As previously reported, it was revealed Monday evening that Democrat Rep John Conyers has been accused of sexual harassment by multiple women. According to affidavits, Conyers used taxpayer money to fly women into D.C. to meet with him in hotel rooms!
The documents were first provided to BuzzFeed News by Mike Cernovich.
Michigan Rep. John Conyers, a Democrat and the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 with a former employee who alleged she was fired because she would not “succumb to his sexual advances.”
Buzzfeed also reported that staffers were tasked with flying women in for Conyers using Congressional resources!
Former employees also said that Conyers made it very clear that if they performed ‘personal favors’ it would lead to salary increases and promotions. It was well known Conyers was having affairs with multiple female staffers. He often made sexual advances towards women and grew angry if they brought their husbands around.
Conyers denies the allegations, however; he knew exactly what he was doing and used sneaky tactics to deliberately cover up the settlements to various women.
In one case, Conyers paid a woman a settlement through payroll (via taxpayer money) as if she were a ‘temporary employee’. Buzzfeed explains:
In this case, one of Conyers’ former employees was offered a settlement, in exchange for her silence, that would be paid out of Conyers’ taxpayer-funded office budget. His office would “rehire” the woman as a “temporary employee” despite her being directed not to come into the office or do any actual work, according to the document. The complainant would receive a total payment of $27,111.75 over the three months, after which point she would be removed from the payroll, according to the document.
The draft agreement viewed by BuzzFeed News was unsigned, but congressional employment records match the timing and amounts outlined in the document. The woman left the office and never went public with her story.
It is important to note that in some cases sexual harassment lawsuits are settled as ‘personal injury’ so the victim doesn’t pay taxes on the settlement. This woman who was paid through payroll would then pay taxes on her ‘settlement’ which is another slap in the face to the victim.
Conyers’ wife is also a crook. As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, former Detroit City Council President Monica Conyers was sentenced to 37 months in prison for bribery charges in March of 2010.
What a lovely Democrat couple.
On Tuesday, conservative watchdog Judicial Watch released 79 pages of Justice Department records showing FBI leadership discussions about perceived conflicts of interest with the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
According to Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton, the watchdog obtained emails with FOIA lawsuit filed on July 24, 2017. The FOIA was prompted after the Justice Department officials refused to respond to an October 24, 2016 request.
Judicial Watch reports:
Judicial Watch today released 79 pages of Justice Department documents concerning ethics issues related to FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s involvement with his wife’s political campaign. The documents include an email showing Mrs. McCabe was recruited for a Virginia state senate race in February 2015 by then-Virginia Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam’s office.
The news that Clinton used a private email server broke five days later, on March 2, 2015. Five days after that, former Clinton Foundation board member and Democrat party fundraiser, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, met with the McCabes. She announced her candidacy on March 12. Soon afterward, Clinton/McAuliffe-aligned political groups donated nearly $700,000 (40% of the campaign’s total funds) to McCabe’s wife for her campaign.
An October 23, 2016, email shows McCabe running the response effort to a Wall Street Journal article that was published that day, titled “Clinton Ally Aided Campaign of FBI Official’s Wife.” McCabe provides Michael Kortan, the assistant director of Public Affairs, his version of a timeline of events surrounding the Clinton investigation and his wife’s campaign. McCabe said he contacted then-FBI Chief of Staff Chuck Roseburg about Jill McCabe’s candidacy and was told that “the D [Comey] has no issue with it.” (Judicial Watch earlier this month released documents showing that McCabe finally did recuse himself from the Clinton investigation only a week before last year’s presidential election.)

Nov. 20– Eight women have come forward with allegations that longtime television host Charlie Rose exposed himself to them, groped their breasts, buttocks and genital areas and made sexually-charged phone calls over the course of more than 10 years.
In extensive interviews with the Washington Post, the women recounted how Rose made unwanted sexual advances while they worked or aspired to work on Rose’s namesake PBS show between the late 1990s and as recently as 2011.
Ranging in age from 21 to 37, five of the women spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation from the veteran TV host. The women’s allegations have striking similarities, describing how Rose alternated between anger and flattery.
Rose, 75, who also co-hosts “CBS This Morning” and contributes to “60 Minutes,” apologized for his “inappropriate behavior” but insisted he was under the impression that the incidents were consensual.
“It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize,” Rose said in a statement. “I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.”
“I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will too,” he continued. “All of us, including me, are coming to a newer and deeper recognition of the pain caused by conduct in the past, and have come to a profound new respect for women and their lives.”

New York Post reports:
Newly revealed pictures show Sen. Al Franken grabbing self-described feminist Arianna Huffingtonon her bottom and breasts.
The never-before-published images, taken for a magazine in 2000 and obtained exclusively by The Post, include a number of frames showing the former “Saturday Night Live” star grabbing the media mogul’s buttocks as they pose back to back.
An even more shocking snap shows the pair posing on a bed, with Franken cupping Huffington’s breast with one hand.
“Franken was clowning around, but it really isn’t funny,” said a source from the shoot. “That’s his tactic, pretend like it’s all a big joke. Arianna was pushing his hands away. He was groping her. There was some fun attached to it, but she wasn’t enjoying it. She definitely told him to stop and pushed him away.”
“Franken stood there with his hand on her bottom for a long time, because there are numerous frames, each taken seconds apart, and his hand was there the whole time — his hand wasn’t just there for a quick moment,” a source told Emily Smith of the New York Post.
The pictures were taken by award-winning photographer Harry Benson.
Last Thursday, Franken was accused of groping, unwanted kissing by radio host and model Leeann Tweeden.
On Monday, Lindsay Menz came forward saying Democrat Senator Al Franken inappropriately touched her at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010.
Franken reportedly grabbed her buttocks tightly while taking a photo.
“It wasn’t around my waist. It wasn’t around my hip or side. It was definitely on my butt,”Lindsay Menz told CNN.
“I was like, oh my God, what’s happening,” Menz added.
Below is the photo Franken took with Menz.
