Congressman Demands Trump Provide Those 'Tapes' of His Conversations With Comey

In case you missed it, President Trump was up early Friday morning tweeting threats toward outgoing FBI Director James Comey. Comey, whom the White House claims "lost the confidence" of the agency, better be careful not to leak any information, or the administration will search for "tapes" of their conversations. In those discussions, Trump says Comey told him he was not under investigation for possible collusion with Russia.

Trump’s message to Comey made Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) uncomfortable. In a letter to White House Counsel Donald F. McGahn, II, he asked for more information. If such recordings in the White House do exist, would the administration kindly provide Trump's conversations with Comey, as well as tapes involving former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and Trump’s closed meeting with Russian officials this week?

These recordings, the congressman insists, will help clarify the confusing narrative from the White House regarding when Trump decided to fire Comey.
