According to CNN, Santos traveled to court in Long Island for a scheduled status conference on Tuesday, where lawyers discussed a potential witness list for the case.

Santos is facing 23 criminal charges, including identity theft, fraud, and money laundering. His growing legal issues led to him being voted out of the House by his colleagues back in December.

His attorneys and the prosecutors in the case have previously signaled that a possible plea deal was being discussed, but the deal was never mentioned during Tuesday's hearing.

Reporters managed to catch up with Santos at the courthouse and asked if he missed his old job.

"Sure, it was fun," he said. "Of course I do. I worked really hard to get there."

During his brief tenure in office, it was quickly discovered that he told countless lies about himself while on the campaign trail.

After being ousted, he has struggled to maintain social relevance while using the internet and social media to make money.

When asked if he has had any luck finding a new job, Santos cryptically stated, "Nothing I want to report."

Santos is scheduled to reappear in court on August 13 and, if a plea deal is not met, the trial is expected to begin in September.
