Washington (CNN) - Embattled New York Rep. Charlie Rangel brought up his Korean War experience Thursday while discussing his upcoming House ethics hearing.
"Sixty years ago, I survived a Chinese attack in North Korea," Rangel said. "And as a result I wrote a book that, having survived that, that I haven't had a bad day since. Today I have to reassess that."
The title of Rangel's autobiography is "And I Haven't Had a Bad Day Since."
