Devin Nunes accidentally revealed his master plan to everyone

Devin Nunes accidentally revealed his master plan to everyone

The event took place in Spokane on July 30th and featured remarks from California Republican Rep. Devin Nunes who is the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

Speaking on the topic of the probe, Nunes said in the recording: "If Sessions won't un-recuse and Mueller won't clear the president, we're the only ones - which is really the danger". "But if they tell a lie often enough and they put it out there and they say, 'Oh, we're looking at the tweets, ' cause you know you've got a mixed bag on the tweets, right? If we do not keep the majority, all of this goes away", he added.

In the tape obtained by MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and recorded at a closed-door Republican fundraiser, Nunes gave donors a hypothetical scenario in which a candidate is given stolen emails from a foreign power and then releases the emails themselves.

The recording was released by MSNBC, which said it received it from a person associated with Fuse Washington, a progressive group based in Seattle.

At least one lawmaker, Rep. Ted Lieu, D-El Segundo, took to Twitter to call on Nunes to resign.

Nunes, an ally of Trump's who helped on the president's transition team, recused himself from presiding over the investigation after questions arose regarding his handling of classified information.

But Nunes said that resistance to Rosenstein's impeachment was mostly about scheduling. Nunes worries that getting the ball rolling on a Rosenstein impeachment in the present would preoccupy the Senate and prevent them from tackling the most important task in front of them: confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Gautam Gambhir believes Lord’s Test can decide India’s fate in the series
Hosts England lead the five-match series after their 31-run victory in the gripping first Test at Birmingham. With rainfall forecasted for Friday, another frustrating day with a lot of interruptions is on the cards.

In response to the articles of impeachment House Speaker Paul Ryan quickly stated that he does not support impeaching Rosenstein for a "number of reasons", essentially shutting down the impeachment attempt.

"I look forward to having my good name cleared of any wrongdoing", he said.

He has been accused of running interference between the president and Democrats on the committee instead of conducting an objective investigation.

President Donald Trump and Rep. Chris Collins participate in a congressional listening session with GOP members in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on February 16, 2017 in Washington.

Nunes, quite candidly admits, "It's not a matter that any of us like Rosenstein... it's a matter of timing".

Nunes concludes by saying Republicans need to keep their majority in Congress to protect the president. He is hardly the first member of Congress to be indicted while in office, and there is precedent for representatives to be re-elected even while under indictment. But what first strikes you is how quickly he pivots from talking about Trump's fate in the Russian Federation investigation to the GOP's electoral fortunes - as if the goal of keeping Republicans in power is to shut the whole thing down.
