Devin Nunes Talks About Protecting Trump on Leaked Audio

He called this a "classic Catch-22 situation", appearing to confuse a "tough spot" - also his words - with a situation in which contradictory conditions make escape impossible.

"Do you want them to drop everything and not confirm the Supreme Court justice, the new Supreme Court justice?"

Jack Langer, a spokesman for Nunes, downplayed the comments in a statement to CNN, saying "it's unsurprising to see the left-wing media spin Chairman Nunes' routine observations as some nefarious plot, since these same media outlets spent the previous year and a half touting non-existent Russian Federation collusion conspiracy". We have to keep the majority.

Newly released audio from a Republican fundraiser features Nunes talking to donors at a gathering in Spokane, Washington, last week, during which Nunes said that "if we do not keep the majority, all of this goes away".

REP. NUNES (R-CA): "The Senate would have to start, the Senate would have to drop everything they're doing and start to, and start with impeachment on Rosenstein".

In another portion, Nunes explains why keeping a majority in the House of Representatives is so important.

Devin Nunes, R-Calif., spoke, in October 2017, on Capitol Hill in Washington.

It seems Nunes is anxious about whether Republicans would be able to make up the majority in the upcoming November elections and the fact that the GOP is the only thing stopping the removal of Donald Trump as president.

Nunes, who has been among the most vocal critics of Rosenstein and the Department of Justice (DOJ), reasoned to supporters that the impeachment process was "a bit complicated" because the Senate would have to deal with much of the fallout.

Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), members of the House Freedom Caucus, introduced a resolution last month to impeach Rosenstein. "It's a matter of, it's a matter of timing", he added.

"If Sessions won't un-recuse and Mueller won't clear the president, we're the only ones, which is really the danger", he said on the recording.

Gen. Jeff Sessions and Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel heading the investigation into Russian efforts to sway the 2016 election and possible coordination with the Trump campaign. But it's a fair question right now.

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. Either way, he said, such a power move would have to wait until after Kavanaugh is confirmed by the Senate.
