Rangel left the hearing as the panel went into executive session to decide his fate. Followed by reporters down the hall to the elevator, Rangel said he didn’t think he should comment.
“I really don’t think that I should be discussing anything about this proceeding while it’s going on,” Rangel said. “I don’t want to miss this vote,” he said before boarding an elevator.
Unlike when he appeared before the panel earlier this week, Rangel was accompanied by a security detail on Thursday.
