That's why I keep-thank you for saying that, by the way-we have to keep all these, we have to keep the majority.

As Nunes sees it, Republicans must also choose their priorities within the limited amount of time they have before the midterms. Nunes said at a recent fundraiser that Republicans need to keep control of the House to protect President Donald Trump from the Russian Federation investigation, according to an audio recording released today.

The California 22nd Congressional District congressman was apparently pitching himself and the Republican Party at large as a buffer for Trump, who, among several members of his election campaign, is a subject in the special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

"We have to keep the majority", he adds.

Well, when you look at what leaders of the Freedom Caucus are doing, when you look at what Nunes is doing, I think we need to stop saying what they're doing is trying to protect Donald Trump, because what they're actually doing is they're protecting Vladimir Putin and covering up more crimes that the United States military and Intel agencies are digging at right now. We have to keep the majority. "It's a matter of timing". The person had paid the $250 to attend the fundraiser that Nunes held with House Republican Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash.

It seems Nunes is anxious about whether Republicans would be able to make up the majority in the upcoming November elections and the fact that the GOP is the only thing stopping the removal of Donald Trump as president. But at another point during the fundraiser, he addressed the issue of collusion, considering a hypothetical situation in which a campaign received stolen emails from a foreign power and then released them, labeling this activity "criminal". "But ultimately let's say the Portuguese came and brought her some stolen emails, and she chose to release those".

"If there ever was a better reason to get rid of Paul Ryan's party, it's this", Rubin said. Okay, now we have a problem, right? In 2016, the London-based anti-secrecy activist had contact with Roger Stone, an informal adviser to Trump, according to two of Stone's associates. He called the president's tweets a "mixed bag".

"If Sessions won't un-recuse and Mueller won't clear the president, we're the only ones, which is really the danger", he says on the recording.

"This is all political", Nunes said.
