Nunes Explains Why Rosenstein Has Not Been Impeached In Leaked Audio

It is clear that he intends to undermine the investigation because he lists keeping control of the House as an alternative to Attorney General Jeff Sessions - who is recused from the investigation and all related matters on the advice of ethics experts - taking control of the probe or to Mueller finding the president to be innocent. "Which is really the danger... we have to keep all these seats".

Devin Nunes, the House Intelligence Committee chairman and one of President Donald Trump's most vocal supporters in Congress, is anxious about the Republican Party's prospects in the November midterm elections. The Washington Post interprets the comments as an apparent shift "from criticizing the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election to strategizing about how to blunt its impact should it imperil President Trump".

Nunes concludes by saying Republicans need to keep their majority in Congress to protect the president.

The House chosing to refrain from impeaching Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein could have more to do with the Supreme Court than anything else.

A spokesman for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes fired back Thursday at reports playing up a "secret tape" revealing his warning to donors that a GOP majority in Congress may be necessary to protect President Trump.

But Nunes said that resistance to Rosenstein's impeachment was mostly about scheduling. "If we do not keep the majority, all of this goes away".


"Well, and you have to decide what you want right now because the Senate only has so much time", he added.

Nunes said he thinks Rosenstein "deserves to be impeached", but noted that "the Senate would have to drop everything they're doing and start to, and start with impeachment on Rosenstein".

The California 22nd Congressional District congressman was apparently pitching himself and the Republican Party at large as a buffer for Trump, who, among several members of his election campaign, is a subject in the special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation. "It's a matter of, it's a matter of timing". "But ultimately let's say the Portuguese came and brought her some stolen emails, and she made a decision to release those".

The series of recordings made public by Maddow do not include every question to which Nunes was responding. Okay, now we have a problem, right?

Fuse, an organizing group that has protested the policies of Trump as well as McMorris Rodgers said they paid the $250 to the campaign that was needed to get in the door of the event. "Well, if that's the case, then that's criminal".
