Trump in an interview on Fox & Friends Friday said; “I don’t have any tape and I didn’t tape, repeating his Thursday tweet. “My story didn’t change. My story was always a straight story. My story was always the truth.”
After Trump fired FBI Director James Comey last month, he tweeted that the fired director “better hope there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”
In his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey said Trump’s tweet made him give his memos of meetings with Trump to a friend. At the hearing, Comey told the committee “Lordy, I hope there are tapes,” giving the President the go-ahead to release the tapes.
“When he found out that I, you know, that there may be tapes out there, whether it’s governmental tapes or anything else, and who knows, I think his story may have changed, you’ll have to take a look at that because then he has to tell what actually took place at the events… You’ll have to determine for yourself whether or not his story changed”, Trump said.
“Well, it wasn’t very stupid, I can tell you that. He was — he did admit that what I said was right. And if you look further back, before he heard about that, I think maybe he wasn’t admitting that” Trump said without specifying to which of Comey’s past statements he was alluding. “So you’ll have to do a little investigative reporting to determine that. But I don’t think it will be that hard.”
