1. Nov 30, 2017 3:34 PM EST White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders only addressed calls for Conyers to resign as a "decision for John Conyers to make."
  2. Nov 30, 2017 3:24 PM EST More Congress members are calling for Rep. John Conyers to step down, according to CNN. Democratic Congressman Jim Clyburn, the highest ranking African-American Democrat in Congress and Rep. Dan Kildee, another Democrat, have called for Conyers to resign. Kildee is the first member of congress from Conyers' home state of Michigan to do so.

    “We just simply can not — in Congress or on a factory floor in my home state of Michigan — tolerate the kind of abuse of power that comes with men using their position to harass women," Kildee said.
  3. Nov 30, 2017 2:02 PM EST Congressman Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, said he agreed with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California that Conyers should step down, as well as Sen. Al Franken, who has been accused of sexual misconduct.
  4. Nov 30, 2017 12:26 PM EST: Rep. John Conyers's attorney said Thursday that the Michigan congressman will not be stepping down, despite growing calls from his colleagues for Conyers's resignation.

    Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California, said in separate news conferences Thursday that Conyers should resign.

    "They're not going to determine whether congressman Conyers resigns," attorney Arnold Reed said at a news conference. "He's not thinking about that. He's thinking about his health -- he's thinking about getting well."

    He questioned why Conyers's former staffer, Marion Brown, violated her confidentiality agreement to speak on NBC’s the “Today” show Thursday.

    “It was very uncomfortable and very unprofessional," she said. “It was sexual harassment -- violating my body, propositioning me, inviting me to hotels with the guise of discussing business and propositioning for sex.'

    "She's jumping on the bandwagon now," Reed said.
  5. Original report: "I just spoke with (Conyers’s wife) Monica Conyers on the phone, and we want you to know that the congressman is resting comfortably,” Riddle said, according to WDIV. “He's doing OK -- as well as he can be expected for a gentleman that's approaching 90 years of age.

    "The congressman's health is not what it should be, and lot of that is directly attributable to this media assault."

    Lawmakers have called for Conyers’s resignation in the wake of reports that the Michigan Democrat sexually harassed multiple women on his staff.

    A former Conyers staffer, Marion Brown, told NBC’s the “Today” show on Thursday that the lawmaker “violated my body, he's touched me in different ways.”

    “It was very uncomfortable and very unprofessional," she said. “It was sexual harassment -- violating my body, propositioning me, inviting me to hotels with the guise of discussing business and propositioning for sex.'
  6. BuzzFeed News reported last week that Conyers’ office paid a $27,000 settlement in 2015 to a woman who claimed she was fired from the lawmaker’s office because she refused his sexual advances.

    Brown’s lawyer, Lisa Bloom, confirmed to The Associated Press after the NBC interview aired that Brown was that former employee. She said Brown worked for Conyers in a variety of capacities from 2003 until 2014, mostly in the Detroit district office.

    BuzzFeed News also published affidavits from former staff members who said they had witnessed Conyers touching female staffers inappropriately or requesting sexual favors.

    A former scheduler filed a complaint earlier this year, but later dropped it. And a third ex-staffer, Deanna Maher, said Tuesday that in 1997 Conyers undressed to his underwear in front of her and twice touched her leg inappropriately.
    Conyers has denied any wrongdoing.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California, on Thursday joined the growing ranks of lawmakers calling for Conyers’s resignation, four days after she called him an “icon” of the Democratic Party. Conyers, who was first elected in 1964, is currently the longest-serving member of Congress, with 52 years of service.

    "The allegations against Congressman Conyers, as we have learned more since Sunday, are serious, disappointing and very credible," Pelosi said at her regular weekly news conference. "It's very sad. The brave women who have come forward are owed justice. I pray for Congressman Conyers and his family, and wish them well; however, Congressman Conyers should resign."
  7. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, said Thursday that Conyers should resign immediately.
  8. Conyers’ lawyer, Detroit-area attorney Arnold Reed, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that his client has no plans to resign, in spite of the allegations. The House Ethics Committee is investigating the allegations.

    "He's going to fight these allegations tooth and nail if he has to with evidence, with documentation, witnesses, whatever he has to do," Reed said. "And the accusers will have to prove up their case."
