President Trump implied that there are recordings of conversations he had with former FBI Director James Comey.
On Twitter Friday morning, the president wrote: “James Comey better hope that there are no “tapes” of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”

Trump’s remark comes just hours after the New York Times published an account of a dinner he had with Comey a week after he was sworn in in January. According to the report, Trump asked Comey to pledge his loyalty to him, but Comey refused, saying “he would always be honest with him, but that he was not ‘reliable’ in the conventional political sense.”
