It keeps getting worse and worse for the allegations against Democrat John Conyers. DC attorney Melanie Sloan said Conyers met her in his underwear in his office on Capitol Hill.
While speaking with reporters on Monday, Sloan told reporters that Conyers one pulled her out of a meeting and screamed at her in the hallway for not wearing stocking. Keep in mind this was on a hot day in Washington DC.
Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi referred to Rep. John Conyers as a national icon.
DC Attorney Melanie Sloan on John Conyers:
Per Breitbart News:
A woman who used to work as the top Democratic lawyer for the House Judiciary Committee said that Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) once showed up to a meeting wearing nothing but his underwear.
The woman, Melanie Sloan, told ABC News that she “walked into his office having been called up to brief him on something and he was walking around in his underwear.”
Sloan, who served as minority counsel for the committee, said she was startled by the encounter that took place in the Rayburn House Office Building.
“I was pretty taken aback to see my boss half-dressed,” Sloan told the Washington Post. “I turned on my heel and I left.”
“There was an occasion where he called me out of a meeting with a bunch of advocates and was screaming at me in the halls, including [about] me not wearing stockings on a 95-degree Washington summer day … while he wasn’t wearing socks,” she said.
Sloan added that she felt there was nothing she could do to stop him.
“I was dismissed and told I must be mentally unstable,” she said.
Conyers’ attorney, Arnold Reed, claimed that the Michigan Democrat “has never done anything inappropriate to Melanie Sloan.”
Meanwhile Conyers has stepped aside as the Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee while this is under investigation.
After careful consideration and in light of the attention drawn by recent allegations made against me, I have notified the Democratic Leader of my request to step aside as Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee during the investigation of these matters.
