Rachel Maddow last week aired secret audio obtained at a Republican fundraiser that featured Nunes. He spoke about the importance of Republicans keeping the House if they want to keep doing oversight rather than complacently accept a Clinton-funded and directed narrative of treasonous collusion. He also said that while he supports impeaching Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has obstructed congressional oversight of the FBI, the timing is bad since the Senate needs to confirm a Supreme Court justice nominee. You can watch or read his remarks here.
It notes that Nunes publicly speaks in the same way he was “caught” speaking at the fundraiser, but adds that there is a nefarious new step of coming up with the crazy idea that Democrats might want to impeach the president even though the aggressive special counsel has not provided any reason for impeachment.
First off, maybe Nunes is crazy to think that Democrats plan to impeach the president within 30 seconds of taking the House. Or, you know, maybe he got the idea that Democrats are thinking pretty intently on impeaching the president the moment they take the House from statements they’ve made here, or here, or here, or here, or here, or here, or here, or here, or here, or here, or here, or here. One or the other.
