Leaked recording: Nunes says Rosenstein impeachment would delay Supreme Court pick

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

When questioned about why Rosenstein has not already been impeached, Nunes said "it's a bit complicated" because "we only have so many months left".

Nunes concludes by saying Republicans need to keep their majority in Congress to protect the president.

At least one lawmaker, Rep. Ted Lieu, D-El Segundo, took to Twitter to call on Nunes to resign. "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.

"We have to keep the majority", he adds. A spokesman for Nunes didn't return a request for comment sent late Wednesday by The Washington Post.

It is clear that he intends to undermine the investigation because he lists keeping control of the House as an alternative to Attorney General Jeff Sessions - who is recused from the investigation and all related matters on the advice of ethics experts - taking control of the probe or to Mueller finding the president to be innocent.

The Republican House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes is anxious about the November midterm elections.

The event was closed to the press, and more than a hundred protesters gathered outside to criticize McMorris Rodgers for bringing Nunes, who's stated publicly he'd like to impeach Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general in charge of the Russian probe.

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.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), no stranger to recent political gaffes, a has a secret master plan to save President Donald Trump from the nefarious forces lurking in the nether reaches of government. "It's a matter of, it's a matter of timing".

He is asked by an audience member about the effort to impeach Rosenstein, which was only publicly supported by a small group of Republicans. "I don't think we should be cavalier with this process or term".

The remarks appear to be a blunt assessment from Nunes, a top Trump ally in Congress who Democrats accuse of trying to help the White House with the Russian Federation probe, that Republicans must keep their House majority in the midterm elections to shield Trump from the special counsel investigation. "But if they tell a lie often enough and they put it out there and they say, 'Oh, we're looking at the tweets, ' cause you know you've got a mixed bag on the tweets, right?"
