Republican who allegedly lied about his background responds to NY Times bombshell by blaming 'the left'

Rep. George Santos (R-NY), who is known for fabricating his resume, is urging the Department of Justice (DOJ) to investigate Hunter Biden.

The congressman is currently under multiple federal and criminal investigations, according to TIME, and has been asked to resign from his position by several colleagues and constituents.

Santos tweeted Saturday, "The DOJ has had 2+ years to build a strong case against Hunter Biden and many members of the Biden family. Instead the weaponized justice system is going after conservatives with political bias. If they can do it to Trump imagine what they can do to us?"

Twitter users immediately implored the lying lawmaker to worry about his own probes.

@CDeanneRowe: "Notice @Santos4Congress has turned off the comments on his tweets. He’s the last person who should be going after the DOJ."

@STOPVickie: "Hopefully they can take you to prison."

Ryan T. Loy: "Zero credibility coming from a guy whose mom died twice"

@diamondstar62: "The pathological liar says what?"

@imamandajo: "Oh sweetie, you should sit this one out."

Jeff Mayers: "You really want to go there? Given your well documented history?"

@WalshJackMD: "You've got a trail of things to be worried about."

@paulwiggins: "Can't think of a single reason why Mr Santos would be concerned about a fraud investigation."

Ken Pisani: "Imagine pretending this was an original thought, what kind of complete fraud would OH NEVER MIND."
