Alleged Dem harasser Rep. Conyers: Don’t believe dox ‘paid for by a partisan alt-right blogger’

The Detroit congressman and civil rights movement veteran announced today he is stepping down from his post as the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee in the wake of the release of documents related to his cash settlement of sexual harassment accusations.

“I deny these allegations, many of which were raised by documents reportedly paid for by a partisan alt-right blogger,” Rep. John J. Conyers Jr. (D.-Mich.), whose settlement paperwork was posted by Buzzfeed late Monday night after they were passed to that site by journalist Michael Cernovich. “I very much look forward to vindicating myself and my family before the House Committee on Ethics.”

In the last session of Congress, Conyers was an unexpected ally of Speaker Paul D. Ryan Jr., (R.-Wis.), when the speaker actively blocked efforts by House conservatives to force a floor vote on the impeachment of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.

Conyers said he informed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) of his decision.

“To be clear, I would like very much to remain as ranking member,” said the combat veteran of the Korean War.

“There is still much work to be done on core concerns like securing civil rights, enacting meaningful criminal justice reform, and protecting access to the ballot box,” he said. “These challenges could not be more pressing in the face of an Administration that cares little for the rule of law and a president whose actions and conduct cheapens our discourse every day.”

The congressman also said he was wary of his being the ranking member on such an important committee has become a distraction to his Democratic colleagues.

“I am grateful to my colleagues who have called for due process before weighing judgment. I would urge them to continue to do so for any Member accused of wrongdoing. Basic fairness requires no less.”

Conyers is the most senior member of Congress and a founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Pelosi is Emboldened by Coronavirus Bailout, Vows to Dupe Republicans Harder Next Time

The Democrats’ socialist agenda is winning big during the coronavirus panic.

Published

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled the wool over the eyes of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans with last week’s $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The disaster relief money was earmarked for many liberal pet projects, and Pelosi aims to do the same thing for the next round of bailouts.

She said on Monday that House Democrats are already preparing another massive stimulus bill, using the coronavirus pandemic to enact more socialism. She is likely to include massive infrastructure spending and serious government intervention into the health care markets in the upcoming legislation.

“Our first bills were about addressing the emergency. The third bill was about mitigation. The fourth bill would be about recovery. Emergency, mitigation, recovery,” Pelosi said during a conference call.

“I think our country is united in not only wanting to address our immediate needs — emergency, mitigation, and the assault on our lives and livelihoods — but also, how we recover in a very positive way,” she added.

Republican leaders are up in arms about how Pelosi is exploiting a crisis to get her partisan agenda muscled through Congress, but it is unclear if they have the courage to actually stop her.

“They’re approaching it — it seems like — as an opportunity to pass their political and ideological agenda. We’re approaching it as, ‘How do we protect the public health and our economy?’ And those are pretty divergent goals,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said.

Pelosi is eager to exploit the coronavirus crisis quickly and use the panic and fear in the public as an excuse to massively increase government spending and control.

“I do think that it is really important that as soon as we are here, we are ready to pass legislation,” she said.

President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans did Pelosi’s bidding when they moved forward a $2 trillion bailout bill that included funding for liberal policy goals that had nothing to do with the coronavirus.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) sounded the alarm over the sham and attempted to get Congress to actually deliberate and vote on the bill. It instead passed on a voice vote with most legislators sequestered away from Washington D.C.

Massie’s principled stand against Pelosi’s profligate spending bill earned him a tongue lashing from President Trump, who now wants Massie replaced in Congress because he’s too conservative.

With no Republicans seemingly willing to stand up against Pelosi, there will likely be more bailout socialism on the way as the Democrats use coronavirus for their far-left power grabs.
