Santos has been ensnared in controversy since shortly after winning his election in November when he was accused of fabricating much of his biography on the campaign trail.
The corruption charges against Santos also include reporting a false $500,000 campaign loan and lying to the House about his assets.
A trial for Santos is scheduled for 9 September 2024, shortly before the elections that will determine control of the White House and both congressional chambers.
The House ethics committee has also said it is looking into allegations involving Santos. The investigative subcommittee contacted 40 witnesses, reviewed more than 170,000 pages of documents, and authorized 37 subpoenas, the committee said.
The ethics panel said it would announce its next steps by 17 November.
The House of Representatives on Wednesday overwhelmingly voted down a bid to expel embattled Republican Rep. George Santos of New York over his campaign lies and criminal charges.
The resolution to expel Santos from Congress, which was put forward by a group of his fellow New York Republicans, failed in a 179-213 vote, with 19 members voting present.
Thirty-one Democrats joined 182 Republicans in opposing the resolution, while 24 GOP members sided with 155 Democrats to support it.
Santos on Friday pleaded not guilty to a 23-count federal indictment accusing him of crimes including laundering funds to pay for his personal expenses, illegally receiving unemployment benefits, and charging donors’ credit cards without their consent.
Santos, who represents a small slice of New York City and parts of its eastern suburbs, would have been just the sixth to be expelled from the House in US history. Three of the five congressmen have been voted out for fighting against the US in the civil war.
