UNDER THE BUS: Pelosi CAVES, Calls for Conyers' Resignation

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.01.17

Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi caved to pressure from liberal legislators and pundits on Thursday, openly calling for embattled Democratic Congressman John Conyers to resign from the House of Representatives, reports Fox News.

“I pray for Congressman Conyers, however, Congressman Conyers should resign,” Pelosi said. “He has served our Congress and shaped consequential legislation—zero tolerance means consequences for everyone—no matter the great legacy.”

An attorney for Rep. Conyers fired-back at Pelosi, saying the 88-year-old legislator who was recently hospitalized for a “stress-related illness” wasn’t going anywhere.

“Pelosi did not elect the congressman and she sure as hell will not pressure him to leave,” Conyers’ attorney Arnold Reed said. “At the end of the day, I would suspect Pelosi would have to explain the difference between Franken and Conyers.”

The House Minority Leader found herself in hot-water this week, after she told NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ she wasn’t sure if she “believed” Conyers’ accusers.

Pelosi was forced to release a statement hours later, clarifying that she did, in fact, believe the victims.
