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

"If Sessions won't unrecuse and Mueller won't clear the president, we're the only ones, which is really the danger", Nunes (R-Calif.) said, according to the tape.

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

Jack Langer, a spokesman for Nunes, downplayed the comments in a statement to CNN, saying "it's unsurprising to see the left-wing media spin Chairman Nunes' routine observations as some nefarious plot, since these same media outlets spent the a year ago and a half touting non-existent Russian Federation collusion conspiracy".

A secret recording of a conversation during a Spokane fundraiser for Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers is making national headlines because of comments Rep. Devin Nunes made about the federal attorney overseeing the probe into Russian election meddling, The Spokesman Review reports. "We have to keep the majority". 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.

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.

Devin Nunes, R-Calif., spoke, in October 2017, on Capitol Hill in Washington.

"The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee is supposed to be an impartial investigator who follows the facts wherever they may lead", said cybersecurity reporter Eric Geller on Twitter in response to the recording. Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., responded by saying he opposed the effort and reaffirmed his belief that Justice Department officials were acting appropriately.

"Like sometimes you love the president's tweets, sometimes we cringe on the president's tweets", he said, attempting to discredit Mueller's purported examination of Trump's inflammatory posts as part of his inquiry into possible obstruction of justice.

"The Senate would have to drop everything they're doing. and start with impeachment on Rosenstein", he continued. "I don't think we should be cavalier with this process or term".

"It's a matter of timing", Nunes said. "The question is the timing of it right before the election", Nunes added. "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?"
