Fabulist Santos Now Claims He Was Targeted For Assassination

  • US Rep. George Santos has claimed that he was the target of an assassination attempt, after facing calls to resign from fellow New York Republicans over his fantastic lies about his life history.
  • Santos made the assassination claim in an interview with a Brazilian podcast last month, in which he also claimed he was mugged on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue by assailants who stole his shoes.
  • ‘In the summer of 2021, in the middle of Fifth Avenue at 55th (Street), I was mugged by two men,’ Santos told the Rádio Novelo podcast in Portuguese, according to a video of the interview published by MSNBC on Monday.
