Rep. Conyers: ‘I’m retiring today’
Detroit News [MI], by Jonathan Oosting & Melissa Nann Burke

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/5/2017 10:44:50 AM

Embattled U.S. Rep. John Conyers, the longest-serving member of Congress, will retire, rather than seek re-election amid allegations that he sexually harassed staffers, he said Tuesday. (Snip) “My legacy can’t be compromised or diminished in anyway by what we’re going through now. This too shall pass. My legacy will continue through my children,” Conyers said. “...I’m retiring today.” He endorsed his son, John Conyers III, to succeed him in Congress. Conyers made the announcement from a hospital bed. The 88-year-old dean of the U.S. House has repeatedly denied claims he mistreated staffers, but calls for his departure intensified last week

Comments:
Oh that´s wonderful. He want´s his son to succeed him. That corrupt dynasty has to end! His great nephew is also interested in the seat as is stated in the article. He can´t let his legacy be tarnished? What a sick, pathetic joke that is. I despise all the filthy corruption of politicians.

What did Conyers do (besides get elected) that Detroit should place his son in the position as his successor? This is what ticks off the average citizen.

FTA: "Earlier Monday, the congressman’s great-nephew, state Sen. Ian Conyers said his great uncle would retire and he would run for the seat in 2018. Rep. Conyers’ wife Monica and Reed were upset with Ian Conyers, with Reed tweeting that the reports of the retirement were “innuendo and rumor.”

Isn´t this rich. The family moves in right away to attack Ian Conyers. They want the son to get that position and stay there for 50 years.

Fortunately in our hereditary democracy, his brilliant son will take over the family business of corruption.

Conyers was accused of ethics violations in 2004 but no action was taken.

Conyers was also very vociferous in condemning Republicans for consensual extramarital affairs 20years ago during the Clinton impeachment, particularly Newt Gingrich.

Besides being corrupt, Conyers is an selfish, arrogant, elitist hypocrite.

Good riddance!! Congress will be a much better place without you.

Besides the crime and the corruption (Conyers´ wife actually went to jail for bribery), the public schools in Detroit (Conyers´ District covers half of Detroit as well as other contiguous areas) are abominable and have been for as long as anyone can remember. And Conyers together with the other leaders of the Dem Party have supported the teachers´ unions and opposed any hope for poor parents to get their children alternative schools. i.e. Conyers, like most of the CBC "Icons" hasn´t done a thing for his constituents except inspire resentment and anger and instilled a taste for generational government dependency. These "Icones" are monsters who rip off the taxpayers and their own constituents.

How pathetic and sad. ...But then, although he is old, ill and probably senile, he would probably be re-elected by his devoted lefty-dem supporters if they could vote for him again. sigh

Gowdy rejects call to investigate
Trump’s alleged sexual misconduct
Washington Times, by Alex Swoyer    Original Article

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy said Tuesday he would not launch an investigation into sexual harassment and assault allegations against President Trump, saying it’s the job of the police and prosecutors to investigate crimes. He said the alleged crimes involve state law and should be referred to the Justice Department, but acknowledged the Justice Department doesn’t have jurisdiction over violations of state law. “Allegations brought for now or in the future that, while serious, do not allege violations of specific criminal statutes, should be referred to the Judiciary Committee, which has jurisdiction over allegations related to fitness for office and non-criminal

A federal judge in Washington, D.C. has recused herself from a second case involving Trump dossier firm Fusion GPS. Tanya S. Chutkan, an Obama appointee, recused herself on Monday from a case involving a dispute over subpoenas issued for Fusion GPS, the firm that commissioned the dossier. Aleksej Gubarev, a Russian tech executive accused in the dossier of hacking Democrats’ computer systems, has sought to subpoena Fusion GPS records and to depose its employees to find out more about the research firm’s work on the dossier. (Snip) Chutkan presided over that case from Oct. 20 to Nov. 9. It was reassigned to

The chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on Monday demanded U.S nuclear regulators explain how a Russian-owned mining company was able to ship American uranium outside the country using a third-party export license. Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said new information brought to light in a series of stories published by The Hill about Uranium One’s exports to Canada, Europe and Asia conflicts with assurances he was given years ago by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) that the mining firm’s uranium would stay inside the United States. “Recent reporting by The Hill uncovered that Uranium One was able to export

Donald Trump, according to his many critics, is the single most divisive, stupid, bigoted and unpopular president in American history. To say Trump is ‘polarizing’ is to massively understate the sheer enormity of hatred that exists toward the billionaire tycoon who won the White House just over a year ago. (Snip) Yet, there’s one thing even his most vociferous enemies – and that is a historically high volume of human beings – cannot continue to deny, and it’s this: Donald Trump delivers on his promises. Of course, in the main, they’re not promises his opponents actually wanted him to keep,

Fusion GPS bills itself as a corporate research firm, but in many ways it operates with the secrecy of a spy agency. No sign marks its headquarters above a coffee shop in Northwest Washington. Its website consists of two sentences and an email address. Its client list is closely held. The small firm has been under intense public scrutiny for producing the 35-page document known as the Trump dossier. Senior executives summoned to testify before Congress in October invoked their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, and the firm is resisting a congressional subpoena for bank records that would reveal who

On Monday, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour President Donald Trump should resign over the sexual misconduct allegations against him. Gillibrand said, “President Trump should resign. These allegations are credible, they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking. And President Trump should resign his position.” She added, “Whether he will ever hold himself accountable is something you really can’t hold your breath for. And so, Congress should have hearings. They should do their investigation. They should have appropriate investigations of his behavior and hold him accountable.”
