What Did John Conyers Know & When?: Far-Left Congressman Illegally Intervened for Wife’s Secret Business Interest

By Debbie Schlussel
Last week, I told you about the guilty plea of Monica Conyers–now ex-Detroit City Councilwoman and wife of far-left Democrat Congressman John Conyers. In Federal Court, Conyers pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bribery, and yesterday, she resigned from the Detroit City Council.
But in the last couple of days, details are coming out regarding many deals in which she secretly had a hand. And at least one of those deals involves her husband, Congressman Conyers. Conyers sent a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on behalf of a company owned by a man from whom she furtively obtained $10,000 cash for no work. Previously, Conyers had opposed the same project when a different company wanted the contract. But suddenly, he did a 180.


John & Monica Conyers
Now Conyers’ staff claims he didn’t know of his wife’s secret cash receipt from the man involved. But if he didn’t know, then why did he suddenly change his position on the matter and write a letter supporting it to the EPA?
I think he knew far more than he admits. It’s against the rules governing U.S. Congressmen for them to get involved in matters in which they or a close relative have an interest.
So, what did John Conyers know, and when did he know it? And why did he do a 180 on the matter, once his wife got a little cha-ching action for her secret involvement in it?
I’m sure we’ll be hearing far more in the days ahead. But for now, it’s important to note that for a guy who claims he’s so in the know, his sudden “I didn’t know” isn’t very credible.

People like this come to mind when I think of “urban blight.”
The only difference between Detroit and Chicago is the spelling.

Well Hallelujah! Finally someone has the cajones to start asking some real questions of Mr. Justice—CONyers himself–HEAD OF THE (FREAKING) House Judiciary Committee!

Time for some judiciary justice, I’d say. This SOB has gotten away with playing the moralizing judge for way too long–and what a reeking fraud he is.
Everyone knew about his using his paid staff to campaign for John Kerry on the government payroll, to babysit and do other things forbidden by the law–but for some reason (hmmm could it be his ethnicity and/or party affiliation?) he was given a freep pass. His galavants to places aroung the globe on the taxpayer junket jet set records–but no one dares to address it.
CONyers is a CON.

Johnny’s still baby-sitting!
Remember back in December 2006 when John Conyers “accepted responsibility” for violating a whole litany of House rules? I do.
Johnny will probably skate on this too.
Keep in mind, that when it comes to all those in the Democrat Party like Dearborn Democrat Isaac Robinson, chair of the 14th District Political Organizing Committee… as with most Dimocrats… It’s. Never. About. Race. Especially when it comes to rules and laws…
Now, we’ll just wait and see how quickly all Jonny’s problems again go *poof* gone.

Welcome to the Jungle…err the Banana Republic of the Obama States of America.

Californiascreaming, excuse me if I’m wrong, but what does Obama have to do with this? I believe a quick examination of world and American history will reveal that crooked politicians and spouses existed long before Obama got in office. And Conyers and his crew have been shaky for years…

Did Conyers not also drop the ACORN probe of financial ties to the Obama campaign on the same day as his wife’s plea bargain?

Jibber Jabber:
What does Obama have to do with this?
Specific to Conyers: little or nothing.
It terms of an unprecidented level of fanfare and adulation of the MSM of all things Democrat: LOT’S
Since coming onto the scene Dems, Libs, Progressive, and extreme lefties can DO NO WRONG.
It’s either no big deal or
