What Conyers' colleagues in Congress are saying
Tom Rust, the staff director and chief counsel to the House Ethics Committee, tells CNN the committee has no comment on the Conyers news and whether there might be a potential investigation into the new allegations against the congressman.
"Last month, I directed the Committee on House Administration to conduct a full review of all policies and procedures related to workplace harassment and discrimination," the Wisconsin Republican said.
"As I have said before, any credible allegation of sexual harassment must be investigated by the Ethics Committee," the California Democrat added in a statement.
Nadler, a senior Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, called the allegations "extremely seriously and deeply troubling."
Lofgren, a senior Democrat on the judiciary panel and a former chair of the House's Ethics Committee, called the allegations "as serious as they get."
