U.S. Representative Charles Rangel (D-NY) walks outside his Capitol Hill office followed by members of the media in Washington, July 29, 2010. Rangel is near a deal on ethics charges that would let him avoid a trial that fellow Democrats fear could hurt them in the November election, an aide for the New York lawmaker said on Thursday.
