Maxine Waters's attorney calls to drop corruption case
One day after a report threw further doubt on the House Ethics Committees handling of its investigation into Rep. Maxine Waters, the California Democrats legal team is calling for the panel to dismiss the case and is threatening to sue if the panel proceeds with the matter.

In a letter sent Tuesday evening to House Ethics Committee Chairman Jo Bonner (R-Ala.) and the panels ranking Democrat, Rep. Linda Sanchez (Calif.), Waterss attorneys Stanley Brand and Andrew Herman write that in light of Mondays Politico report, any further action by this Committee would be irredeemably tainted and without legal foundation.
