Supporters rally, demand due-process for US Rep. Conyers

Relative Rep. Conyers won't seek re-election due to health

The albatross that Democrats deserve

"The important thing is he'll be there", Reed said of Conyers, who has been hospitalized since the middle of last week with unknown symptoms believed to be related to stress.

The notice was leaked by a family member of Conyers who is expecting to run for the seat, the New York Times reports.

Brown settled a complaint in 2015 with Conyers over the allegations, according to her attorney, the AP reported. "If we're going to raise this unholy and unlawful guillotine, calling for the head of John Conyers, then (an effort to remove) the president of the United States" must begin, he said. Another woman accused Conyers of sexual misconduct just days later. The committee's website lists Conyers still as a member.

Ian Conyers, 29, the grandson of Rep. Conyers' brother, confirmed the news by phone with ABC News early Tuesday.

The Democrat's attorney dismissed Grubbs' accusations, telling the Detroit Free Press that they are "another instance of tomfoolery from the mouth of Harvey Weinstein's attorney".

The Associated Press left the younger Conyers a message seeking comment Tuesday.

Growth in the UK's dominant sector missed expectations in November, a closely-watched index has shown. The seasonally adjusted business activity index stood at 48.5 in November, off from 51.7 in October.

"I stand with my uncle in terms of his belief of no specific wrongdoing", Mr. Conyers said.

Just late last night, another woman who says she worked for Conyers also came forward to say the congressman groped her while they were in church.

John Conyers' attorney, Arnold Reed, has said the congressman plans to speak on a Detroit radio show Tuesday morning about his political future. But following the mounting allegations of sexual harassment, he has faced growing calls to resign from colleagues in the House, including House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.

John Conyers has stepped aside as the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee.

The House Ethics Committee announced this month that it would investigate claims of sexual harassment and age discrimination involving the congressman's staff. John Conyers, who has denied those allegations, said he would cooperate with the probe. She is also the cousin of Marion Brown who also accused the congressman of sexual misconduct, reaching a confidential settlement with the politician over the allegations.

Congress has been reviewing policies on how to handle sexual harassment complaints after a string of cases involving prominent figures in the US media, Hollywood and politics.
