A recording of a fundraising event with Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) reveals why Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein hasn’t yet been impeached despite so many Republicans calling for the action – and what they’re waiting for.

Here’s what the recording said

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.

“So if we actually vote to impeach, OK, what that does is that triggers the Senate then has to take it up,” Nunes explained to a questioner on the recording.

“Well, and you have to decide what you want right now because the Senate only has so much time,” he added.

The recording was captured by an operative who paid for entry to the fundraiser for Republican Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers in Spokane, Washington.

“Sometimes we cringe”

In another portion of the tape Nunes said that the special counsel’s investigation was politically motivated, but admitted that some of the president’s tweets made him “cringe.”

“They know it’s ridiculous to go after the president for obstruction of justice,” Nunes said. “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? Like sometimes you love the president’s tweets, sometimes we cringe on the president’s tweets.”

“But they’re trying to make a political,” he added, “this is all political as to why that story ran in the New York Times on the tweets.”

In another portion of the recording, Nunes appears to admit that if a candidate received “secret information” like “stolen emails” from a foreign government, and that candidate released them, it would be a criminal act.

“If we do not keep the majority, all of this goes away.”

In another portion, Nunes explains why keeping a majority in the House of Representatives is so important.

“If Sessions won’t unrecuse and Mueller won’t clear the president, we’re the only ones,” Nunes says. “Which is really the danger… we have to keep all these seats.”

“We have to keep the majority,” he adds. “If we do not keep the majority, all of this goes away.”

The audio was recorded by a member of the progressive group “Fuse Washington,” and played on MSNBC Wednesday. They paid $250 for their entry.

      It’s called Politics! That’s why the founding fathers never foresaw a career in politics. They foresaw people coming to the nations capital to serve for a limited amount of time representing the interests of their constituents. Career politicians are a large part of the problem and Trump has called for term limits. Democrats and their vile hatred, resistance and obstruction is what creating the most damage to the country. If Republicans, independents and Trump Democrats come out on Election Day and vote in the numbers that came out on the Presidential election, We’ll have the 60 plus seats in the Senate and maintain the GOP control of the House. Trumps agenda will be implemented and Term Limits an amendment to the constitution. If you truly want to see justice prevail (and I’m as frustrated as you with the stalemate in Congress) and the USA prosper like never before, Give Trump the tools he needs to fully implement his agenda! MAGA!

        Politics is also the reason the founders made only the house an elected body, with the Senators, selected by individual states through either local elections, appointment by the state legislature or by the governors as the means od retaining a voice in the government regardless of the size of the state. End the 17th amendment and return poser to the states. Soon the money trill will diminish.

        The women in this country hold all the cards. How they vote will determine the destiny of this country. It’s really that simple, and who courts them best will determine who wins the midterm election.

      If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place. CLAPPER’S OWN CONFESSION

    Don’t have time, Thats a laugh. They waste so much time arguing over petty pork barrel items instead. Why discuss the love life of crickets let alone even allocating hundreds of thousands to study them. This country has much more pressing needs. But you find time for idiotic things like this. STOP with the excuses take action on real bills that impact life in these present United States.

    Be sure to thank “Fuse Washington” and MSNBC for their donation to the Republican party as well as helping to expose themselves in the process. :o)

      Indeed we do need Kavanaugh. I don’t know why what Nunes says is so hard to understand. It makes perfect sense considering the Democrats in the Senate who don’t make any rational sense.

    If the Republicans lose control of Congress, then all the Democrat criminal behavior will be covered up again, like it always is. The corruption is so rampant in DC, and there are so many RINOs, that it will take strong actions and prosecutions to clear it out. There’s little hope that will happen. Politicians are “owned” by those who fund their campaigns, and the citizens are the losers. Soros has poured multi $billions into the Democrat Party, and also to a few ‘Republicans’ (aka RINOs). It’s now been exposed how the Clintons and their Democrat accomplices PAID for the fake Steele dossier that was used to scam the FISA courts and tried to throw the 2016 presidential election. If the Republicans lose the majority, that will continue to be covered up, even though it’s now out in the open. Our only hope is for the Republicans to continue the investigations into the corruption.

    Are taxes will go down by 75% IF the government was run like a BUSINESS and all the silly crap could then be dealt with by all the loser politicians.

    It appears to me that with all the corrupted politicians whom were exposed in the past two years that nothing is being done about their corruption. As far as Hillary, Comey, Lynch, Rice, Obama, I think the government is postponing arresting them until the clock runs out on their statute of limitations for prosecuting. If indeed there is such a thing. So fed up with the wealthy and powerful NOT being held accountable.

    Sadly, there are very few honest and honorable politicians in Washington. The reason no one is prosecuted is because nearly everyone has dirt that could ruin each other and so they cover each other. The bureaucracy that is our federal government was never the intention of our Founding Father’s and is not authorized by our Constitution. It began to bloat when the Progressives took office and started the federal tax and began writing laws to cover every iota of your day they could get away with. Congress spends trillions of dollars on minuscule nonsense every year. Don’t look at the big bills, look at the minutiae that gets stuck in all bills! Grant money for research on outrageous things like plants and animals and so forth. All of this “extra” money is appropriated because Congress owes someone or some group for their financial and political support and its payback. Limited federal government means the government only exists to preserve the nation as a whole through national defense and security. It will never go back in the box now that the monster of a federal government has been set loose and fed for a hundred years. The least a citizen can do is inform themselves of exactly where and how it all went wrong and stop electing people who are part of the problem. That’s why PDJT was elected.

    I agree with him they need to confirm first then impeach. Priority over which is more important at the moment. I think both are important but confirming supreme court should be done first.
