Republican George Santos was kicked out of Congress today and he says this came without him officially being convicted of any crimes. I guess that sends the innocent until proven guilty concept right out the window. Byron Donalds did not like this result and explained why. NBC News reported the following:

The vote was 311-114, with two voting present. Santos had already put his winter jacket on, left the chamber and sped through the speaker's lobby before the vote total was announced.

 

"It's over," Santos said before heading to his vehicle outside the Capitol.

"They just set a new, dangerous precedent for themselves," he added, noting that he's the first House member in modern history to be expelled before a federal conviction.
