Devin Nunes accidentally revealed his master plan to everyone

The person had paid the $250 to attend the fundraiser that Nunes held with House Republican Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash.

Remember, while it's Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein who has the power the fire Mueller right now, Trump also has the constitutional power to direct repeal of a regulation that the attorney general alone may fire a special counsel.

The audio, released by MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and recorded at a closed-door California fundraiser, shows Nunes admitting that collusion with a foreign government is a crime before offering a very narrow definition of that crime.

He continued: "Do you want them to drop everything and not confirm the Supreme Court justice, the new Supreme Court justice?"

A small group of conservatives introduced impeachment documents targeting Rosenstein last month and withdrew them less than 24 hours later. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan dismissed the idea. They've unearthed some of his crimes, they're looking for more crimes, but you have Devin Nunes bragging about trying to stop the investigation against Putin and Russia's interference in American democracy.

Nunes said he thinks Rosenstein "deserves to be impeached", but noted that "the Senate would have to drop everything they're doing and start to, and start with impeachment on Rosenstein".

Tammy Abraham - 5 - Came off the bench and looked lively but his link-up play and understanding with those around him was lacking. He almost had hat-trick with a back-post volley from Kyle Walker's deep cross, but Caballero made one of many saves to deny him.

In the recording, you can hear McMorris Rodgers say, "Also, the Senate has to start". If Trump wants the House Republicans to do this dirty work for him through impeachment, as explained, that can't happen until Kavanaugh is confirmed, for the reasons Nunes gave.

"It's a matter of timing", Nunes said.

"If we actually vote to impeach, what that does is that triggers the Senate then has to take it up", Nunes said on the audio, adding, that the "Senate only has so much time".

The fundraiser, which featured Nunes as the headliner, was closed to the press. He is an adamantly pro-Trump lawmaker who in February released a memorandum accusing the intelligence community of conspiring against the president. Investigators are reportedly hoping to ask the president questions about possible obstruction of justice when Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey, who at the time was leading the Russian Federation investigation. "If we do not keep the majority, all of this goes away", said Nunes, R-Calif.

Nunes went so far as to say that "If [AG] Sessions won't unrecuse and Mueller won't clear the president, we're the only ones [who can protect Trump]". "Devin Nunes is saying, 'I don't care what [special counsel Robert] Mueller finds, we're supposed to be a block on the Mueller process'".

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.
