Report: Dem Rep. Conyers Paid Thousands to Settle Sexual Misconduct Complaint

Ingraham: Time for 'Dinosaurs of Washington' to Retire


Michelle Malkin appeared on "Fox & Friends" this morning to weigh in on reports that Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) settled a complaint in 2015 from a woman who alleged she was fired from his staff because she rejected his sexual advances.

Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, is now under investigation by the House Ethics Committee.

Malkin pointed out that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) just last month praised Conyers as a champion of women.

"He has impeccable integrity on all of our issues. Give John Conyers a big round of applause," Waters said in a keynote address to the Women's Convention Sojourner Truth Luncheon in Detroit.

"The fact that you have somebody like Maxine Waters out there endorsing the 'impeccable integrity' of John Conyers shows you everything that's wrong with the swamp," Malkin said.

She said that when Democrats blame Republicans for a "war on women," it is really "psychological projection."

"In other words, them projecting their own pathologies within these swamps, whether we're talking about Washington or Hollywood or academia, when they themselves are guilty of so much of this behavior and unleashing this culture of misogyny on America," Malkin said.

She added that just because Democrats like Conyers and Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) are facing sexual misconduct scandals, it doesn't mean Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore should be given a pass.

Moore has been accused of sexual misconduct, including pursuing relationships with teenage women while he was in his 30s. One accuser said she was 14 years old when Moore initiated sexual contact with her.

"Each and every one of these allegations needs to be vetted," Malkin said.
