Rep. John Conyers Deserves 'Due Process': Nancy Pelosi

Rep. John Conyers D-Mich. speaks at Wayne State University in Detroit. Democrats have been quick to support the “me too” chorus of women _ and some men _ who have stepped up to allege sexual misconduct and Rep. John Conyers Deserves 'Due Process': Nancy Pelosi

"The right wing is now quoting as me praising him for his work on that, and he did great work on that".

But Pelosi would not say whether she would ask Conyers to at least temporarily step aside from his leadership position, something she has asked other lawmakers embroiled in ethics scandals to do while the investigations are ongoing. "On one occasion, she alleges that Conyers asked her to work out of his room for the evening, but when she arrived the congressman started talking about his sexual desires", BuzzFeed revealed in its report. The alleged victim said he fired her because she turned down his sexual advances. Conyers has acknowledged the settlement but denied any wrongdoing. And a former staffer, who anonymously filed and then withdrew a lawsuit, said that Conyers touched her "repeatedly and daily" from May to to July 2016. She dropped the complaint after the court refused to leave it sealed.

Pelosi said of the recent wave of sexual assault allegations emerging across the country, "Something very transformative is happening. This is so wholesome, so refreshing, and so different".

Todd asked what she meant by "zero tolerance" if Conyers won't be suspended or asked to step down from his role on the Judiciary Committee.

"We are strengthened by due process", she added. "Just because someone is accused - and was it one accusation?"

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi defended embattled Democratic Michigan Rep. John Conyers Sunday, calling the 88-year-old congressman "an icon". "He's done a great deal to protect women". "The Violence Against Women Act".

Conyers faces a House Ethics Committee investigation over allegations that he sexually harassed and discriminated against members of his staff.

"As John reviews his case", she added, "I believe. he will do the right thing".

Though she argued that both Conyers and his accusers were entitled to "due process", Pelosi said the veracity of the accusations was "for the ethics committee to review", and dodged a question about whether she believed his accusers. But [Conyers] understands what is at stake here and he will do the right thing.
