(CNN) – Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-New York, said on the House floor Tuesday that he has no intention of resigning from Congress.
"If it is the judgment of the people here that I should resign," then the ethics committee should expedite its consideration of the charges against him, he said.
But "I am not going away. I am here."
Rangel is facing 13 counts of ethics violations, including a failure to pay taxes and properly report income.
