Conyers Convenes Basement Hearings. Again

Remember back in June 2005 when Rep. John Conyers (Moonbat-Mi) had a basement hearing on the Downing Steet Memo, which was supposed to "take Bush down?" Guess what? He did it again:

House Democrats, led by liberal Michigan Congressmen John Conyers, will hold unofficial hearings on the legality of President Bush’s warantless wiretap programs Friday, and CSPAN and Pacifica radio will carry the hearings live, RAW STORY can report.

Conyers office said in a release that CNN and ABC radio are also expected to be present at the event. Radio Pacifica affiliates will broadcast the forum beginning at 11:00am EST, and it will be streamed live on the internet at www.kpfa.org.

The hearings are open to the public and will be held Friday, Jan. 20 at 11:00am in room B339 at the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington.

So far, no story saying that the tinker toy hearing occured, including at either CNN or ABC. But, just for clarification, the "B" in B339 means Basement level. I wonder if they played Dungeons and Dragons afterwards.

Meanwhile, in other Conyers news

A grand jury on Tuesday indicted a former aide to U.S. Rep. John Conyers on charges of skipping his sentencing on a federal fraud conviction, U.S. Attorney Stephen Murphy said.

DeWayne Boyd, 49, formerly of Detroit, was arrested Dec. 31 in Accra, Ghana, and was expelled from the west African country the next day.

Boyd was convicted Dec. 15, 2004, of charges including mail fraud, making false declarations under oath, making false statements to investigators, bankruptcy fraud and theft of government property. He was expected to be sentenced to 30 to 46 months in prison on April 12, 2005.

How about that "culture of corruption," John?
