Rep. Charlie Rangel attempted to settle ethics charges against him on Thursday, but Republicans say it’s too late. Instead, the House ethics panel brought up 13 charges against Rangel, including failure to report more than $600,000 in assets and income from a rental property in the Dominican Republic. It was reported earlier on Thursday that Rangel had reached a deal to settle the charges, but Republicans rejected his offer. "Mr. Rangel was given multiple opportunities to settle this matter. Instead, he chose to move forward to the public trial phase," said Rep. Jo Bonner of Alabama, the senior Republican on the ethics panel. A failure to settle means Rangel will be brought up before a public trial.
