Democrat Ethics Chair Asks Rangel To Be Seated

Democrat Chair of a House Ethics Subcommittee, Rep. Zoe Lofgren, asking embattled Dem Rep. Charlie Rangel to “be seated” after he rambled extensively following her simple question whether there was any objection to the committee counsel’s motion to introduce evidence against Rangel.

After letting him ramble for awhile, Lofgren asked Rangel to “be seated.”

After demanding that his ethics trial be delayed, Rangel left the hearing abruptly, stating that he was not given enough time to hire a legal team for himself.

Of course, Rangel's claim is simply a lie, as his legal team quit two months ago after a debate over strategy. Most likely, the team realized how corrupt Rangel was and wanted to go one way. The corrupt Rangel wanted to go another, and his lawyers just quit.

This meant that today, at the beginning of Rangel's legal hearings, that he had no legal representation. Of course, since his lawyers quit two months ago, he had plenty of time to assemble more people. Either Rangel could not get anyone to accept his case or he intentionally did not hire anyone in hopes that the court would delay the hearing. They did not, so Rangel walked out.

In court, Rangel faces a tremendous amount of counts against him, including over one dozen charges of financial and fundraising misconduct.

Book’im Dannoh!

His tax evasion alone would get anyone else a prison term.

But since he is a democrat he will probably only get a slap on the hand.

Rangel is guilty as sin and his actions only prove it.

Dude thought he was above the law. Still does. The legal team abandoned a corrupt, sinking ship and he never bothered to get a new team. Bye bye Charlie.

Bob, he sure is, I will be curious to see what kind of punishment they give him if any.

Pete, your right, the thinking one is above the law most of the time will catch up with a person. The had thing is too often nothing is done to punish them when they are caught.
