House ethics committee delays Rangel hearing

A New York Democratic colleague of Rep. Charles Rangel told CNN on Thursday that Rangel and the House ethics committee are "close to a settlement" involving Rangel's alleged violations of House rules.

Earlier, Rangel said he doesn't plan to attend an ethics committee
hearing where the allegations were to be made public.

The committee delayed the start of the hearing without giving a reason, increasing speculation that lawyers for Rangel might be trying to reach a deal with the panel to avoid the public airing of the veteran legislator's alleged wrongdoing.
