The House Speaker who promised the most ethical Congress ever is stalling on action against corruptocrat Democrat Rep. Charlie Rangel. And she’s gone even further by minimizing his ethics violations because they haven’t endangered national security.
Rep. Charlie Rangel’s admonishment for violating House gift rules “is not good,” but his actions did not put the nation at risk in any material way, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Sunday.
Pelosi said it is not her place to interfere in any investigations of the matter and said she would not get involved politically.
“But the fact is, is that what Mr. Rangel has been admonished for is not good,” she said on ABC’s “This Week.” “It was a violation of the rules of the House. It was not a–something that jeopardized our country in any way.”
The broader ethics investigation of Rangel’s past tax practices, financial disclosures and personal property arrangements is still ongoing.
But hey, it’s not like those jeopardize our country in any way! Right, Speaker Spic-and-Span?
