    So what, at most he'll get a "censure" whatever that is.

    Gee... all that's left now is a slap on the wrist.

    Just remember... if this was you or me, we'd be dressed in prison orange.

    and yet, he will still serve his term, maybe a slap on the wrist or public admonishment

    i'll bet the ignorant voters of his district will still vote this worm , crook, liar in for another therm
    interesting it is. look at the demographics of his electorate............they are all sheep

    term limits would keep these idiots from putting crooks like this in office again

    nothing will become of this im sure, that is just how washington works.....but the truth is out so great work for the ethics people.........they deserve high fives all around

    What a big surprise. It's kind od a sad ending for old Charlie. While I didn't agree with his politics he was a vetern and he did always stick to his guns – no matter how stupid the issue.

    Rangel is a thug and is the reason why term limits should be started. He's a joke. Seriously. New Yorker's get him out of there!

    Hopefully the first on many. We're tired of the corruption (both parties). Time to drain the swamp of ALL the corruptocrats.

    He won't even get censure or any other admonishment. They only wanted to have the trial, find him guilty and that's it. The elections are over, and the dems can't do any more to tarnish their image.

    He should be arrested. His personnal assets confiscated. Waterboarded till he confesses. Then simply turned out on the streets to fend for himself.

    Actually, he's likely to get a reprimand. Isn't that great? He won't be expelled or prosecuted, just reprimanded. Which is really no more than a slap on the wrist.

    Expell him from Congress and prosecute him as nicely as possible

    And what are they going to do to him? No, No. Bad Boy.

    Yea, so. A slap on the wrist, and don't do that again Charlie.
    Sorry, but the CBC is so corrupt and it infiltrates thru our whole congress. Call me Cynical, but I think we should throw bums out. Unfortunately there are too many in America that love their individual bum to make that happen.

    Worthless Dems won't do anything about it. This creep should be in prison.

    Finally, a Sign of the Apocalypse has come!! A Democrat-controlled committee ACTUALLY convicts one of their own. The offenses HAD to be SO egregious, that there was nothing else they could do. I hope he does TALL time. Rangel is despicable subhuman swill. I hope the new Republican House will resurrect the HUAC, and start investigating the entire wretched White House, and everyone connected to that "hive of scum and villany". Yeah, that's right, I said it.

    The guy is a freaking crook and shake down artist. He's a disgrace and what's an even bihger disgrace is the Demicrat party has been protecting him for years. He forgot to report $600,000 in income he forgot to report rental income he had 4 rent controlled apartments and just recently he raided PAC money for $339,000 which is also stealing from the Demicrat party.

    What is so "breaking news" about this? Like we didn't know it already.

    Ruling class – they all think they are above the laws they write for us. They exclude themselves in mind, spirt, and reality. They pay themselves too much and exempt themselves for all the lawas they write – we need do douche the democrats

    This is in the old Congress which is controlled by his party. They will sweep this under the rug and give him nothing.

    Excellent.

    Now crucify him.

    No, really... Nail him to a cross and crucify him in front of the capitol building.

    Now that's good solid journalism. Rich with depth and texture. Great human interest angle as well.
