Maddow’s Secret Tape Snags Nunes Agreeing with Self

(2018-08-09) — MSNBC commentator Rachel Maddow has released a “revelatory” secret recording of Republican California Rep. Devin Nunes making unguarded comments at a closed-door GOP fundraiser in which Nunes privately echoes his own public comments.

The blockbuster recording demonstrates conclusively that Nunes believes..

  • Attorney General Jeff Sessions should not have recused himself from the Russia investigation,
  • that Special Counsel Robert Mueller should wrap up his probe,
  • that Republicans in Congress may be the last line of defense for President Trump, and
  • that his party needs to maintain its House majority.

While all of these are opinions Nunes has publicly avowed, it’s devastating to hear them on a secret recording made by activist interlopers at a private fundraising event, according to people who secretly tape private meetings.

A Liberal activist group, FUSE Washington, paid to infiltrate the GOP gathering. That investment paid off in some hot-mic moments that reverberated around the Capitol this morning.

“It’s one thing for a Congressman to say he supports Trump, wants the Mueller probe to end, and his party to dominate the legislature,” said an unnamed Democratic aide. “But on this dinner recording, with the sound of utensils on plates, when Nunes didn’t know he was being taped, to hear him say the same thing he usually says — well, that’s virtually unprecedented in D.C.. Nobody does that.”

Rachel Maddow’s exclusive release of these stunning recordings seems likely to vault her onto the list of journalists who would be a household name if anyone were watching MSNBC.
