Republicans Only Force Stopping Trump Impeachment, Nunes Says

Until, naturally, it leaked late Wednesday.

The conversations on Morning Joe revolved around the tapes Rachel Maddow obtained last night with audio of Nunes telling fellow Republicans "we're the only ones" who can save Trump from Robert Mueller.

Audio of Rep. Devin Nunes shows him plotting political strategy at a fundraiser - arguing a GOP majority must protect President Donald Trump, and that impeaching Deputy Attorney Rod Rosenstein would just muddy-up confirmation of Trump's Supreme Court pick.

A small group of conservatives introduced impeachment documents targeting Rosenstein last month and withdrew them less than 24 hours later. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan dismissed the idea.

"At that point, I think the chairman of the committee, Devin Nunes, made the decision that this was too risky to the president, to continue to investigate what Russian Federation did", Schiff told Castro. So if we actually vote to impeach, okay, what that does is that triggers the Senate then has to take it up.

"Do you want them to drop everything and not confirm the Supreme Court justice, the new Supreme Court justice?" he added. Either way, he said, such a power move would have to wait until after Kavanaugh is confirmed by the Senate. "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?"

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

When he arrived, Tabano reminisced about what he called the "rolling hotel" that transported the band between local shows. The episode originally aired July 30 on the History Channel as part of the series' 19th season.


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".

Nunes was the headliner at the $250-a-plate McMorris Rodgers' campaign fundraiser. He is an adamantly pro-Trump lawmaker who in February released a memorandum accusing the intelligence community of conspiring against the president.

On Saturday, the United States Congress and the Trump administration, issued stern new warning to European partners, if they do not end all business ties with the Iranian regime.

Nunes concludes by saying Republicans need to keep their majority in Congress to protect the president.

"If Sessions won't un-recuse and Mueller won't clear the president, we're the only ones, which is really the danger", he says on the recording. "We have to keep the majority".

Later, he talks about the midterms and the honest need to keep a Republican majority in both the House and Senate, something Democrats are hoping to clinch.
