Waters demands conclusion to ethics case

Washington (CNN) - Rep. Maxine Waters, D-California, called on the House ethics committee Monday to either schedule her trial before Congress completes this year's lame duck session or explain why it won't go forward.

Waters' hearing before the committee was scheduled to begin Monday, but the ethics committee announced before Thanksgiving that the proceeding had been canceled due to the discovery of e-mail communications potentially affecting the case.

    Just my opinion, but I don't think that Waters is in the position to demand anything right now.

    Is this a SINNER in the WATERS?


    Okay, she does have a right to get this over with!! If they have NOTHING then come out with NOTHING so she can move on – that's all!!! If there is something – then come out with something – and do whatever you do when you find someone guilty.... In reality, "IF THE GLOVE DON'T (DOESN’T) FIT – YOU MUST ACQUIT"!

    Let's continue to Move American Forward with our current leader, President Barack Obama!!!

    Waters is great at demanding like funds for saving the bank in which her husband has a financial interest. Her arrogance is amazing and I love she demands everything but ethics of herself.

  6. Nancy Pelosi, the wicked witch of the west, the DemocRAT gift that just keeps on giving

    Yes, by all means let's have a showcase of DemocRAT corruption in Congress! But it found guilty, EXPEL THEM! Why waste time and taxes on this BS and then slap people on the wrist. The way to STOP this is to make examples of these corrput politicians.

    Sounds like the newly discovered email clears Waters. Besides, as long as the War Criminal Dick Cheney is walking around a free man, any case becomes irrelevant.

    First Charlie Rangel, now Maxine Waters, what complete arrogance and lack of integrity these two have shown. Slap em on the wrist, but both will be spewing there spin in the next Congress. Lets get on with it.
