US House panel wants formal response from Trump on Comey tapes

Trump says Comey-Mueller friendship 'bothersome'

Trump suggests he was trying to keep FBI director honest

Never one for deep reflection, Donald Trump missed the signs of Comey's true character and deemed him a "showboat".

"Well, I didn't tape him", he said in an interview with Fox News' "Fox and Friends" when asked why he wanted Comey to believe that tapes existed.

President Donald Trump has no intention of firing the special counsel investigating charges of Russian meddling in the 2016 United States election, even though he questioned the official's impartiality in an interview, the White House said on Friday.

Trump also claimed he had always told a "straight story" about whether he recorded his private conversations with Comey.

Trump's declaration now that there are no recordings appears to settle a key dynamic in that investigation: It's now the president's word against Comey's notes.

During the Fox interview, Mr Trump also questioned the impartiality of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the probe into Russia's meddling in the U.S. election and the possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

By speaking of "tapes", the President cavalierly evoked the Watergate scandal and the worst political crisis in the history of the presidency in order to hint that he, like Nixon, was capable of secretly recording his visitors.

Relations between the White House and the press continued to deteriorate on Friday as the White House communications team prohibited cameras from filming the White House press briefing.

Mueller is investigating whether Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey last month after asking him to scale back the FBI's Russian Federation probe.

Speculations were provoked when Trump sacked Comey, leading to controversies.

US President Donald Trump has laid out his belief that special counsel Robert Mueller is biased in the expanding Russian Federation investigation and suggested that he may eventually need to step down.

He complied with the order and as soon as the officers recognized him they told him to stand up and asked him to come toward them. The vehicle eventually crashed in front of a house, after which more gunfire was exchanged, according to the news station.

"I certainly think that the president would hope that the former director would tell the truth". "And if you look further back, before he heard about that, I think maybe he wasn't admitting that so, you'll have to do a little investigative reporting to determine that". Spicer echoed Trump's comments, saying the reference to "tapes" in Trump's tweet simply reflected Trump's desire for "the truth to come out".

"Big news today, you didn't-you said you didn't tape James Comey", said Fox's Ainsley Earhardt. And more questions may soon emerge as to why, in his tweets denying he recorded Comey, did he raise the possibility anew that he might be under some sort of surveillance in the White House.

After the tweet, Mr Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee to make his account of interactions with the President public. I can tell you that.

His tweet came a day before he was required by Congress to hand over any such tapes.
