of the subcommittee’s submission, in perhaps their most admirable achievement, summarized Santos’ grand political deception in a single sentence. (Santos’ first treasurer, Nancy Marks, resigned before pleading guilty to a conspiracy fraud charge and implicating Santos in a scheme to hoodwink donors.) Not coincidentally, all five swing-district Republican freshmen are expected to vote for Santos’ removal on Friday. In comments to reporters on Thursday, Santos promised more drama before he leaves town. “I’m going to be the first member of Congress expelled without any of those parameters.”On that point at least, Santos is telling the truth.

REUTERS/Cristina Chiquin/File Photo Acquire Licensing RightsGUATEMALA CITY, Dec 1 (Reuters) - Guatemala's ruling-party-led Congress on Friday stripped four electoral judges accused of fraud of their immunity from prosecution, in a move critics fear is aimed at blocking President-elect Bernardo Arevalo from taking office next month. The move by Congress is seen as an attempt to appoint judges who oppose Arevalo's election and is the latest in a series of measures that could hinder the transition of power. Orlando Blanco, a representative for the VOS political party, said the objective was to name anti-Arevalo judges. "They want to ignore the electoral results and they need the electoral court to abide by that decision," Blanco said.

Rep. George Santos of New York was finally expelled from Congress on Friday. AdvertisementRep. George Santos of New York was finally expelled from Congress on Friday by a 311-114 vote, with 2 lawmakers voting present. But even as more than two-thirds of the chamber voted to kick Santos out, over 100 House Republicans voted against the measure, arguing that the vote set a bad precedent. "I rise not to defend George Santos, whoever he is," Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida said on the House floor on Thursday," but to defend the very precedent that my colleagues are willing to shatter." Gaetz: I rise not to defend George Santos, whoever he is… — Acyn (@Acyn) November 30, 2023Rep. Clay Higgins of Louisiana, meanwhile, argued that the ethics committee's investigation "appears weaponized to me," echoing conservative claims about the justice system writ large.

Moments after House members cast a historic vote to expel Representative George Santos of New York, Speaker Mike Johnson banged the gavel with a grim look on his face. “In light of the expulsion of the gentleman from New York, Mr. Santos, the whole number of the House is now 434,” he announced gravely to an uncommonly silent House chamber, looking down with a faint grimace. It made official what had been apparent in recent days — that many of his fellow Republicans had been willing to defy his wish to keep Mr. Santos, a serial fabulist, in Congress, and that Mr. Johnson and his party were now facing ever-more brutal political math. Their slim four-vote majority has dwindled to just three. That will make governing more difficult for Republicans, who have already had immense trouble corralling their fractious members to steer legislation through the closely divided House.

This case requires us to determine whether the same rule applies to police encounters that take place on a bus. The mere fact that Bostick did not feel free to leave the bus does not mean that the police seized him. This court is not empowered to forbid law enforcement practices simply because it considers them distasteful. We therefore believe the district court erred in relying on whether the conduct ‘seriously affect plaintiff's psychological well-being’ ... As for the victims, the government now has license to transfer property from those with fewer resources to those with more.

DUBAI, Dec 1 (Reuters) - A member of the main advisory board of the COP28 climate summit resigned on Friday over reports that the UAE presidency used the meeting to secure new oil, gas deals, according to her resignation letter seen by Reuters. Hilda Heine, former president of the low-lying, climate vulnerable Marshall Islands, said reports that the UAE planned to discuss possible natural gas and other commercial deals ahead of U.N. climate talks were "deeply disappointing" and threatened to undermine the credibility of the multilateral negotiation process. "These actions undermine the integrity of the COP presidency and the process as a whole," Heiner wrote in the letter she sent to COP President Sultan al-Jaber. She added that the only way for Jaber to restore trust in the process was to "deliver an outcome that demonstrates that you are committed to phasing out fossil fuels."

Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.) arrives to speak about the House Ethics Committee report and potential expulsion from Congress this week during a press conference outside on Capitol Hill on Thursday, Nov. 30, 2023, in Washington, DC. The House voted Friday to expel Rep. George Santos from Congress for his alleged finance crimes and his campaign lies, shrinking the GOP's already slim majority. Santos is the sixth House member in U.S. history to be booted from Congress, and the third since the Civil War. Former Democratic Rep. Tom Suozzi, who left the seat in New York's 3rd congressional district to run for governor, has already launched a campaign to take it back. The resolution, brought by Santos' fellow New York Republicans was the latest effort to boot the embattled 35-year-old freshman lawmaker.

Away from the main stage, delegations and technical committees set to work on Friday with the mammoth task of assessing their progress in meeting global climate targets, specifically the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to within 2 degrees Celsius above preindustrial temperatures. The United Nations on Friday published its first draft for what could serve as a template for a final agreement from the COP28 summit, which ends Dec. 12. The summit also clinched an early victory by adopting a new fund to help poor nations cope with costly climate disasters. ___For daily comprehensive coverage on COP28 in your inbox, sign up for the Reuters Sustainable Switch newsletter here.

After months of congressional hand-wringing, Mr. Santos finally met his demise on Friday, after Republicans and Democrats each offered separate expulsion resolutions. The resulting debate on the House floor on Thursday captured the absurdity and unseemliness of Mr. Santos’s scandals. Mr. Santos is only the sixth member of the House to be expelled in the body’s history. Mr. Santos must still contend with the federal indictment in which prosecutors have accused him of multiple criminal schemes. (That company, Harbor City Capital, has been accused of operating a Ponzi scheme by the Securities and Exchange Commission, though Mr. Santos has not been implicated.)

WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. George Santos of New York is facing a critical vote to expel him from the House on Friday as lawmakers weigh whether his actions, fabrications and alleged lawbreaking warrant the chamber's most severe punishment. “I will not stand by quietly,” Santos declared on the House floor Thursday as lawmakers debated his removal. But some Republicans, including Santos' colleagues from New York, said voters will welcome lawmakers being held to a higher standard. In early March, the House Ethics Committee announced it was launching an investigation into Santos. ___Follow the AP's coverage of U.S. Rep. George Santos of New York at

Laxalt did not immediately respond to a request for comment, nor did DeSantis' campaign.

Donald Trump does not have immunity from civil lawsuits related to the U.S. Capitol riot, a federal appeals court panel unanimously ruled Friday. The ruling does not say that Trump is liable for allegedly inciting, while president, the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on Congress by a mob of his supporters, which injured more than 100 police officers. The ruling came after Trump, the front-runner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, challenged the federal district court lawsuits filed against him. Srinivasan, who was appointed to his seat by former President Barack Obama, was joined in the ruling by Judge Judith Rogers and Judge Gregory Katsas. Katsas was appointed by Trump and previously was a clerk for conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

He has admitted fabricating much of his biography, and federal prosecutors accuse him of laundering campaign funds and defrauding donors. At least 77 Republicans, along with the chamber's 213 Democrats, will have to vote for expulsion to meet that threshold.
