Rep. Waters wants ethics trial now

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is calling on the ethics committee to hold her public ethics trial before the end of the year.

"I am here because I am disappointed that the committee has chosen not to hold my hearing," she said. "Since it has been canceled, I, like you am looking for answers."

Waters, who held a press conference outside the committee room where the trial was supposed to be held, also said that she had been denied due process and demanded that "this issue be resolved immediately."

The ethics committee more than a week ago abruptly canceled the trial, which was scheduled for Monday morning, citing the discovery of new documents as the reason for the delay. Waters disputes the relevance of the documents and has accused the panel of having a weak case and stalling the trial in order to better prepare.

Waters also used Monday's press conference to lash out at her hometown newspaper, the Los Angeles Times, refusing to answer a question from its reporter.

"I know where you stand," she told the reporter.

Waters, a senior member of the Financial Services Committee, is accused of using her position to arrange a meeting between Treasury Department officials and the National Bankers Association regarding One United Bank. At the time, Waters's husband was a significant shareholder in the bank and had formerly served on its board of directors.

Like Rangel, if she commited a crime, who cares what the DUmmyRATS try to ignore or white wash. As soon as the adults take over, bring criminal charges to bear.

I say do the trial, it will keep them busy and they can't push anymore socialist bills through.
