"The House Intelligence Committee chairman has essentially leveraged his position into a potent political weapon against the FBI, the Department of Justice and the USA intelligence community, brandishing a bogus memo as proof of intelligence abuses, feeding the hungry far-right conspiracy mill, and bolstering the president's claim that Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump campaign is a witch hunt".

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]". "Which is really the danger", he said. That's why I keep, and thank you for saying it by the way.

For starters, Nunes emphasized that it's critical to keep a Republican majority in the House of Representatives.

Comments made at a private fundraiser for Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers in Spokane last week are making national headlines Thursday.

The audio was recorded by a member of the progressive group "Fuse Washington", and played on MSNBC Wednesday.

Nunes' office did not immediately return a request for comment today, but his spokesman Jack Langer told The Hill newspaper that "these are sensible ideas". He served as a member of President Trump's transition team and has been a staunch defender of the president in the Russian Federation investigation.

When Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) admitted that Republicans in Congress are waiting until after Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed by the Senate to the U.S. Supreme Court to ramp up impeachment efforts of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, he brought the obvious into focus.

Likewise, House Speaker Paul Ryan has already "booted Collins out of the House Energy and Commerce Committee".

I will fill out the remaining few months of my term to assure that our community maintains its vote in Congress to support President Trump's agenda to create jobs, eliminate regulations, reduce the size of government, address immigration and lower taxes.

The tapes offer a glimpse at Nunes political strategies in advance of the elections. "It's a matter of, it's a matter of timing".

Liverpool concluded an impressive pre-season by cruising to a 3-1 win over Torino on Tuesday. I really liked his pre-season, it was really strong and proved a lot and that was cool".

As chair of the House Intelligence Committee, Nunes has fought tooth and nail against allowing the lower chamber to conduct a full-throated Watergate-style investigation into what kind of interference occurred in the 2016 election.

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

Nunes, quite candidly admits, "It's not a matter that any of us like Rosenstein... it's a matter of timing".

"Well, and you have to decide what you want right now because the Senate only has so much time", he added. "Like sometimes you love the president's tweets, sometimes we cringe on the president's tweets".

Nunes, like every member of the House, is up for re-election in November.
