Leaked audio of Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., speaking at a Republican dinner fundraiser made public Thursday evening shows the Congressman addressing why Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein hasn't been impeached and saying that Republicans could be the only force stopping President Donald Trump from being impeached.

Nunes has been a vocal supporter of Trump, and his oversight of the House Intel Committee's own Russian Federation probe was widely seen as a counter-investigation to Mueller's inquiry - largely because of Nunes' belief that some prosecutors on Mueller's team were politically biased against the president.

He continued: "Do you want them to drop everything and not confirm the Supreme Court justice, the new Supreme Court justice?"

Nunes' remarks came days after House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis) rejected plans by the Republican conservatives, Reps.

Our advice? Bring a rug, a flask of tea (or, you know, whiskey - pick your poison) and some insect repellent, and get gazing. No special equipment is needed, but if you want the best view, it helps to be as far from artificial light as possible.


Remember, while it's Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein who has the power the fire Mueller right now, Trump also has the constitutional power to direct repeal of a regulation that the attorney general alone may fire a special counsel.

"Do I support impeachment of Rosenstein?" They've unearthed some of his crimes, they're looking for more crimes, but you have Devin Nunes bragging about trying to stop the investigation against Putin and Russia's interference in American democracy. "We only have so many months left". Nunes said in response to a question from a person attending the fundraiser. "I don't think we should be cavalier with this process or term".

"The Senate would have to drop everything they're doing ... and start with impeachment on Rosenstein". If so, that's leaves roughly a month of time before elections for Nunes and Friends to renew Rosenstein impeachment efforts. "But ultimately let's say the Portuguese came and brought her some stolen emails, and she made a decision to release those". If Trump wants the House Republicans to do this dirty work for him through impeachment, as explained, that can't happen until Kavanaugh is confirmed, for the reasons Nunes gave. Okay, now we have a problem, right?

In the portion of his remarks played on MSNBC, Nunes neither compares nor contrasts this scenario with the release in 2016 of private Democratic communications.

Finally, Nunes, touted by the president as a "Great American Hero", revealed at the fundraiser that even he sometimes winces at the Trump's online communications.

REP. NUNES (R-CA): "They know it's ridiculous to go after the president for obstruction of justice".

"This is all political", Nunes said.
