Washington (CNN) - Veteran Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel of New York confirmed Tuesday that his lawyers are discussing a possible settlement with lawyers for the House Ethics Committee that would avoid a public hearing this week on ethics allegations against him.
"Negotiations are much like the arc of legislative conferences, and that is until everything is agreed upon, there's absolutely nothing agreed upon," Rangel said while leaving the House floor after several votes.
He declined to talk about any details of the negotiations handled by his legal team, saying he was not participating in the talks himself.
Get all the owed taxes with penalties and fines and throw the bum out. and then move on to the next crook.
Democrats will do anything to get this story off the front page of the news.
Come on Charles say it, say it; GUILTY!
Hey dems! If a republican is harassing you just say UNION and they will go running and screaming into the nearest airport bathroom stall! It so amuzeing
Hey dems! If a republican is harassing you just say UNION and they will go running and screaming into the nearest airport bathroom stall! It so amusing and it works!
This old shyster SOB will walk away from it all just watch. A Doctor friend of mine had to do a year in Federal prison and pay thousands in IRS penalties for alot less than what this scum sucking pig has done. Career Dems in their finest hour!
Please retire. You have had your 15 minutes of fame
The only just "settlement" is Rangel's resignation.
dems continue excusing dems so more dems can screw up the govt. The ethics committee has no honesty, and no charactor to let this crook off with a slight slap on the hand with w wet noodle. He is a snake and one of Nancy's guarded ones. This just continues to show the lack of respect for the American People.
He settlement talked with the IRS (not everyone has this privilege), he has settled his leadership position give away (to a temporary give away)
and now he will settle with the ethics committee (which is "the guiltier judging the guilty" since these politicians are all crooks).
If we do not get to see justice done, we do not believe in it. At the time that one party rules the presidency and the senate, they can do what they want– until election day (day of judgement my friends, and it soon approaching!)
The democrats tag the republicans "the party of no" but are becoming themselves "the party of evil."
Chicken....he should be subjected to the same as others who do wrong up there and actually get caught!! Charge him or send him back home!!!
Rangel is a great example of why it's time to get rid of incumbents in Washington.
Rangel has been "hangin' out" in Washington since Nixon was president.
