Pelosi defends Democrat creeper Conyers
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi defended Rep. John Conyers as “an icon in our country” on Sunday, after noting he deserves “due process” as he faces allegations of sexual misconduct.
“We are strengthened by due process,” the California Democrat said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “Just because someone is accused — and was it one accusation? Is it two? I think there has to be — John Conyers is an icon in our country. He has done a great deal to protect women — Violence Against Women Act, which the left — right-wing — is now quoting me as praising him for his work on that, and he did great work on that.
“But the fact is, as John reviews his case, which he knows, which I don’t, I believe he will do the right thing,” Pelosi said.

BuzzFeed reported last week the Democratic congressman from Michigan “repeatedly made sexual advances to female staff that included requests for sexual favors, contacting and transporting other women with whom they believed Conyers was having affairs, caressing their hands sexually, and rubbing their legs and backs in public.”
Pelosi demurred when asked if she believed the women who have accused Conyers.
“I don’t know who they are,” she said. “Do you? They have not really come forward.”
The matter is one left to the House Ethics Committee, Pelosi said, adding she has asked it to review whether Conyers misused congressional funds to pay for a settlement to one of his accusers.
It’s funny how Democrat creeps like Bill Clinton, Al Franken, John Conyers and the original creep and killer Ted Kennedy deserve due process. But Roy Moore who there is no proof of the allegations against him is immediately vilified by Democrats and the king of the swamp Mitch McConnell. Pelosi is protecting the swamp.
