Jon Favreau, a former Obama speechwriter and current host of liberal podcast “Pod Save America,” called for Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) to step down on Tuesday amid sexual harassment allegations against the longest-serving Democratic representative.

“Conyers holds office, and there needs to be a process for office holders who are accused of these things to figure out what happens next,” Favreau said.

“I can’t imagine a scenario where John Conyers should keep his seat and not resign. I can’t,” he continued.

His co-hosts, Tommy Vietor and Jon Lovett, concurred.

Favreau added that Congress needed a bipartisan investigative process to sort out the accusations.
