Pelosi Needs to Go: Democrat Reveals Pelosi Was Aware of His Sexual Harassment Case and Did Nothing

Is it any wonder to learn that Nancy Pelosi was actually well-aware of a Democrats’ sexual predator tendencies?

It shouldn’t be by now, given the fact that Pelosi has always been as shady as lefties get.

Nevada Rep. Ruben Kihuen, a leading Democrat, was accused by his campaign finance director of being sexually explicit, patting her thighs, and forcing the staffer to resign quickly after.

Pelosi asked that Kihuen resigns, triggering Kihuen to snap back at her and reveal a secret we weren’t aware of.

“I do find it interesting that the DCCC, Leader [Nancy] Pelosi and Chairman Ben Ray Lujan — they knew about these allegations last year,” Kihuen told ABC News Tuesday.

“They looked into them. They didn’t find anything, and they continued investing millions of dollars in my campaign. They went out there and campaigned for me,” he added for reporters in front of Capitol Hill.

Pelosi gave a suitable counter-statement on Kihuen’s accuser this week, saying,  “I commend her for the courage it took to come forward.”

A spokesman for Pelosi dropped all allegations about the Democrat being in the loop this whole time.

“Sadly, this is not the case. Leader Pelosi first learned of these allegations from BuzzFeed last week,” Drew Hammill told ABC News.

Kihuen stated that Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair Ben Ray Luján, who asked for Kihuen’s resignation as well, stood by his side even though he was informed of what was happening ‘behind closed doors.’

“Congressman Kihuen’s statement is not true,” DCCC communications director, Meredith Kelly, told ABC News. “We were presented with these disturbing facts for the first time last week, and the chair immediately called for his resignation.”

In 2016, the DCCC spent roughly $3.15 million to sponsor their race, and as per sources, if a light was shed on the allegations sooner, everyone would have taken a step back to reevaluate their involvement in the campaign.

Kihuen didn’t agree with this viewpoint and explained he wasn’t considering stepping down.

“I’m not resigning,” the 37-year-old Democrat said. “I plan on continuing the job that I was elected to do by the people of the 4th congressional district.”

However, some Democrats surprised the party and actually asked for Pelosi’s resignation.

Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton wasn’t pleased with the way Pelosi reacted to sexual harassment claims against Rep. John Conyers.

Moulton stated that Pelosi “did not say the right things” and “didn’t respect the women who have brought forward these allegations” against Conyers during a “Meet the Press” interview.

“I’ve been calling for our leader to step down and allow a new generation of leaders to step up and lead our party forward for a long time. But what I don’t want to do is distract from the fact that this is a very serious issue,” the Massachusetts Democrat pointed out.

Last week, reports indicated Stefan Halper, a Cambridge professor and longtime aide to some of Washington’s most powerful figures, was outed as an FBI informant planted inside Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. The New York Post writes: Halper made his first overture when he met with Page at a British symposium. The two remained in regular contact for more than a year, meeting at Halper’s Virginia farm and in Washington, DC, as well as exchanging emails. The professor met with Trump campaign co-chair Sam Clovis in late August, offering his services as a foreign-policy adviser, The Washington Post reported Friday, without naming the academic. … Days later, Halper contacted Papadopoulos by e-mail. The professor offered the young and inexperienced campaign aide $3,000 and an all-expenses-paid trip to London, ostensibly to write a paper about energy in the eastern Mediterranean region. Here are a few fast facts about Halper’s history in politics. Got His Start in Nixon/Ford Years The Stanford and Oxford-educated Halper started his career in government in 1971 as a member of President Richard Nixon’s Domestic Policy Council. The foreign policy expert served as the Office of Management and Budget’s Assistant Director of Management and Evaluation Division between 1973-1974. Halper then served as an assistant to all three of President Gerald Ford’s Chief of Staffs — Alexander Haig, Donald Rumsfeld, and Dick Cheney — until 1977. Accused of Leading a Spy Ring Inside Jimmy Carter’s Presidential Campaign The Reagan-Bush presidential campaign hired Halper to serve as Director of Policy Coordination in 1980 and would later be embroiled in the Debategate affair, a scandal in which CIA operatives were accused of leaking the Carter campaign’s foreign policy positions to the Republican ticket. The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald reports: Four decades ago, Halper was responsible for a long-forgotten spying scandal involving the 1980 election, in which the Reagan campaign – using CIA officials managed by Halper, reportedly under the direction of former CIA Director and then-Vice-Presidential candidate George H.W. Bush – got caught running a spying operation from inside the Carter administration. The plot involved CIA operatives passing classified information about Carter’s foreign policy to Reagan campaign officials in order to ensure the Reagan campaign knew of any foreign policy decisions that Carter was considering. Halper also worked as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs during President Ronald Reagan’s first term. Had a Stint as a Bank Executive In 1984, Halper was chairman of three financial institutions — National Bank of Northern Virginia, Palmer National Bank, and George Washington National Bank. White House official Oliver North wired loaned funds from the Palmer National Bank to a Swiss bank account, which were later used to aid the contras. Believed Hillary Clinton Would Be a Better Steward for U.S.-UK Relations In March 2016, Halper told Russia’s Sputnik News that he believed then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton would prove to be a steadier hand in preserving the “special relationship” enjoyed by the United States and Britain. “I believe Clinton would be best for US-UK relations and for relations with the European Union. Clinton is well-known, deeply experienced and predictable. US-UK relations will remain steady regardless of the winner although Clinton will be less disruptive over time,” Halper said.
