Nov 21, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Today, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), second most senior Democratic Member of the House Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement regarding the allegations against Ranking Member John Conyers, Jr.:

“The allegations against Ranking Member Conyers are extremely serious and deeply troubling. Obviously, these allegations must be investigated promptly by the Ethics Committee. There can be no tolerance for behavior that subjects women to the kind of conduct alleged. We also must support efforts to reform the way the House of Representatives handles these matters to make the process easier and more supportive of victims, as well as more transparent.”
