House Speaker Nancy Pelosi won't consider removing Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charles Rangel from his powerful post before the ethics panel wraps up a wide-ranging investigation of the New York Democrat.
Some fellow Democrats would like Rangel to step aside as chairman in the wake of the ethics ruling. But the speaker continues to stand by Rangel after the House ethics committee slapped him on the wrist for violating House rules by accepting trips to the Caribbean that were sponsored, in part, by corporations.
It is a public admonishment," Pelosi said in a taped interview airing Sunday on ABC's "This Week." "It said he did not knowingly violate House rules. So that gives him some comfort."

Charlie is lucky that he’s not a Republican. He’d be toast by now. Being a liberal, commie ‘RAT does have its advantages.
Exactly. The double standard of the Dems and the MSM is alive and well.
So Nancy are you calling Uncle Charlie incompetent? That’s the only other possibility.
Rangel knows all of Pelosi’s Dirty Underware and she knows it! She can’t throw him under the Garbage Truck because she knows he will take HER with Him as well as the rest of the RATS! One CANCER CELL never Kilss another CANCER CELL! Pelosi DEPENDS (not referring to her underwear protection) on the Stupidity of the Average Democrat Idiot (I mean Voter!) to swallow Her Lies, Treasonous Acts, Corrupt Acts and her Sheer Pschotic and Bizarre Behavior!!! Outside of the above, I am sure Bugeyes Piglousy is a very good person....and want to say nothing negative about the WITCH!
If the media would bore down on Rangel’s corruption as hard as they did the “wide stance” Republican he would have to go, but then the whole point of the endless stories about the Republican was not to expose corruption, but to show him and all Repubs as objects of scorn and ridicule in the eyes of the public. The meme is that Republicans are a national joke and only Democrats are serious about governing.
Pelosi said in a taped interview airing Sunday on ABC's "This Week." "It said he did not knowingly violate House rules. So that gives him some comfort."
Oh, I get it. It's only ethical if you choose it to be ethical.
Clearly, the ethics standard for Democrats is not knowing their misconduct violated House rules absolves them from its consequences.
In other words, they only have to play dumb...
...or before he is officially charged with a crime...
...or before is convicted...
...or before he is sentenced...
...or before his appeal is considered... etc...
Better hes there. Just looks worse for them in the end.
Hey, she scratches his back and he scratches hers.
