Gutfeld: Pelosi Used the 'Icon Clause' to Defend John Conyers

Mark Steyn reacted to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) defending Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) as an "icon" after he was accused of sexual misconduct.

Conyers stepped down from his plum post at the Judiciary Committee but remains in the office he has held for 52 years.

Carlson said Conyers being an "icon" for legislation and for women's rights is a "non-sequitur."

"[Pelosi] just gave a textbook illustration of how vulnerable women in low level jobs are cowed into not coming forward," Steyn said. "He's a somebody, she's (the accuser) a nobody."

Steyn said Pelosi is "essentially making the same argument as [Harvey] Weinstein... [Conyers] was very important in passing the Violence Against Women Act."

He said that, like Weinstein and journalist Charlie Rose, Conyers "used the cover of liberal progressive feminism, because that's where the girls are."
