Deliberations to resume in ethics trial after Rangel walks out

Washington (CNN) - The House panel looking into ethics allegations against longtime Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel of New York will resume its executive session deliberations Tuesday.

On Monday, Rangel walked out of the House ethics subcommittee trial, complaining he has not had sufficient time to hire a new legal team to respond to corruption allegations.

    Only in the DEMOCRAT party could a sloth like this survive without being forced to step down.

    He said he was "entitled" yesterday. That’s a real shocker. This is so prevalent in our political culture but Rangel is a shining example as he has run roughshod over rules and ethics and thinks nothing of it because he is entitled.

    Way to pull a Ted Steven's on us, Rangel. Unbelievable that he (Rangel) was re-elected.
