Recording of Devin Nunes at private McMorris Rodgers fundraiser makes national headlines

Recording of Devin Nunes at private McMorris Rodgers fundraiser makes national headlines

Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., responded by saying he opposed the effort and reaffirmed his belief that Justice Department officials were acting appropriately.

And to implement it, this world-class congressional operator has kept it far from the view of the public. A spokesman for Nunes didn't return a request for comment sent late Wednesday by The Washington Post.

"Do I support impeachment of Rosenstein?"

The audio was recorded by a member of the progressive group "Fuse Washington", and played on MSNBC Wednesday. Nunes has stated publicly that he'd like to impeach the deputy attorney general in charge of the investigation, Rod Rosenstein.

Nunes, along with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), introduced articles of impeachment against Rosenstein last week. "Devin Nunes should resign for perverting the oath he took".

"So if we actually vote to impeach, OK, what that does is that triggers the Senate then has to take it up", he said.

"You have to decide what you want right now because the Senate only has so much time". Either way, he said, such a power move would have to wait until after Kavanaugh is confirmed by the Senate. Since Jeff Sessions is recused on the matter of the Russian Federation probe, the responsibility of deciding whether or not to fire Mueller, if Trump were to ask for this, falls to Rosenstein.

"It's a matter of timing", Nunes said.

Police say Jones drove away from the scene, and Szabo was transported to a hospital, where on Tuesday he died from his injuries. Jones and his family, their deepest condolences go out to the Szabo family".

On the tape, Nunes, R-Calif., suggests congressional Republicans must prevail in the midterms to protect Trump from the consequences of the Russian Federation meddling probe. He is an adamantly pro-Trump lawmaker who in February released a memorandum accusing the intelligence community of conspiring against the president.

The authors of the Constitution did not want their battle against King George III and his royalist cabal to end in the creation of an American kingdom-with all the intrigues, and all the corruptions of empire, that had so recently been dispatched.

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

The California Republican, speaking at a closed-door event for Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Calif., last Monday, said "if [Attorney General Jeff] Sessions won't unrecuse and [special counsel Robert] Mueller won't clear the president, we're the only ones".

In the recording Devin Nunes, a Republican Congressman and chair of the House Intelligence Committee, admitted that: "We have to keep the majority".

Later, he talks about the midterms and the honest need to keep a Republican majority in both the House and Senate, something Democrats are hoping to clinch.

So there you have it. Get a judge, win the midterms, then fire Rosenstein for investigating something he considers a crime.
