U.S. President Donald Trump admitted Thursday he does not have tapes of his private conversations with former FBI Director James Comey, bringing to a close a mystery he personally created last month, when he suggested he had privately recorded their talks, The Washington Post reported.

"The president had suggested since he had fired Comey in April he had an audio record of their conversations, the report said, as a way to intimidate Comey."

Over the past few weeks, neither Trump nor senior White House officials had confirmed to the public whether such tapes existed, the report said.

Following a congressional investigator inquiry, Trump tweeted Thursday, “I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings.”

Additional tweets by Trump said: “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.”

WN.com will update this story.

Nothin' wrong with bluffing your hand.
...and if nothing else, the threat that there might be a recording likely kept Comey honest when testifying.

Not believing it, not even a little

tramp is smart enough to know the guy was and is a snake, and a pro at that,
surely he would have covered his six

especially after last summers debacle of yes she did, no she didn't

Trump isn't a lawyer though and he's generally straightforward with his language. It seems unlikely he was mincing words here, but possible.

If I were in his shoes, I'd damn well secretly record every conversation I had with anyone. There's just too many out to get him, too many snakes in the grass not to.
Edited to add: it'd be a "cover my butt", kinda thing.

That leaves plenty of room for someone else making the recordings and storing them.
So you have them? You are someone else, are you not?

I was always under the impression Donald J was speaking of tapes that Comey had made that were obtained after Mr. Ex efbeeeye guy got canned.
