The ethics trial of Rep. Maxine Waters was postponed Friday, as the House ethics committee found new documents connected to charges that she improperly tried to help a bank in which her husband owned stock.Waters, a senior member of the Financial Services Committee, was set to go on trial Nov. 29 before a jury of eight House colleagues. She has vigorously fought the charges, saying she did nothing more than set up a meeting between an association of minority-owned banks and U.S. Treasury officials.
