"Which is really the danger", Nunes said, referring to Atty.

Devin Nunes, the House Intelligence Committee chairman and one of President Donald Trump's most vocal supporters in Congress, is anxious about the Republican Party's prospects in the November midterm elections.

The Mueller investigation is now looking at the extent of Russian intervention in the 2016 US Presidential election, and whether there was any collusion from the Trump campaign.

"If we do not keep the majority, all of this goes away".

A recording of a fundraising event with Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) reveals why Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein hasn't yet been impeached despite so many Republicans calling for the action - and what they're waiting for. "The question is the timing of it right before the election".

"Are you kidding me?" the ex-CIA agent asked incredulously before launching into a tirade against Nunes for conducting such a softball investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

Manchester United want to rush through deal for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic
Lazio President Claudio Lotito will not consider any offers for the midfielder that are below €120m. "So far no one has come forward".

US President Donald Trump pledged on Tuesday to prevent companies with business dealings with Iran from dealing with the United States.

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.

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 ultimately let's say the Portuguese came and brought her some stolen emails, and she made a decision to release those".

"These are sensible ideas, I'm glad Chairman Nunes talked about them", Jack Langer, a spokesman for Nunes, said in a statement to The Hill. But it's a fair question right now. On those tapes, Nunes, who didn't know he was being recorded, can be heard at a private function explaining that Congress - particularly the House Freedom Caucus - has been all bark and no bite on Rosenstein impeachment proceedings because it would distract Congress from bigger issues. "Well, if that's the case, then that's criminal". "It's a matter of, it's a matter of timing", he added.

"Now if somebody thinks that my campaign or Cathy's campaign is colluding with the Chinese, or you name the country, hey, could happen, it would be a very bad thing if Cathy was getting secrets from the Portuguese, let's say, just because I'm Portuguese, my family was", Nunes said, using McMorris Rodgers as an example in his hypothetical.
