Thursday at a news conference in Michigan outside Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) office, Conyers’ attorney Arnold Reed said Conyers was not going to be pressured to resign by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) call to do so as he is facing several allegations of sexual misconduct.
Reed said, “I would like to also address the Nancy Pelosi’s statement, which I’m sure all of you all are aware of at this juncture, calling on the congressman to resign. First of all, it is not up to Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Pelosi did not elect the congressman and she sure as hell won’t be the one to tell the congressman to leave. That decision will be completely up to the congressman.”
