Unlike previous attempts to remove the embattled New York Republican, the latest push led by Ethics Committee Chair Michael Guest (R-Miss.) could actually get the two-thirds majority that is required to expel him. If all Democrats vote to boost Santos — the most likely outcome — then roughly 80 GOP members would need to join them in order to oust him.

That includes a number of members who have shared their support publicly. Only eight GOP members said that they would still vote against such an effort. And the number of members in support is ticking up.
