WASHINGTON – Mystery solved: No, President Trump doesn’t have recordings of former FBI director James Comey.
“With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea … whether there are ‘tapes’ or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings,” Trump said in a pair of tweets Thursday.
Trump did not explain why he made the suggestion that he secretly recorded conversations with his former FBI director in the first place, which came in a May tweet shortly after he fired Comey.
Shortly after firing the FBI director early last month, Trump ignited a wave of speculation about recordings with an enigmatic tweet saying that “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”
