House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and House Speaker Paul Ryan called on Representative John Conyers to resign amid allegations that he sexually harassed members of his staff.

"The allegations against Congressman Conyers, as we have learned more since Sunday, are serious, disappointing and very credible,’’ Pelosi of California told reporters Thursday. “It’s very sad. The brave women who came forward are owed justice. I pray for Congressman Conyers and his family; however, Congressman Conyers should resign.”
