Clyburn is now denying he said this.
Via Daily Caller:
Congressman John Conyers is in hot water.
Bombshell reports broke this month, detailing Conyers’ alleged verbal, sexual and physical abuse of female staff during his tenure as congressman. Five women have come forward to make allegations of sexual misconduct against Conyers, and the congressman has made financial settlements with at least one of the accusers over his inappropriate behavior.
Nancy Pelosi and Paul Ryan have called for Conyers resignation, but Thursday morning at the House Democratic caucus meeting, Congressman James Clyburn, made a dubious defense of his embattled colleague.
According New York Times writer Robert Draper, Clyburn noted that child murderer Susan Smith initially blamed a black man for abducting the children she was murdering. Clyburn went on to note that it’s “all white women who’ve made these charges against Conyers.”
