Republican Rep. George Santos of New York likely committed campaign fraud and other ethical violations, a House Ethics subcommittee unanimously concluded in a new report Thursday.

Santos “blatantly stole from his campaign” and “sought to fraudulently exploit every aspect of his House candidacy for his own personal financial profit,” the Ethics Committee said in a summary of the report.

The full ethics panel, led by Republican Rep. Michael Guest of Mississippi, unanimously adopted the report from its investigative subcommittee and voted to refer its findings to the Department of Justice.

A spokeswoman for Santos did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment.
