Devin Nunes accidentally revealed his master plan to everyone

Rachel Madow, of MSNBC, obtained the recording of Nunes at a fundraiser for Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) in her home state.

"So if we actually vote to impeach, OK, what that does is that triggers the Senate then has to take it up", he said, explaining that it could take away from other priorities of Congress.

Nunes went so far as to say that "If [AG] Sessions won't unrecuse and Mueller won't clear the president, we're the only ones [who can protect Trump]".

"Are you kidding me?" the ex-CIA agent asked incredulously before launching into a tirade against Nunes for conducting such a softball investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation. We have to keep the majority. 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.

"I mean, we have to keep all these seats", Nunes added.

Everton complete triple deal for Mina, Andre Gomes and Bernard
Everton had a Deadline Day to remember after pulling off the triple capture of Bernard , Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes . Everton's season-long loan deal for Portugal's Gomes will see them pay 2.25 million euros and the player's wages.

A spokesman for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes fired back Thursday at reports playing up a "secret tape" revealing his warning to donors that a GOP majority in Congress may be necessary to protect President Trump.

Nunes told the crowd at the fundraiser that he personally had called for Rosenstein's impeachment, but that it had to be delayed in order to keep the Senate on track with the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. But, for House Republicans, you see a real, I think, conflict between their role as balancing out the executive branch - they are in charge of a separate and equal branch of government - vs. supporting a president whose policy goals they think they can help.

Nunes' remarks came days after House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis) rejected plans by the Republican conservatives, Reps. "But ultimately let's say the Portuguese came and brought her some stolen emails, and she made a decision to release those". "Well, and you have to decide what you want right now because the Senate only has so much time". Okay, now we have a problem, right? He is asked by an audience member about the effort to impeach Rosenstein, which was only publicly supported by a small group of Republicans. "Well, if that's the case, then that's criminal". 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. I mean, so, I don't think you're gonna get any argument from most of our colleagues.
