Devin Nunes Talks About Protecting Trump on Leaked Audio

Secret recording reveals why Rosenstein hasn’t been impeached – and when he will be Secret Recording Captures Devin Nunes Talking About Trump , Rosenstein Impeachment, And Kavanaugh Confirmation

Maddow said on her show that the tape was made by a progressive organization called Fuse Washington that paid for entrance into the fundraiser, held on July 30 in Spokane, Washington. "That's why I keep - and thank you for saying it, by the way - I mean, we have to keep all these seats".

Nunes was apparently referring to the political buffer the GOP provides for Trump.

"If Sessions won't unrecuse and Mueller won't clear the president, we're the only ones, which is really the danger", Nunes (R-Calif.) said, according to the tape.

Republicans nationwide are facing headwinds going into the midterm elections, due in part to Trump's unpopularity and a steady churn of scandals surrounding the president and his administration.

Nunes also later talked about the upcoming November midterms and his concerns about keeping the Republican majority in the Senate and the House, all to keep Trump as president.

"We have to keep the majority", he adds.

"They know it's ridiculous to go after the president for obstruction of justice", Nunes said. Investigators are reportedly hoping to ask the president questions about possible obstruction of justice when Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey, who at the time was leading the Russian Federation investigation. Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from overseeing the investigation, thus putting Rosenstein in charge. They've unearthed some of his crimes, they're looking for more crimes, but you have Devin Nunes bragging about trying to stop the investigation against Putin and Russia's interference in American democracy.

Nunes can also be heard on the recording arguing that any effort to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein could interfere with the confirmation process for Brett Kavanaugh, Trump's nominee to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement.

A small group of conservatives introduced impeachment documents targeting Rosenstein last month and withdrew them less than 24 hours later.

"The Senate would have to drop everything they're doing. and start with impeachment on Rosenstein", he continued. Nunes said at a recent fundraiser that Republicans need to keep control of the House to protect President Donald Trump from the Russian Federation investigation, according to an audio recording released today. "It's a matter of, it's a matter of timing".
