Nunes made the comment at a fundraiser for House Republican Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, according leaked audio obtained by NBC and played on the Rachel Maddow Show. Up until then, he said, the panel's work had largely been done on a bipartisan basis.

Nunes went so far as to say that "If [AG] Sessions won't unrecuse and Mueller won't clear the president, we're the only ones [who can protect Trump]".

The Nunes-led House Intelligence Committee conducted a yearlong investigation of Russia's election interference.

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.

"At that point, I think the chairman of the committee, Devin Nunes, made the decision that this was too unsafe to the president, to continue to investigate what Russian Federation did", Schiff told Castro. "That's why I keep - and thank you for saying it, by the way - I mean, we have to keep all these seats".

Nunes' office did not immediately return a request for comment today, but his spokesman Jack Langer told The Hill newspaper that "these are sensible ideas".

The fundraiser, which featured Nunes as the headliner, was closed to the press.

Ted Lieu tweeted "Under our Constitution, the duty of Congress is not to clear the President. It's a matter of timing". Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., responded by saying he opposed the effort and reaffirmed his belief that Justice Department officials were acting appropriately.

"Well, and you have to decide what you want right now because the Senate only has so much time", he added. But ultimately let's say the Portuguese came and brought her some stolen emails.

Nunes also noted that while he supports impeaching Rosenstein, he knows it would be unpopular, and can't do that until after the election: "I've said publicly Rosenstein deserves to be impeached... the question is the timing of it right before the election". "I don't think we should be cavalier with this process or term". "Well, if that's the case, then that's criminal".

"This is all political", Nunes said.
