Mattera v. Rangel Headed For Trial

July 29, 2010

Amid news that Rangel couldn't negotiate a deal and the matter is now in the trial phase:

The deal between the lawyers will have little meaning if the committee members don't approve it, and Republicans said at the proceeding they were insisting on going forward with a trial. The panel is evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans.

"Mr. Rangel was given multiple opportunities to settle this matter. Instead, he chose to move forward to the public trial phase," said Rep. Jo Bonner of Alabama, the senior Republican on the ethics panel

Chairman Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., has made clear that she wants the committee to be unanimous — leaving little chance for agreement without Rangel capitulating on virtually all counts.

… seems a good time to re-visit this clip from Jason Mattera's highlight reel. Jason is an editor with Human Events, now. Sorry, Charlie, looks like it was our "Goddamned business." You are headed to trial in the People's House, after all. Heh!

    I still think republicans getting involved in this is a no win situation. Everyone knows how corrupt Charlie is, but it’s not as if Harlem would replace him with an honest man. As long as he loses his committee chairmanship, we’re doing ok.

    Any time that Congress spends trying one of its members for corruption, is time they can’t spend passing more bills. That’s a good thing, in my book.

    You have to be pretty darn corrupt (or too embarrassingly obvious) for Congress to go after you.

    No sweat, I’ll get off, I’m a democrat fer Christ sake!
