>> Stephen: WELCOME TO "THE

REPORT."

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

THANK YOU.

IF THAT'S THE BEST YOU CAN DO.

( LAUGHTER )

GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

NATION, IT HAS WITHIN FOUR YEARS

SINCE NANCY PELOSI PROMISED TO

DRAIN THE SWAMP OF POLITICAL

CORRUPTION IN WASHINGTON.

FOR MOST OF THOSE YEARS, IT

SEEMS LIKE THE DRAIN'S BEEN

CLOGGED BY A PARTICULARLY LARGE

HAIRBALL.

CHARLIE RANGEL.

BUT YESTERDAY THE HOUSE ETHICS

COMMITTEE FINALLY SNAKED THE

PIPE.

>> THE NEW YORK DEMOCRATIC

CONGRESSMAN CHARLES RANGEL WAS

CONVICTED BY HIS PEERS IN THE

HOUSE ON 11 OUT OF 13 COUNTS OF

ETHICS VIOLATIONS.

>> Stephen: 11 FLY GRANT

ETHICS VIOLATIONS.

MAN, THEY ARE GOING TO THROW THE

BOOK AT HIM.

>> RANGEL IS LIKELY TO FACE A

FORMAL LETTER OF REPRIMAND.

>> Stephen: A FORMER LETTER OF

REPRIMAND.

CHARLIE RANGEL, YOU GOT MAIL.

YOU HAVE BEEN SENTENCED TO READ

SOME SENTENCES.

NOW, FOLKS, IT MAY NOT SOUND

LIKE MUCH TO YOU AND ME, BUT

THESE CONGRESSIONAL LETTERS OF

REPRIMAND PULL NO PUNCHES.

THEY'RE NOT TYPED UP IN SOME

FRIENDLY FONT LIKE GERIMAND.

NO, THEY USE THE MOST JUDGMENTAL

FONT, LIKE TIMES ROMAN OR

AERIAL, ATAL SIZED, POLLED.

-- BOLD.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT, CONSIDERING

HOW SERIOUS THESE CHARGES ARE,

HE MIGHT RECEIVE CAPITAL

PUNISHMENT.

( LAUGHTER )

CHARLIE RANGEL, I HOPE YOU

LEARNED YOUR LESSON, SIR,

BECAUSE THE NEXT TIME YOU COMMIT

11 ETHICS VIOLATIONS TO THE TUNE

OF $9 MILLION, THAT LETTER WILL

BE SENT HOME TO YOUR PARENTS.
