Arnold E. Reed is the lawyer who is representing and defending Democratic Michigan Rep. John Conyers who is accused of sexually abusing his female staffers, defended his client Conyers by indicating that there are allegations against “many members” of the House and Senate.
Daily Caller reports:
Conyers’ attorney, Arnold E. Reed, released a statement defending the Michigan Democrat and pushing back against the “disturbing allegations.” The bizarre statement was written in all-CAPS and referred to both Reed and Conyers in the third person.
“Reed acknowledged that while these allegations are serious, they are simply allegations,” the statement said. “If people were required to resign over allegations, a lot of people would be out of work in this country including many members of the House, Senate and even the president.”
This could be very interesting and funny.
