The House ethics committee announced yesterday that it will charge Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) with unnamed ethics violations
. The step to form an adjudicatory subcommittee to try Rangel is a rare step, one last used eight years ago in the case of former Rep. Jim Traficant (D-OH), who was then expelled from the House.
But Rangel isn't worried.
Asked by MSNBC's Luke Russert if he's worried about losing his job, Rangel got defensive.
