Donald Trump says he didn’t record ex-FBI chief James Comey

Reuters: United States President Donald Trump on Thursday said he did not make and does not possess any recording with former FBI Director James Comey, laying to rest speculation that took place after he tweeted last month that “Comey better hope there were no tapes”.

“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 wrote on Twitter.

However, Trump did not explain why he made the suggestion that he secretly recorded conversations with his former FBI director in the first place.
