The Democratic congressman John Conyers stepped down as ranking Democrat on the House judiciary committee on Sunday, amid allegations he used taxpayers’ money to settle cases with women who accused him of sexual misconduct.



The news came shortly after the House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, was widely criticised for calling the 88-year-old an “icon” because of his work in the civil rights movement.

“John Conyers is an icon in our country,” she said. “He has done a great deal to protect women.”

Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press, Pelosi stopped short of calling for Conyers’ resignation from Congress. The Michigan representative, she said, would “do the right thing”.

Conyers, who denies the allegations, said in a statement he wanted to stay on the committee but did not want to undermine his colleagues as he faces an ethics investigation.
