Liberals love Shepard Smith's Trump-bashing tirade over Comey tapes

Trump says no recordings of conversations between him and former FBI director Comey

Special Counsel Robert Mueller departs after briefing members of the US Senate on his investigation into potential collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign on Capitol Hill in Washington, US, June 21, 2017.

"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," Trump wrote on Twitter.

"If the president had no tapes, why did he suggest otherwise?"

President Donald Trump appeared to acknowledge Friday in an interview that his tweet hinting of taped conversations with James Comey was meant to influence the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director's testimony before Congress, and he emphasized that he committed "no obstruction" of the inquiries into whether his campaign colluded with Russian Federation. "So you never know what's out there, but I didn't tape, and I don't have any tape and I didn't tape".

White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters that while Trump "retains the authority" to dismiss special counsel Robert Mueller, "he has no intention of doing that".

Earlier on Thursday, Trump said he did not record any of his meetings with Comey after claiming that he got hold of records that would sabotage Comey's findings and claims.

Trump had indicated back on May 17 that he might have recorded his conversations with Comey who he later fired.

CNN's article titled: "Special Counsel #Robert Mueller meets with House Russia investigators" reported that the Senate Intel Committee was not pursuing a case for obstruction of justice against the President, but it did mention that the Senate Judiciary Committee would, per Chairman Chuck Grassley and ranking member Sen. He should have done something about it.

"Special Counsel Robert Mueller should recuse himself because the integrity of his appointment is in question due to former FBI Director James Comey's manipulative leaks and the relationship between Mr. Comey and Mr. Mueller", Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) claimed.

"Well he's very, very good friends with Comey, which is very bothersome". The president is said to have railed in private about Mueller to aides and has said he wants to leave open the option of firing him.

"I can say that the people that have been hired are all Hillary Clinton supporters".
