House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she's "out of the loop'' in the House ethics committee's investigation of fellow Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel.

Rangel -- a longtime New York congressman and a former chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee -- is facing 13 counts of wrongdoing. Allegations include providing official favors in return for donations, hiding income and assets, and failing to pay taxes.

Pelosi is sidestepping questions about Rangel's future and whether he might once again lead that powerful committee in the future.

She tells ABC's "This Week'' that it's "an elementary discussion because what we have done is to wait and see what the committee decides."
