Asked about the impeachment plans, Nunes told a questioner that “it’s a bit complicated” because “we only have so many months left.”
“So if we actually vote to impeach, OK, what that does is that triggers the Senate then has to take it up,” he said on the recording. “Well, and you have to decide what you want right now because the Senate only has so much time.”
He continued: “Do you want them to drop everything and not confirm the Supreme Court justice, the new Supreme Court justice?”
“The Senate would have to drop everything they’re doing … and start with impeachment on Rosenstein. And then take the risk of not getting Kavanaugh confirmed,” Nunes said. “So it’s not a matter that any of us like Rosenstein. It’s a matter of, it’s a matter of timing.”
So the argument for not impeaching the Deputy Attorney General right now is because it might interfere with getting Trump’s Supreme Court nominee confirmed, and the argument given to fundraisers for helping the Republicans maintain their majority is so they can stop or at least impede the ongoing Mueller investigation.
I don’t think I have heard a much better reason for Democrats to turn out in mass numbers this election, than the one just given by Congressman Devin Nunes.
If we want justice we are going to have to fight for it at the ballot box.
Because these people are openly talking about their plans for obstructionism.
Update: Look who chimed in to make my point.
This is an illegally brought Rigged Witch Hunt run by people who are totally corrupt and/or conflicted. It was started and paid for by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats. Phony Dossier, FISA disgrace and so many lying and dishonest people already fired. 17 Angry Dems? Stay tuned!
