Judge Grants Postponement in Rep. George Santos Case as Prosecutors Seek More Time for Discussions

A judge has agreed to postpone a scheduled meeting in the case of Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.) after federal prosecutors requested more time for discussions.

The status conference, originally set for Thursday, will now take place on October 27.

Prosecutors stated that the delay was necessary to allow Santos to review case material they are providing to him.

Santos, who was indicted on 13 federal charges in May, including allegations of misleading campaign donors and fraudulently receiving unemployment benefits, has pleaded not guilty. He has recently stated that he is not interested in a plea deal at this time but has not ruled it out in the future.

Santos has faced calls for resignation or expulsion from Capitol Hill but maintains his innocence and intends to serve out the remainder of his term.
