WASHINGTON, DC – Top Congressional Democrat Nancy Pelosi is defending pro-abortion Congressman John Conyers, who has been accused of sexual harassment. Conyers has already paid to settle one sexual harassment claim and has been accused of another.

Conyers has stepped down from his post on the House Judiciary Committee, where he has been a longtime abortion advocate. Despite that, Pelosi defended him and said he is an icon. Daily Wire has more:

Pelosi (CA) appeared to defend accused sexual harasser Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) when confronted by NBC’s Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press” Sunday morning, calling Conyers an “American icon,” who “deserves due process.”

Pelosi struggled in the interview, often pausing and stuttering as she tried to grasp how to answer Todd’s pointed questions as to how the Democrats are planning to handle Conyers’s case — particularly in light of their tough talk on Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.

Pelosi called for “due process,” claiming that Conyers deserves a Senate ethics investigation because he has been such a strong supporter of women’s issues, including the “Violence Against Women Act,” which Pelosi claimed the “right wing” was now using against him.

Calling Conyers an “American icon,” Pelosi appeared to insist that there was something odd about Conyers’ position as an alleged sexual harasser — and even went on to claim the women accusing Conyers have not “come forward,” despite the fact that there appear to have been settlements, made with the assent of Congressional authorities, using taxpayer funds.

Conyers, 88, settled a complaint in 2015 to the tune of $27,000 with a former staffer who says she got fired for not “succumbing to his advancements.” His office reportedly settled it with taxpayer dollars.Conyers denies the allegations and insists they only settled with the accuser to avoid a court battle.

The second accuser, in a totally separate case, is a former scheduler who claims the Democrat tried to touch her “repeatedly and daily,” according to court documents obtained by BuzzFeed News.
