Washington (CNN) - President Obama gave his thoughts on Friday regarding the ethics investigation into New York Rep. Charlie Rangel.
"I think Charlie Rangel served a very long time and served– his constituents very well. But these allegations are very troubling," Obama said in an interview with CBS News' Harry Smith. "He's somebody who's at the end of his career. Eighty years old. I'm sure that what he wants is to be able to end his career with dignity. And my hope is that it happens." Obama added.
Obama's comments come just hours after the House ethics subcommittee recommended that Rangel be reprimanded.
