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

"Sessions won't unrecuse and Mueller won't clear the president, we're the only ones", Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said at a private fund-raiser on July 30, NBC News reported on Wednesday.

In other words, he believes the president will be in real danger if Republicans lose control of Congress next year, which would mean Nunes would lose control of the House Intelligence Committee that he chairs.

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. The Washington Post interprets the comments as an apparent shift "from criticizing the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election to strategizing about how to blunt its impact should it imperil President Trump".

Nunes said, "It's a bit complicated" because "we only have so many months left, right?" The group also released a recording of comments the congresswoman made introducing Nunes to the crowd, in which she took swipes at her Democratic opponent for Eastern Washington's seat in Congress, Lisa Brown, and praised Trump's record on job creation.

Ted Lieu tweeted "Under our Constitution, the duty of Congress is not to clear the President. If we do not keep the majority, all of this goes away", Nunes said.

He continued: "Do you want them to drop everything and not confirm the Supreme Court justice, the new Supreme Court justice?" "But ultimately let's say the Portuguese came and brought her some stolen emails, and she chose to release those".

We have seen this also with Speaker Ryan, who has said he will not put issues on the floor that the president will not sign. Okay, now we have a problem, right?

"I've said publicly Rosenstein deserves to be impeached". So if we actually vote to impeach, okay, what that does is that triggers the Senate then has to take it up. "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 don't think we should be cavalier with this process or term". "It's a matter of, it's a matter of timing". Either way, he said, such a power move would have to wait until after Kavanaugh is confirmed by the Senate.
