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

Nunes discussed the idea of impeaching Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who is overseeing the Russia Investigation during the fundraiser.

Collins, the first member of Congress to endorse President Trump's 2016 campaign, has pleaded not guilty and initially pledged to fight the charges while continuing his reelection campaign in one of the most Republican-leaning districts in NY, which includes the outskirts of Rochester, Niagara Falls and Buffalo along Lake Ontario.

Nunes also noted that while he supports impeaching Rosenstein, he knows it would be unpopular, and can't do that until after the election: "I've said publicly Rosenstein deserves to be impeached... the question is the timing of it right before the election".

In comments captured in an audio recording aired Wednesday by "The Rachel Maddow Show", Nunes laid out in stark terms the rationale for preserving the GOP majority in Congress.

"If we do not keep the majority, all of this goes away".

"We have to keep all those seats". The congresswoman's office is looking into who made the recording, which took place during a fundraiser at the downtown Spokane Club on July 30.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), no stranger to recent political gaffes, a has a secret master plan to save President Donald Trump from the nefarious forces lurking in the nether reaches of government.

Jack Langer, a spokesman for Nunes, downplayed the comments in a statement to CNN, saying "it's unsurprising to see the left-wing media spin Chairman Nunes' routine observations as some nefarious plot, since these same media outlets spent the a year ago and a half touting non-existent Russian Federation collusion conspiracy".

"The Senate's got this right", Mudd concluded. "That means it would derail or largely delay a big part of our agenda ... and it would clearly dramatically delay the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to go to the Supreme Court", he said. They said, "McMorris Rodgers sounds like she's reinforcing what Nunes is saying".

"The Senate would have to drop everything they're doing ... and start with impeachment on Rosenstein".

AUDIENCE MEMBER: "But also, on things that came up in the House on Rosenstein impeachment thing".

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