Comey ‘porn’, Trump tape tease! (Washington Diary) — Trump Times

U.S. President Donald Trump announced on Thursday that he did not have any recordings of his conversations with ousted Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), James Comey.On May 12, Trump tweeted: “James Comey better hope that there are no “tapes” of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”Trump had raised the possibility of tapes in May when he fired Comey, who was heading the FBI investigation into alleged Russia’s meddling in the November 8 2016 USA presidential election.The president’s tweets on Thursday left open the possibility that the conversations may have been taped without his knowledge. That’s not to mention the fact that Trump has since indicated that his original tapes tweet was meant to essentially influence Comey’s public comments and testimony, something some believe could qualify as witness intimidation or obstruction of justice – something the president is already believed to be under investigation for.After that, Trump and top White House aides repeatedly refused to provide a straightforward answer about whether tapes existed – until Thursday, when Trump finally admitted in two carefully-phrased tweets that he made no tapes of his meetings with Comey.The former head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation testified before a Senate committee that Trump had asked him to drop a probe into former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s alleged ties to Russian Federation.As President, Mr Trump could demand that Mr Rosenstein fire Mr Mueller, but Mr Rosenstein has said he would not follow any order that he did not think was lawful or appropriate.The four leaders of the investigations, Reps.”He also offered some sane advice to “those out to get President Trump” to stop concocting “‘crimes’ out of the most innocent behaviour”. Asked whether his strategy was smart, Trump said, “It wasn’t very stupid; I can tell you that”.One week after the memo was disclosed, the Justice Department appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to take over the investigation into contacts between Russian Federation and the Trump political campaign.Mr Trump criticised Mr Mueller for having appointed “all Hillary Clinton supporters” to his staff for the investigation. “He was – he did admit that what I said was right”.”Perhaps someone could argue that the president’s tweet could be used to discourage Comey from testifying, because his words would never precisely match a tape; I don’t buy it”, Mariotti said.Trump’s earlier suggestion about tapes evoked the secret White House recordings that led to Richard Nixon’s downfall in the Watergate scandal. “I hope you can let this go”.Evidence: Former FBI chief James Comey’s 150 minute tell-all tale about his firing was so riveting that even some avid porn addicts tuned in to the June 8 Senate hearing.
