Updated at 12:34 p.m. | President Donald Trump threatened former FBI Director James Comey on Friday, suggesting he might have recorded their private conversations and is prepared to release them if Comey talks to the media.
In an extraordinary tweet, even by Trump’s standards, the president wrote: “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”
