(National Sentinel) The Swamp: A lawyer for Democratic Rep. John Conyers of Michigan has hinted that if his client is pushed too hard regarding multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, he may name names and take down others with him.
“We have already reached the cornered animal stage of Democrats caught up in the sexual harassment hysteria. Is there anything more amusing than watching your enemies play a game of chicken with each other, threatening mutual assured destruction?” writes Thomas Lifson at The American Thinker.
Lifson is referring to a statement issued by Arnold E. Reed, who is pushing back against the “disturbing allegations.” The bizarre statement was written in all-CAPS and referred to both Reed and Conyers in the third person, The Daily Caller noted.
“Reed acknowledged that while these allegations are serious, they are simply allegations,” the statement said. “If people were required to resign over allegations, a lot of people would be out of work in this country including many members of the House, Senate and even the president.”
Reed’s claims regarding allegations come after news that the Congressional Office Of Compliance (OOC) has quietly been paying out sexual harassment claims for years, using U.S. taxpayer dollars.
In the past decade alone, the office has paid out $17 million in claims.
Conyers himself has already admitted to settling a wrongful dismissal complaint involving a former staffer for more than $27,000 in taxpayer funds in 2015 following allegations he fired the staffer for her refusal to “succumb to [his] sexual advances.”

“Sworn affidavits signed by four of his former staffers describe Conyers as a serial sexual harasser who preyed on young, female staffers and abused taxpayer resources to pursue sexual relationships with women,” The Daily Caller‘s Peter Hansson reports.
