Rachel talking Nunes- THey have a tape that wasn't supposed to be public - turn it on!

Edited to add: Nunes said they do plan to impeach Rosenstein but want to wait till after Kavenaugh is confirmed and after the election.

They have to keep the majority "or all of this goes away if Sessions won't resign and Mueller won't clear POTUS, "We are the only ones who can stop it."

RAchel going to post audio and transcript online.

1. It's him saying mildly negative things about Trump at a fundraiser (edit to add: and much more!)

 

Last edited Wed Aug 8, 2018, 09:40 PM - Edit history (1)

Recorded secretly.

Edit to add: He also talks about impeaching Rosenstein - and the strategy behind the timing of that.

Seems like the standard Republicans being Republicans kind of thing - but maybe this will have some impact.

18. You are absolutely right. It's big.

itís a great motivator for Dems to get out and vote since itís clear now that the plan will be to get rid of Rosenstein right after the election. We have them literally saying that is the plan.

also bound to cause some strife in the trump orbit.

The person above and below who is saying itís a nothingburger was also quite angry about Sasha Baron Cohen making the likes of Arpaio and Roy Moore look like idiots on his show, so not someone with well thought out hot takes.

33. I hate that these non-patriots are corruptly ruining

the careers and reputations of public servants. Yeah, maybe I disagree with Comey and McCabe and Rosenstein on all sorts of issues, but I wouldn't ever deny that they are men who have spent most of their careers in service to our country, trying to do their best as they saw it.

I can't say the same of anyone in the Trump circle.
Nunes is one of the ugly little demonettes, you know. No strength, no skill, just really quick to lick up Trump's spittle.

that only Congress getting rid of Mueller by way of getting rid of Rosenstein can save Trump's ass. Now why would he say that if Trump is not guilty of something?

42. I think it is big.

You basically have Nunes admitting that the dump tower meeting was a criminal act, and then going on to say that the republicans need to keep the majority in the house so that they can obstruct the Mueller probe.

I don't know if it will get Nunes prosecuted, but it is a naked admission of criminality. The democrats should chop it up and use it for attack ads.

20. Nunes wants to impeach a member of DOJ so that the Mueller probe can be

terminated so that republicans keep the House. Is that right?

This should be front page headline news. Sounds like Brown Act and obstruction of justice charges should be leveled tomorrow. How can this stand, legally??

This is the kind of thing that corrupt government can do...fake investigations, fake impeachments, fake reports, fake science, propaganda from govt offices, deception, cronyism....this is the way they want to hang onto power, not doing the people's business but lying to the people.

Really..what keeps Ryan from removing him tomorrow? What keeps DOJ from an indictment?

24. No, it's more like Nunes saying they can't get rid of Rosenstein

until after the election because the Senate is busy with more important stull like approving a SCOTUS nominee. But more importantly, he's implying if not saying this is the only way to save Trump's ass, which shouldn't be a necessity if Trump is innocent.

27. He is the Chairman of the House Oversight Comittee.

 

His job is to be a check and balance on the Executive Branch. He was just caught on tape admitting that, if Sessions doesnít recuse himself and Mueller doesnít clear the Con Man, then he has no choice but to ruin the career and reputation of Rosenstein for the sole purpose of obstructing justice by ending the investigation on Don the Conís behalf. Spineless Pauly had to take away Collinsí chairmanship today. Tomorrow spineless Pauly will have to remove Nunes which he should have long since done on ethical grounds. The Rethuglicans are imploding.

28. Does Nunes understand that even if the repubs could impeach Rosenstein

which is doubtful today and likely to be totally out of the question after November, since the best case for the Repubs is that they hold the house by a far narrower margin than today, they have zero possibility of the Senate convicting him and removing him from office? Indeed, it is highly unlikely that the Trumpites could even muster a majority in the Senate let alone the required 2/3 majority.

Dumb as a brick.
