President Trump said on Friday that fired FBI Director James Comey should be wary of recordings of their conversations.
Trump posted on Twitter that Comey “better hope that there are no “tapes” of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press,” hinting that there may be recordings of conversations between the two.

The implication of the president’s remarks is that Comey may refute Trump’s assertions that Comey told him on three separate occasions that he was not under investigation.
The president thanked Comey for telling him “on three separate occasions” that he was “not under investigation” in the letter informing the FBI director of his termination.
Trump also talked about Comey’s remarks in a White House interview with NBC News‘ Lester Holt.
Last night on Twitter, the president also found a topic that he and combative rival Rosie O’Donnell could agree upon.
