No tapes after all: Trump says he didn't record Comey talks

26 June 2017, 06:21 | Gladys Abbott

Friday morning, "Fox and Friends" aired a pre-taped interview of President Trump and first lady Melania Trump at the White House, conducted one of the ever-revolving women co-hosts.

No tapes were ever uncovered, but Comey later revealed during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing that he orchestrated the release of a memo that detailed conversations between him and the president. Trump conceded on Thursday that he doesn't have any such recordings.

"You can't give the other side any opportunity to accuse you of political partisanship, which is why I think it was a mistake for Mueller to hire, essentially, people who have been large contributors to the [Clinton] campaign", said Dershowitz.

US President Donald Trump has talked privately about the possibility of firing special counsel Robert Mueller, something the president would have to do by ordering his Justice Department to remove him.

"Well, it wasn't very stupid, I can tell you that", Mr Trump told Ainsley Earhardt after she commented that his tactics were a smart way to keep Mr Comey honest.

The poll also said 46 percent of Americans disapproved of Trump's decision to fire Comey - up from 38 percent in May - while just 27 percent approved of Comey's ouster.

Trump fired Comey on May 9. After that statement was published, Trump's personal lawyer said the president felt "completely and totally vindicated". "Now, Trump's great fight is to have his presidency remembered for something else". But I don't think it'll be that hard. "He did admit tat what I said was right, and, if you look further back before he heard about that, maybe he was not admitting that". "What would do that?"

The former head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation testified before a Senate committee that Trump had asked him to halt a probe into former national security adviser Michael Flynn's alleged collision with Russian Federation. "But he's also - we're going to have to see". He is a good guy.

"By talking about something like tapes made Comey in particular think to himself 'I better be honest, I better tell the truth, '" Spicer said in the Fox News interview. So you'll have to do a little investigative reporting to determine that.

"No. No. Next question", said Trump. Trump issued the tweet three days after firing the FBI director, which he later said was in part because of his displeasure with the FBI's Russian Federation investigation. So you never know what's out there, and I didn't tape and I don't have any tape and I didn't tape. "And my judgment was I needed to get that out into the public square".

Mr Trump admitted earlier this week he had no recordings of their meetings. Michael Conaway and Adam Schiff and Sens. T. Short, assistant to the president for legislative affairs, said in a letter.
