WASHINGTON (CBSMiami) – After weeks of speculation, President Donald Trump has finally come clean about comments he made concerning “tapes” of his private conversations in the White House with former FBI Director James Comey.

The question about tapes was raised days after the President fired Comey on May 9th. President Trump reportedly fired Comey because he was unwilling to back off the Russia investigation. Comey has testified that Mr. Trump asked him to drop an investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Trump raised the possibility of tapes in a strategic fashion to deter Comey from talking to reporters.

Mr. Trump maintains he never colluded with Russia and the investigation was a “witch hunt” and “fake news.”

On June 9th, the House Intelligence Committee sent a letter to White House Counsel Don McGahn requesting information on whether there were recordings of the conversations between President Trump and Comey in the Oval Office. If such recordings did exist, copies of them were to be handed over by Friday, June 23rd.

    The President wanted to play games…. It is sick, sad and pathetic this is the behavior that is acceptable to so many from the President of the United States. … I keep imaging Obama pulling even half the sht this guy has.. And the outroar from the very people who now are just fine with a Mr Trump and his growing swamp of lobbyists and corporate interests working against those folks own best interests.

    Trump lies week after week and Trumpkins just clap like a bunch of seals at the zoo.

    Trump supporters think he will kick out immigrants and re-establish the patriarchy. They think he will get rid of Obamacare, which, ironically, will hurt most of his supporters. Under Obamacare, my previously unaffordable premium is now down to $85/month. My auto insurance is down to $25/month (from Insurance Panda). My homeowners is $25/month too. Under Trump, expect inflation and massive price increases across the board.

    This ship is sinking faster than Trump’s approval rating. Trump’s coverup is getting tinier than his hands too. All these blind Trump supporters wanna do is complain about the media. Please, I’ve seen kids that whine less.
