President Trump Turns to Apprenticeships to Get People to Work

At Monday’s briefing, White House press secretary Sean Spicer kept alive hope that such recordings might exist.White House spokesman Mark Corallo said: “The FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal”.The US Secret Service said there are “no records” of audio copies or transcripts of recordings in President Donald Trump’s White House. “You’d tend to say that the last few months seemed to last a long time if lots had happened, and to be faster if not much had”.When past presidents like Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy were in office, the Secret Service was in charge of maintaining their taped conversations.That left open the possibility that other White House staff, or Trump himself, could have been involved in recording their talks, if anyone.The agency issued that statement in response to The Wall Street Journal’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request Monday, amid pointed questions following Trump’s suggestion that there may be recordings of his interactions with former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey. He’s “just having a little fun“, this person said of Trump’s tape antics.The House Intelligence Committee has requested the White House turn over any tapes that might exist.”Lordy, I hope there are tapes”, Comey now-famously exclaimed during his testimony before the Senate last week, indicating such tapes would corroborate Comey’s memo stating Trump told the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, “I hope you can let this [probe into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn] go”. The agency got back to the paper and said it has nothing to give.Another Republican close to the White House said Trump’s tape comments appeared similar to the hard-nosed tactics he took when his company was facing litigation. If he did make the tapes and hands them over, he better hope they prove his version of the facts, and not Comey’s. Comey also testified he had told Trump he was not under investigation.”I’m pretty sure Comey wasn’t lying here”, the aide said.If you aren’t a fan of Trump, your perception of time is probably even worse than that of people who like the president. An OANN reporter asked when the president will release the tapes, and Spicer referred to Trump’s Friday presser stating that “the president made clear in the Rose Garden last week he’ll have an announcement shortly”.
