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.).

Nunes discussed the idea of impeaching Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who is overseeing the Russia Investigation during the fundraiser.

In the wake of leaked audio of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) admitting that the House has to keep its Republican majority to block Donald Trump's impeachment, CNN counterintelligence analyst Phil Mudd exploded with criticism of the California Republican.

Fuse Washington shared with KREM 2, 43 minutes of audio recording with Rachel Maddow on MSNBC exclusively.

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.

"We have to keep all those seats". -Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) In the series of recordings, as Maddow lays out in detail, Nunes also admits that a US politician running for office who accepts and then releases, "let's say", the stolen emails from a foreign entity, that would be "criminal" activity.

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

It has also been reported that the intensity of the flow of water into the dam has also reduced on Saturday morning. As many as 24 reservoirs across the state have been opened because of the heavy downpours and rising water levels.

Nunes concludes by saying Republicans need to keep their majority in Congress to protect the president. In it, Nunes discusses how House Republicans still want to impeach Rosenstein-despite assurances from the leadership that that wasn't a priority- but are only waiting to do so until after the Senate confirms Trump's Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh.

"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.

Just days before Nunes' closed-door remarks in Washington state, a group of conservative lawmakers introduced a resolution calling for Rosenstein's impeachment, though they stopped short of forcing a vote on the matter.

"You have to decide what you want right now because the Senate only has so much time".

"This is all political", Nunes said. Since Jeff Sessions is recused on the matter of the Russian Federation probe, the responsibility of deciding whether or not to fire Mueller, if Trump were to ask for this, falls to Rosenstein.

He went on to say he will fill out his term and "continue to fight the meritless charges brought against me". "It's a matter of, it's a matter of timing".
