How Low will Donald Trump Go? Admits No Comey Oval Office Tape Exists

U.S. President Donald Trump has sunk to a new low. And I am not talking about his tanking approval numbers.

Most Americans know Donald Trump is a liar. Now, it would appear he does not have integrity and he is willing to drag the office of the presidency down as much as he possibly can.

After weeks of threatening to release an audio of his Oval Office meeting with James Comey, the former Director of the FBI, Trump tweeted today that no such tape exists.

“I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings,” Trump tweeted.

But then in his characteristic bluster, he hinted that perhaps a third party whom he failed to identify may have recorded the conversation with Comey..

“With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea whether there are ‘tapes’ or recordings of my conversations with James Comey,” he tweeted.

Days after he unceremoniously fired the FBI director, Trump tweeted that he may have recorded his earlier conversation with him.

“James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!” Trump tweeted.

At the time and despite requests by the media for confirmation of the existence of the tapes, the While House refused to give further confirmation.

The president’s tweets set off a chain of events that culminated in Director Comey leaking his notes of the Oval office meeting to the press.

That leak resulted in the appointment of a special counsel, Robert Mueller III to investigate the Trump-Russia collusion during the 2016 presidential elections, among other issues.

Asked by the media to explain why President Trump would suggest the existence of audio tapes even when he knew none existed, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders refused to explain.

The White House spokeswoman also said she didn’t think the suggestion of the presence of the tapes amounted to a threat against Comey by President Trump.

“Not that I’m aware of. I don’t think so,” Sanders said when the media asked if that was meant as a threat.

“The president’s statement via Twitter today is extremely clear. I don’t have anything to add beyond the statement itself,” she told reporters at the White House.

During his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, James Comey sounded almost giddy at the possibility of the existence of such tapes.

“Lordy, I hope there are tapes,” Comey said when Senators asked him about the tapes.
