Report: Lawyers Leave Rangel Ahead Of Ethics Trial

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — Congressman Charlie Rangel’s ethics trial in Congress was reportedly in doubt Wednesday because the Harlem democrat has no lawyers.

The Washington Post reports Rangel’s legal team has left the case and Rangel could decide to represent himself.

With the trial date just three weeks away, the paper notes it’s going to be tough for Rangel to find lawyers who can get up to speed with the details in time.

Rangel faces 13 ethics violations and could be expelled.

He’s also up for re-election next week.
