House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes recently spoke at a fundraiser for a Republican colleague.
Nunes laid out what is at stake in the election in terms of finding the real truth about how the Obama administration spied on Donald Trump.
But when MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow leaked a secret audio of Nunes’ remarks no one could believe what he said.
According to Nunes, the stakes of the election could not be clearer.
If the Democrats win control of Congress then the Deep State cover up about the Obama administration and the FBI will continue.
Democrats will wield the subpoena power and they will sweep the scandal under the rug.
Republicans’ bulwark around President Donald Trump could be imperiled this fall if Democrats are able to seize control of the House of Representatives in the midterms, Rep. Devin Nunes appeared to warn in a secretly recorded audio tape.
“It’s like your classic catch-22 situation … This puts us in such a tough spot. 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. “I mean, we have to keep all these seats. We have to keep the majority. If we do not keep the majority, all of this goes away.”
The recording was obtained and aired by “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC on Wednesday night. Nunes allegedly made the comments, which touch on Attorney General Jeff Sessions and special counsel Robert Mueller, at a private fundraiser last month for Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.).
Democrats would also intensify the Russia investigation for two reasons.
First, they would want to bog down the Trump administration in an endless investigation and piles of document requests.
That would mean staff time that could be used to implement the President’s agenda would now be occupied with responding to nuisance requests by a new Democrat majority.
Secondly, Democrats are looking for any excuse to launch impeachment proceedings against the President.
