CNN: “In a secretly recorded tape at a fund-raiser, California Republican Devin Nunes told the truth to a group of Republican donors. Not knowing he was being recorded, Rep. Nunes told the donors that the Republican majority in the House has been and remains the main firewall that has protected President Donald Trump from the fallout that could come from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of whether there were links between the Russians and his campaign and of whether the White House has attempted to obstruct the investigation.”

Said Nunes, “If Sessions won’t unrecuse and Mueller won’t clear the President, we’re the only ones. Which is really the danger … I mean we have to keep all those seats. We have to keep the majority. If we do not keep the majority, all of this goes away.”

“As chair of the House Intelligence Committee, Nunes has fought tooth and nail against allowing the lower chamber to conduct a full-throated Watergate-style investigation into what kind of interference occurred in the 2016 election.”
