Nassau County legislator calls for security clearance of Rep. Santos be revoked


Nassau County Legislator Joshua Lafazan called for the security clearance of Rep. George Santos to be revoked Tuesday in front of Santos’ Douglaston office, citing multiple national security concerns. Lafazan announced he had written a letter to Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines, urging her office to take action.

Lafazan cited Santos’ alleged ties to Russian oligarchs and questions surrounding his background, financial ties and citizenship as reasons for revoking his access. As a result of these concerns, Lafazan argued that granting Santos access to national security documents could very well put American lives at risk.
