In leaked audio, Devin Nunes gives up the game on collusion

James Clarke



At a private fundraiser for Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, House Intelligence Committee chair Devin Nunes conceded that collusion is in fact a crime.

Nunes’ position is at odds with that of President Trump and his legal team, who have recently argued that collusion is not a crime.

Audio of Nunes’ remarks at the private fundraiser was aired on Wednesday’s edition of The Rachel Maddow Show. Using a hypothetical, Nunes conceded that if a political campaign exploited emails provided to it by a foreign government that hacked them, “Then that’s criminal.”

Here’s a full transcript of what Nunes said about collusion, followed by the audio.
