(CNN) - Longtime Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel of New York will be the subject of the House Ethics Committee's first corruption trial in almost a decade unless his attorneys reach an agreement to settle his charges.
The House Ethics Committee on Thursday will make public a report of Rangel's alleged violations. After a nearly two-year investigation of Rangel, the committee's report could bring a trial by a panel subcommittee in September.
A formal hearing would be a trial-like session involving formal charges with lawyers for the House acting as prosecutors and Rangel's attorneys defending him, but some experts don't foresee Rangel making it to the trial stage.
Its called "dodge ball" and the crooked politician always wins!!
he needs to be in jail...
With OBAMA in the Oval Office they will do nothing to Rangel.
Simple......he pays a fine, walks, and no one talks about what he did.
That's how all of the wealthy and powerful people are treated, when they do wrong.
Once a crook always a crook, this guy should be behind bars !!!
you can bet a deal will be made. If he was a conservative he would have been kicked out a long time ago. But Queen Pelosi must cover for her own.
It will be up to the people in Rangels district to make sure that he is out of office in November....period!!!!
no deals – let it pass the scrutiny of the trial and justice for whatever truth can be proven. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time vs. if the glove don't fit they must acquit. Either way they need to drain the swamp as promised.
this guy is a joke......term limits are needed......get a real job and stop working the system you hack.........
