*California Rep. Maxine Waters is pressing the House ethics panel to set her trial date before the midterm elections in November, reports CNN.

“I have made a very public request to come out with the formalized charges and to set up a meeting to hear them,” she said Thursday in an interview with KCRW, a public radio station in Santa Monica, California.

“Let’s hope that they do it,” she said.

The 10-term congresswoman is accused of violating House rules by seeking federal assistance for a bank with financial ties to her husband.

“There is substantial reason to believe that Rep. Waters’ conduct may have violated” House rules, a House ethics committee report concludes.

Waters, who represents South Los Angeles, insists she did nothing wrong.

“I have not violated any House rules,” she said in a statement Monday. “I simply will not be forced to admit to something I did not do.”
