Recently canned FBI Director James Comey isn’t sweating if there are tapes of recent conversations between him and President Donald Trump, one source told CNN Friday.
The source, whom is reportedly familiar with the matters, added that ‘if there is a tape, there’s nothing he is about’ that could be on it.
Friday morning Trump tweeted, “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press.”
It was a veiled threat towards Comey.
According to CNN’s Jake Tapper, which all reports should be taken with a grain of salt, Comey was ‘taken aback’ by Trump’s request for personal assurance he was not under investigation.
According to the report, Comey refused saying he could not make such assurances or pledges, but he did promise to always be honest with the President.
The source said of the dinner between Comey and Trump on January 27 that it came at Trump’s request and was one-on-one.
The source noted that a few days before the dinner, Comey had already been told by the President that he would stay on the job.
“It is absolutely untrue that Jim asked to have dinner or that he asked to have his job,” the source said. “That is a complete fabrication.”
The source said Comey knew it was possible he would lose his job, especially when he did not agree to pledge loyalty and later with the fallout over refuting the President’s claims that President Barack Obama ordered the wiretapping of Trump Tower, but he didn’t expect it when he was fired. The source said Comey thought at least he would get a phone call.
The source said Comey is likely not going to testify next week to Senate intelligence. As of Friday morning, Comey had not responded to the request.
Again, this is coming from CNN’s sources so who knows what is true.
Would be hilarious to find out there were tapes and Trump was right.
