I did not record Comey conversations: Trump
New Delhi [India], June 23 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump has said that he does not have any tapes or recording of his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey.
Trump also clarified that he did not make any such secret recordings of 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 series of tweet.
Trump had last month warned Comey not to "leak" details of their conversations to the media, hinting that he might have recorded his White House conversation with Comey and others days after he had fired him as the FBI director.
"James Comey better hope that there are no 'tapes' of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!" Trump had said.
Comey had accused Trump of firing him to try to undermine the FBI's investigation of a possible collusion between the Trump Campaign and Russia in alleged efforts to influence last year's presidential election.
Comey had told the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee that the Trump administration had lied and defamed him and the FBI after the President dismissed him on May 9. (ANI)
