The internet is exploding at the sensational breaking news by Mike Cernovich about Democrat Rep. John Conyers’ repeated sexual abuse of female staffers and use of taxpayer funds for settlements related to that abuse.
Buzzfeed recognizes Mike Cernovich gave them the story, stating:
“Cernovich said he gave the documents to BuzzFeed News for vetting and further reporting, and because he said if he published them himself, Democrats and congressional leaders would “try to discredit the story by attacking the messenger.” He provided them without conditions. BuzzFeed News independently confirmed the authenticity of the documents with four people directly involved with the case, including the accuser.”
BuzzFeed’s article continues:
“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, caressing their hands sexually, and rubbing their legs and backs in public. Four people involved with the case verified the documents are authentic.”
Over on Twitter, reaction to the news of Cernovich’s involvement in the story has been swift and sometimes salty:
I don’t think we’re talking enough about the fact that the guy who might bring down John Conyers is…Mike Cernovich.
What a freaking time to be alive.

A lot going on here:
1) John Conyers settled a serious sex harassment claim and taxpayers are kept in the dark
2) Buzzfeed got the documents from Mike Cernovich. https://t.co/k7atYWZcrX

The accusations against John Conyers are sickening. But it’s almost as sickening that whoever leaked this stuff gave it to far right conspiracy loon @Cernovich first. WTF is going on in this country?
