Rep. John Conyers Accused of Groping Former Staffer

What happened?

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), the longest-serving member in the House of Representatives, is still in the hot seat and under fire from another alleged victim. He agreed to step down as the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee after a BuzzFeed report revealed that he had settled with a former employee who said he propositioned her and then fired her when she refused his advances.

What’s the latest news?

Former staffer Deanna Maher, 77, said Conyers touched her inappropriately in at least three different incidents while she served as his deputy chief of staff from 1997 to 2005. She said she decided to come forward as part of the ethics investigation into Conyers’ behavior.

“There are so many victims that passed through Conyers, and he was so cruel,” Maher said in a statement reported by ABC News. “Everyone knew what was going on, but no one did anything.”

So many allegations …

Are you as overwhelmed as we are? On today’s show, Pat and Stu talked about Conyers and the flood of sexual harassment allegations against powerful figures that started with Harvey Weinstein. It’s difficult to keep up at this point.

“Strange stuff,” Pat said of Conyers. “He’s 88 years old!”

GLENN: Another day, another 335 people accused of sexual harassment. Might be on the low side. I'm just kind of guestimating.

STU: Well, it was 335 when you.

PAT: Obviously Matt Lauer fired today from The Today Show of sexual assault of some sort. Apparently, this stems from an incident in Rio when they were covering the Olympics. It's just coming to light now. Also, John Conyers has more accusers. And Cokie Roberts, who she is a reporter, she says it's pretty much common knowledge among reporters that he does this, that he's just a sexual -- a serial sexual harasser. Fascinating.

And another staffer -- another female staffer of his said, yeah, pretty much everyone has seen him in his underwear. The guy always strips down to his underwear. Invites women in. Walks around the office.

Strange stuff. He's 88 years old.

STU: Yeah. I don't even want to think about him having like underwear.

PAT: No.

STU: I think -- I would rather think of --

PAT: You don't want John Conyers and underwear in the same sentence.

STU: Just think of him fully clothed if you're going to think of him at all.

PAT: So, wow, that snowball continues to roll down the hill and gathers steam. Who knows where that will end?

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
