    Rep. John Conyers, newly facing sexual misconduct charges from former aides, was praised by fellow Rep. Maxine Waters just last month as a champion of women. During an address to organizers of the national Women’s March in which she lashed out at “rape culture” and President Trump, she singled out the Michigan lawmaker for special attention. “You know, there is a member of Congress who has been supportive of women for many, many, many years,” said said in a keynote address to the Women's Convention Sojourner Truth Luncheon in Detroit.“He is quiet, he is confident, he is powerful, but he...

    A leading Democratic congressman settled a wrongful dismissal complaint for more than $27,000 in taxpayer funding after he allegedly fired the staffer because she would not “succumb to [his] sexual advances,” according to a new report. The congressman, Michigan Rep. John Conyers, is described as a serial sexual harasser who would prey on his female staffers in sworn affidavits signed by four of his former staffers. BuzzFeed News first reported the bombshell allegations and accompanying settlement after right-wing blogger Mike Cernovich provided the website with the documents. One former female employee filed a complaint with the Congressional Office Of Compliance...

    Michigan Rep. John Conyers, a Democrat and the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 with a former employee who alleged she was fired because she would not “succumb to [his] sexual advances.” Documents from the complaint obtained by BuzzFeed News include four signed affidavits, three of which are notarized, from former staff members who allege that Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the powerful House Judiciary Committee, repeatedly made sexual advances to female staff that included requests for sexual favors, contacting and transporting other women with whom they believed Conyers was having affairs,...

    AmericaÂ’s urban communities need a reformation. So why do they keep electing Democrats whose progressive policies hold them hostage on the plantation of liberal ideology? Every week a prominent Democrat is in the news labeling their opposition as racist as if it is some sort of sport. Do you support school choice that helps struggling black parents endgenerational poverty? Racist. Call out black crime rates that disproportionately claim black victims? Racist. Criticize the welfare state that keeps black people hooked on government handouts? Racist. Are you a Republican? Automatic racist. And if youÂ’re a black conservative like I am, itÂ’s...

    Thomas Farr moved one step closer to being a U.S. District judge for the Eastern District of North Carolina on Thursday over protests from the Congressional Black Caucus and several progressive groups who say he has worked to defend discriminatory laws. The SenateJudiciary Committee voted down party lines, 11 to 9, to clear Mr. Farr for a confirmation vote with the full Senate. But before the committee’s vote on Thursday, the top ranking Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California voiced opposition to the North Carolina attorney, citing the Congressional Black Caucus’ letter to the committee alleging Mr. Farr has worked...

    Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson shot back at President Trump moments after he claimed he has proof that she "totally fabricated" what he told the widow of a U.S. soldier who died in Niger. "I don't know what kind of proof he could be talking about," Wilson said Wednesday on CNN. "I'm not the only person that was in the car. And I have proof too. This man is a sick man. He's cold-hearted and he feels no pity or sympathy for anyone."

    Democratic Rep. John Lewis said Thursday he sometimes feels like "taking a bullwhip" to people in order to make them care about civil rights. "It doesn’t matter whether they're black, or white, Latino, Asian-American or Native American. When you see something that’s not right, not fair, not just, you have an obligation to do something, to say something. They’re just too darn quiet. I really wanna use some other words sometimes," Lewis told the audience of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights in Washington, D.C. [Snip] Activists "just need to be radical" and "extreme" in order...

    "Here you have a president who I can tell you and guarantee you is in collusion with the Russians to undermine our democracy. Here you have a president that has obstructed justice. And here you have a president that lies every day," Waters said. The ranking Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee also said she plans to grill Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson when he comes before her committee in the coming weeks. . . "Look at Ben Carson. My God. My grandmother would call him an educated fool," Waters said.

    A secret server is behind the Capitol Police’s decision to ban a former IT aide to Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz from the House network. Now-indicted former congressional IT aide Imran Awan allegedly routed data from numerous House Democrats to a secret server. Police grew suspicious and requested a copy of the server early this year, but they were provided with an elaborate falsified image designed to hide the massive violations. The falsified image is what ultimately triggered their ban from the House network Feb. 2, according to a senior House official with direct knowledge of the investigation. The secret server was connected...

    The Congressional Black Caucus will hold a meeting next week to discuss whether to call for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Following Trump’s response to deadly violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last month, the CBC chairman, Representative Cedric Richmond of Louisiana, said the 49-member caucus would have a discussion on Trump’s possible impeachment when Congress reconvened after the August recess. Those talks will take place next Wednesday, a CBC staffer confirmed to Newsweek on Thursday. While it was initially anticipated that the discussions would happen at this week’s meeting, relief efforts following Hurricane Harvey and...

    The Congressional Black Caucus, a formidable bloc of lawmakers with a big say in the fate of President Donald Trump and his legislation, Monday sent him a terse, clear message: We don't think you understand us at all. The caucus' chairman Monday urged cancellation of next month's highly anticipated meeting between White House officials and leaders of the nation's historically black colleges. And he plans to have the 49-member caucus meet when Congress returns in two weeks to discuss whether to back Democratic-led efforts to impeach Trump. Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-La., the caucus chairman, said the president's remarks after the...

Maxine Waters was welcomed like a contemporary rock star when she entered the 2017 Black Girls Rock Awards, as the audience screamed loudly and gave her the night's rowdiest and wildest applause. [Snip] "I want you to know, if it was not for the love and respect shown to me by black women, those right-wing ultra conservatives ... they would have me believe I'm too black, I'm too confrontational, I'm too tough, and I'm too disrespectful of them," she said. "But now I know I'm simply a strong, black woman."

Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) has decided to take “the gloves off” to encourage others to see President Trump's the way she does, the House Democrat said in a New York Times profile published on Friday. “Trump was just so outrageous, so disrespectful, such a bully and dangerous for this country, I decided, ‘You know what? I’m taking the gloves off and I’m going to step out,’” Waters told the Times, explaining her bombastic rhetoric toward the president. She has called for his impeachment.

    Waters said there were questions about whether Trump and the Russian government colluded to defeat Hillary Clinton, but as she listed her accusations against various members of Trump's Cabinet, Melvin tried to cut in. "You have enough information that leads us to, I think, a credible investigation to find out whether or not there was collusion, and whether or not an oil deal is involved in all of this," Waters said. "You just started that by saying, ‘The question becomes,'" Melvin said. "Should we wait to call for impeachment until we have the answers to that question or some of...
