    Democrats were thrilled in January 2017 when Department of Justice Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz launched a probe into the DOJ and FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Two House Democrats, Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings and Michigan Rep. John Conyers, first requested an IG investigation into the FBI over alleged illegal leaks damaging to Clinton in an Oct. 4 2016 letter. Horowitz, an Obama appointee, announced his investigation into the FBI and DOJ’s handling of the Clinton probe four months later in January. Cummings praised Horowitz’s decision at the time, saying the investigation was needed to stave off...

    Democratic state Sen. Ian Conyers says he is running for the Michigan congressional seat long held by his grand-uncle, John Conyers. Ian Conyers made his announcement Friday in Detroit to join the 13th Congressional District race. The 88-year-old Democrat John Conyers was facing sexual harassment allegations and cited health reasons when he resigned in December from the post he held since 1964. …

    The sexual harassment reckoning has exposed many men in positions of power for their bad behavior. Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, Mark Halperin and others have either been fired or suspended for sexual misconduct. In the political realm, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) is resigning in early January after multiple women accused him of sexual harassment. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) made his way to the exit after his sexual harassment allegations made it into the limelight; he paid $27,000 to settle a claim in 2015. And yes, that’s our money he used for that expenditure. This reached a boiling point during the...
  • Don't Be Fooled: Democrats Are Eyeing Trump's Impeachment With This Guy On House Judiciary

    If there is a blue wave next year, expect impeachment proceedings, or endless investigations into the Trump White House, from Democrats. They’re already laying the groundwork for that course of action with their latest pick to fill the top minority spot on the House Judiciary Committee. With Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) exiting public life after allegations of sexual harassment, one of which involved a $27,000 settlement in 2015, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) took his place. He’s a constitutional law expert, so a fitting background for Democrats who want someone to be the point of the lance in their fight against...

    The Democratic Party, on Wednesday, voted overwhelmingly for Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) to replace resigned Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) on the House Judiciary Committee. Nadler, a constitutional law expert, won the spot over Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), an architect of immigration legislation, by secret ballot with 118 to 72 votes. The Washington Post noted on Thursday that the decision to fill their top spot on the committee demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willingness “[t]o ready themselves for a battle with Trump that could end with impeachment proceedings.” Should the Democrats regain control of the House during next year’s mid-term elections, they...

    **SNIP** The following morning, as Emily registered attendees at an SDCC breakfast in the lobby of the Harrisburg Hilton, Leach approached again. She was wearing a skirt and sitting at a table. She said Leach sat next to her, discussed his history of fighting for women, and suggested he might be able to help her find a job. And then “he grabbed my thigh, almost to punctuate his point with a cruel irony,” said Emily, who spoke on the condition of her last name not being used. In the moments that followed, Emily said, she felt “frozen in fear and...

    In short, stand up to all hate-spewing Dem bullies, both male and female, to bring them out under the much-needed spotlight. Why is it that the first three words that should be stoically stated by those wrongfully accused of sexual harassment are never heard? The three words should be “Show me the evidence” that brought about the accusations against me. Does anyone wonder why we have so far never heard these words?

    The drama between Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and President Donald Trump has reached absurd heights. First, there was that rather tweet from the president, which was not out of the ordinary. He accused Gillibrand of doing “anything” for campaign contributions. Gillibrand said this was a sexist smear, despite the president using that line on pretty much everyone. This all is part of the ongoing sexual harassment reckoning on the Hill and elsewhere. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) is gone, and Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) has signaled his intention to leave…whenever that may be. Gillibrand has called on Trump to resign, as...

    America is having a reckoning and it’s long overdue. I’m talking about the movement to hold sexual harassers accountable for their actions. This important movement is now shaking the halls of power in Congress and state capitols and I am determined to help lead it. I remember my first year in the Tennessee House of Representatives. It was 1998, and having spent my career as a nurse and an educator, I had a lot to learn about the legislative process. I immediately figured out that the state House had a “good ol' boy” culture - and learned about the inappropriate...

    More women are speaking out against boorishness and much worse that they claim to have experienced from prominent politically active men, encouraged by the courage of others, and by the contrition expected of their accused tormentors. A decision appears to have been made at the top levels of the Democratic Party that the sacrifice of the careers of their own pawns on the political chessboard is worthwhile in the quest to unseat a sitting POTUS. So, the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, John Conyers, only partially functional owing to advanced age, is stepping down from his safe seat...

    After spending almost 60 years in Congress as a politician and a staffer, Rep. John Conyers II has to decide which of his many relatives to pass Michigan’s 13th congressional district to. It’s like King Lear, if Shakespeare’s fictional monarch had been forced to step down after groping a woman in church. The 13th is a very nice district to inherit. Conyers has won it by 77%, 79% and 82%. Fidel Castro couldn’t ask for better elections. Whichever Conyers clan member gets it will be staying in Congress for 60 years. And will inherit Rep. Conyers’ government Cadillac Escalade. The...

    DETROIT (AP) — Michigan’s Republican governor announced Friday that Democrat John Conyers’ congressional seat will not be filled until the regularly scheduled November election, leaving it vacant for nearly a year. Gov. Rick Snyder decided the post will be listed twice on the August primary and November general election ballots. While unlikely, it is possible voters could choose one candidate to fill the vacancy until January 2019 and elect another to a full two-year term after that. **SNIP** Michael Gilmore, a Detroit attorney who is running for the seat, said not having representation in the House for nearly a year...

    A former congressional intern reportedly says she too was a victim of inappropriate sexual contact by now-retired Rep. John Conyers, saying Conyers even claimed during that encounter to have “inside information” on then-missing federal intern Chandra Levy. Courtney Morse, 36, described the incident from 16 years ago to The Washington Post. She said Conyers, D-Mich., mentioned the Levy case when Morse was a college intern for him and the congressman drove her home one night. Morse said Conyers wrapped his hand around hers while it was in her lap and said he was interested in a sexual relationship, the newspaper...

Courtney Morse told The Washington Post Conyers told her one night he was interested in a sexual relationship and held her hand in her lap after driving her home. Morse said when she rejected his advances, Conyers brought up Levy's case. “He said he had insider information on the case. I don’t know if he meant it to be threatening, but I took it...

    Rep. John Conyers on Tuesday announced his retirement from Congress while in a Michigan hospital bed, saying he is endorsing his son, John Conyers III, for the seat he has held for more than a half century amid growing sexual-misconduct allegations. “I’m retiring today,” the 88-year-old Michigan Democrat said in a phone interview with a local radio station from a Detroit hospital, where he has been since last month after experiencing chest pains. “I want everyone to know how much I appreciate [their] support.” Conyers, the longest-serving congressman, made the decision two weeks after sexual harassment allegations first surfaced and...

    A woman who says she worked for U.S. Rep. John Conyers for more than a decade says he slid his hand up her skirt and rubbed her thighs while she was sitting next to him in the front row of a church. Elisa Grubbs made the allegation in an affidavit released late Monday by her attorney, Lisa Bloom. Grubbs is the cousin of another accuser, Marion Brown, who reached a confidential settlement with Conyers over sexual harassment allegations but broke a confidentiality agreement to speak publicly last week. "Rep. Conyers slid his hand up my skirt and rubbed my thighs...

    Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.) tore into House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for her comments on NBC's "Meet the Press" earlier this week, saying Pelosi "ceded the moral high ground," by praising Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) amid sexual misconduct allegations. “I think that her comments on Sunday set women back and — quite frankly, our party back — decades,” Rice told reporters Wednesday, according to Politico. “I think that we ceded the moral high ground on Sunday when our leader said on ‘Meet the Press’ that John Conyers was an icon and we don’t even know who these women are,...
