Rangel To Give Up Chairmanship On Ways And Means Committee, Chuck Todd Reports

Representative Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) will voluntarily give up his chairmanship of the Ways and Means Committee, according to a Tweet by MSNBC’s Chuck Todd. The move could come as early as Tuesday night.

Todd also reports (via Twitter) that Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.) will temporarily takeover the committee.

A House ethics panel found last week that Rangel wrongfully accepted corporate-sponsored trips to the Caribbean.

More details to come.

UPDATE 9:39 PM ET — Pelosi’s “tepid” endorsement. The Hill spoke to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi Tuesday evening after her meeting with Rangel. The Hill reports:

After meeting with Rangel, Pelosi initially said, “No comment” when asked if Rangel remains panel chairman.

She added, “I guess he is still chair of Ways and Means…”

Last week, during an interview with ABC News, Pelosi agreed with interviewer Elizabeth Vargas that Rangel’s conduct “doesn’t pass the smell test.”
