Recording of Devin Nunes at private McMorris Rodgers fundraiser makes national headlines

"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. "If we do not keep the majority, all of this goes away", he added.

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

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".

In another snippet, Nunes, one of Rosenstein's most vocal critics, also pointed out the impeachment process was "a bit complicated" because the Senate would have to deal with the fallout.

"Democrats are laser focused on taking back the House, electing Nancy Pelosi Speaker and then launching impeachment proceedings against President Trump", Collins said in a statement.

"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", he said in the statement. Okay, now we have a problem, right? "Well, if that's the case, then that's criminal".
