Six members of the House Ethics Committee including its chairman have recused themselves from any matter involving Rep. Maxine Waters, including an internal investigation looking into whether the panel mishandled a two-year conflict-of-interest case against the California Democrat.
The House ethics committee split along party lines Tuesday as Republicans demanded pre-election trials for two prominent Democrats, Reps. Charles B. Rangel and Maxine Waters.
Mrs. Lofgren "has repeatedly refused to set either the Rangel or Waters trial before the November election," Mr. Bonner said.
