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?

Dollar Decimation: How Biden’s Spending Spree Will End Our Currency

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.

Watch the full episode below:

WATCH: Glenn on Tucker: After Chauvin Verdict we CAN come together

Emotions are high and regardless of how you interpret what happened that day between Derek Chauvin and George Floyd, the wounds are deep. Politics swooped in and took an event that horrified everyone and turned it into a team sport, only deepening the divide.

Glenn joined Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night to discuss a less political way forward.

Lawyer: I’d vote NOT GUILTY for Derek Chauvin in George Floyd trial & here’s why

Former police officer Derek Chauvin is facing several charges for his treatment of George Floyd. But attorney Andrew Branca explains WHAT must be proven in order for those charges to stand. Did Chauvin act reasonably, in the context of the entire situation? Were his actions directly responsible for Floyd's passing, or could it be blamed on factors beyond Chauvin's control? Branca also explains how the prosecutor committed misconduct serious enough for a potential appeal, how political tension makes it 'impossible' for a fair trial, why he would vote not guilty, and what sentence Chauvin is facing if the actual jury disagrees...

Dangerous Tech Oligarchs Who Answer to No One | Glenn Greenwald | Ep 104

Have you noticed how the people who call everyone a conspiracy theorist are the biggest conspiracy theorists of all? Like the Russia Collusion conspiracy theory that the Washington elite used to discredit Trump and force him out of Washington, D.C. Or how the CIA is the real power center of American politics. Glenn Greenwald, Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist and author of the new book, "Securing Democracy: My Fight for Press Freedom and Justice in Bolsonaro's Brazil," is an outsider in the media because he calls out these abuses of power. For one, he agrees that the Deep State is real.

Greenwald is a rare breed these days: He does actual journalism. He explains things very well, like his description of Trump's appeal and Obama's mystique. He and Glenn cover so many topics: Woke corporations, Julian Assange, the #MeToo movement, Putin, Snowden, The Constitution, Big Tech censorship. Why does the Left call Greenwald right-wing but the Right calls him left-wing? For a journalist, that used to be a badge of honor. But as Greenwald points out, the journalism industry has become a Woke priesthood. So, if you want to learn about actual journalism, listen to this episode. It's totally worth getting through a couple of technical difficulties.
