WASHINGTON (AP) — Two House ethics committee lawyers have been suspended, possibly ending any chance that Rep. Maxine Waters of California will get the ethics trial she has demanded this year.

Waters was to go on trial before eight House members on Nov. 29. The ethics committee postponed the proceeding on Nov. 19, citing the discovery of new evidence but not mentioning the suspensions.

On Wednesday, the lawyer for suspended attorneys — including the lead attorney on the Waters case — said the staff members were placed on paid the same day the postponement was announced.

Waters is charged with improperly trying to obtain federal bailout money for a bank in which her husband owns stock and formerly was a director. She has denied the charges.
