Republican Rep. George Santos has told the House GOP conference that he wants to be off the Science, Space and Technology Committee, along with the Committee on Small Business until his issues are resolved. Federal prosecutors are investigating Santos’ finances while he faces calls to resigns over the lies about his education, career, heritage and religion. Former Republican Rep. Joe Walsh joins AC360 to discuss Santos stepping down from his committees and if he thinks House Speaker Kevin McCarthy had anything to do with it.
Plus, an initial police report filed in the hours after the Tyre Nichols traffic stop suggested he was violent and “started to fight” with officers. Video later released shows the 29-year-old Black man subdued on the ground while getting punched and kicked by Memphis Police officers. CNN Chief Law Enforcement and Intelligence Analyst John Miller is the former NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism. He tells Anderson Cooper whether he thinks the officers involved were attempting to cover up or downplay what happened the night they stopped Nichols.
