Nathan Reilly spoke to Newsday about U.S. Representative George Santos’ claims that the findings of the House Ethics Committee report will interfere with his ability to get a fair and impartial jury in his federal criminal trial next fall.
Nathan said Santos’ penchant for defending himself in social media posts, and in appearances on social media podcasts, may undercut his argument that the ethics report is biasing a potential jury pool.
“It's not like Congressman Santos has been silent,” said Nathan. “He's been out there. Talking about it and giving statements to the press and putting up things on social media, which sort of undercuts to some extent the notion that he is being totally prejudiced by the press coverage, because he's sort of leaning into it.”
