Rangel: No accusations coming from CongressBy Bill Allison Mar 24 2009 7:36 p.m.
Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Rangel said that the charge against him has no merit and has no facts, and he repeatedly asserted that no one outside of the press " he specifically called out a New York Times reporter " has made allegations and that there has been no accusations coming from the Congress.
Rangel said several times that no one other than a reporter has accused me. When pressed on why the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct has not issued a ruling in the matter, which is now six months old, Rangel cited the holiday break and other Congressional recesses as a potential reason for the inquiry taking so long.
As to there being no accusations coming from Congress -- well, consider the source.
