Are there Trump tapes? Congress is asking, and it may issue subpoenas

Irune Rengel | 14 Junio, 2017, 11:23

Former FBI Director James Comey testifies before a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 USA presidential election on Capitol Hill in Washington June 8, 2017.

"[The hearing] was an excuse by the Democrats, who lost an election they shouldn't have lost", Mr Trump said in the White House Rose Garden, during a news conference with the visiting Romanian President Klaus Iohannis.

President Donald Trump on Friday broke his silence on Twitter following explosive testimony by fired FBI Director James Comey, declaring "total and complete vindication".

The issue at the centre of the hearing was whether Trump had obstructed justice by asking Comey to drop the investigation of the former national security adviser, General Michael Flynn.

President Trump, however, refused to say whether his private conversations with Comey were taped.

The question immediately arises that if Comey leaked this valuable information to the Times, how many other times did he leak anti-Trump information, or damaging information about others, to the media before?

"Well, I'll tell you about that - maybe sometime in the very near future", Mr Trump said. Second, Comey said he was confused about why he was sacked.

The Russia investigations have consumed the White House and distracted the president and lawmakers from his governing agenda. He said they may call in Federal Bureau of Investigation officials, including those sitting in the room with Comey during one of his phone conversations.

During his testimony Thursday, Comey told lawmakers that Trump was not a target in the bureau's investigation into Russian Federation.

After the election but before the inauguration, Trump asked Bharara to stay on as USA attorney in Manhattan when they met at Trump Tower.

The first lady tweeted the news on Sunday evening after she arrived at the White House with Trump and their 11-year-old son, Barron.

His tweet aside, Trump did not mention the Russian Federation probe during an infrastructure speech Friday at the U.S. Transportation Department, but did say he wants people in public service to "rise above the petty partisan squabbling that plagues our nation" and focus on fixing problems.

Trump made the remarks while responding to questions on Comey's explosive testimony in which he accused the president of trying to stop a probe into the alleged Russian interference in the USA elections past year.

"I hardly know the man, I'm not going to say, "I want you to pledge allegiance", Trump said. He found it "very weird and peculiar" to be drawn into private conversations with the president.

Two officials familiar with Trump's legal strategy said his lawyers plan to file a complaint about Comey's leak with the Inspector General's office at the Department of Justice, and with the Senate Judiciary and Intelligence committees. The friend was later identified as Daniel Richman, a professor at Columbia Law School. That report could come just in time to help shape the 2018 elections and the chances that a potential Democratic-controlled Congress does take a swing at impeachment, using the report as its guide.

Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer, responding to Trump's statement last week that he would "100%" speak under oath about the Comey affair, said he would like the president to testify in public before the Senate.

Then, in what many seem to consider the hearing's most important moment, Comey admitted that Trump's sentence was not an explicit order.
