Rangel's Q&A: 'Not One Scintilla of Evidence'

WNYC

The only thing better than hearing Rep. Charlie Rangel go back and forth with reporters about his ongoing ethics trial is hearing him do it as he refers to himself in the third person.

Around the 6:00 mark, he says, "You can't find any monetary benefit that comes to Charlie Rangel. Not inferred, not implied, or NOTHING." At the 8:30 mark, he adds, "There's not one scintilla of evidence that supports that Charlie Rangel got a nickel of anything from anybody."
