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

Secret recording reveals why Rosenstein hasn’t been impeached – and when he will be

Interestingly, while Nunes has lobbied for the Russian Federation investigation to end, at the fundraiser he said getting stolen emails for use in a campaign would be a crime.

On Wednesday evening, a segment on the "The Rachel Maddow Show" highlighted statements made during a private campaign fundraising event for US Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers. "We have to keep the majority".

For starters, Nunes emphasized that it's critical to keep a Republican majority in the House of Representatives.

"This puts us in such a tough spot".

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

The remarks drew immediate rebuke from Democrats.

Nunes' office did not immediately return a request for comment today, but his spokesman Jack Langer told The Hill newspaper that "these are sensible ideas".

Others observed that the lawmaker's actions over the past year made his comments unsurprising.

"Do I support impeachment of Rosenstein?" He has denied wrongdoing.

We will answer the charges filed against Congressman Collins in Court and will mount a vigorous defense to clear his good name. The duty of Congress is to be a check and balance on the Executive Branch, and to pursue the facts wherever they may lead.

"These people look like stooges", the columnist said, for having "indulged a character like Devin Nunes".

Chicago was born in January 2018 by way of surrogacy, a first for Kardashian and West. "I would recommend surrogacy for anybody". Like, Chicago just looks really long to me and doesn't flow, so I call her Chi.

Nunes and other Republicans have been crucial to helping the President in other ways as well. He added, "so it's not a matter that any of us like Rosenstein".

Likewise, House Speaker Paul Ryan has already "booted Collins out of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. My job is to make sure that this is Nunes' last term in Congress so that we can move the Central Valley forward", Janz said.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Collins said he thought the decision was in the best interest of his constituents in NY, as well as the Republican party and "President Trump's agenda".

"I don't think you're going to get any argument from most of our colleagues".

Nunes, who heads the House Intelligence Committee, seems to explain the main reason Congress hasn't taken up the issue is due to timing and the upcoming midterm elections.

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".

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

But Nunes isn't just your average congressional partisan; he's the guy who was tasked with running a fair investigation into the Russian Federation situation for the usually bipartisan House Intelligence Committee.

Nunes, like every member of the House, is up for re-election in November.

In another portion of the recording, Nunes appears to admit that if a candidate received "secret information" like "stolen emails" from a foreign government, and that candidate released them, it would be a criminal act.
