Secret recording highlights Nunes' concern with protecting Trump in Russian Federation probe

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

"I mean, we have to keep all these seats", Nunes said in the recording, obtained by the progressive group Fuse Washington and first aired on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show" Wednesday night.

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

Nunes was "caught" on tape stating the obvious: that Republicans needed to retain their majority in the U.S. House of Representatives to protect President Donald Trump from impeachment.

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): "They know it's ridiculous to go after the president for obstruction of justice".

Nunes was speaking at a gathering in support of the No. 4 House Republican, Cathy McMorris Rogers, on July 30. -Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) In the series of recordings, as Maddow lays out in detail, Nunes also admits that a US politician running for office who accepts and then releases, "let's say", the stolen emails from a foreign entity, that would be "criminal" activity.

The California Republican, a Trump ally who worked on his transition team, has been highly critical of the FBI investigation into the president and claims it was launched by biased agents out to get Trump.

Rosenstein, who has overseen the special counsel investigation after Sessions recused himself from the probe, has faced harsh criticism from House conservatives who have accused the Justice Department of withholding key information from Congress and stonewalling congressional subpoenas. "I'm glad Chairman Nunes talked about them".

"Well, and you have to decide what you want right now because the Senate only has so much time", he added.

REP. NUNES (R-CA): "Yeah, well, so it's a bit complicated, right?"

A recording of a fundraising event with Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) reveals why Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein hasn't yet been impeached despite so many Republicans calling for the action - and what they're waiting for.

"So if we actually vote to impeach, OK, what that does is that triggers? the Senate then has to take it up", Nunes can be heard saying in the audio. "It's a matter of, it's a matter of timing".
