Is President Trump Recording His Meetings?

Daily Mail: Did Trump set up Comey? President warns ousted FBI boss there might be 'tapes' of their conversations after insisting the top Fed assured him he WASN'T being investigated over Russian links

* Trump's veiled threat comes as Comey is asked to testify before a Senate panel next week
* President said Thursday that he and Comey spoke three times – including two phone calls and one dinner together
* On all three occasions, he insisted, Comey assured him he wasn't the subject of any FBI investigations
* Trump fired Comey on Tuesday

Donald Trump lobbed a veiled threat at the former FBI director on Friday, hinting that some of their conversations before his firing may have been recorded.

'James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!' the president tweeted.

It's unclear whether Trump was warning that the White House is recording his calls, or if he believes the FBI may have been recording Comey's.

Trump said Thursday during an interview with NBC News that the two men have spoken at least three times since Inauguration Day.

I can understand wanting to have recorded tapes etc but come on, that tweet is so far beneath how a President should be speaking. I mean, I have no experience in politics so, what's your opinion with regard to the tweet WNU?

Alex. Trump is being Trump. I have said it more than once in this blog. He is not your normal politician, and that is why his critics and the media are always misreading him because they look at him through their prism on how a politician should behave .... including how a President should behave. But that formula cannot work with President Trump .... and I predict that they will never be able to understand that.

"that tweet is so far beneath how a President should be speaking."

It is warranted.

The enemedia has sunk to such depths that smash mouth, no holds barred media attack back at the traditional media is warranted.

Po ole JabberJay

Presidents have been recording since LBJ or JFK.

We record about everything.

"But America's former top cop is 'not worried about any tapes' of those talks between him and the president, according to CNN, who quoted a Comey friend saying that 'if there is a tape, there's nothing he is worried about.'

NBC News has its own secret access to Comey's inner circle, with one person close to him saying: 'He hopes there are tapes. That would be perfect.'"

Comey is a weather vane.

1) When Obama wanted him to spike the Hillary investigation, he spiked it.

2) when he though Trump would when, he opened the investigation up again.

3) When Obama and company leaned on hi m to close the investigation again and get the attorney General Lynch & Obama of the hook, he dutifully held the infamous press conference.

The AG is the one who makes the decision to prosecute. Comey investigates and gives his recommendation.

I am not worried about you dude. You have been slipping a lot lately.

I think your in the same boat as the David Protess's of the world/

Comey has been has been hated since the summer of 2016.

Just being consistent.

Comey being hated is independent of whoever the GOP candidate was.

It was dependent on his impartiality on investigating the Clinton malfeasance and on not bending to the Obama admin. He failed on both counts.

I have yet to se an American president get in trouble for taping something. They might or have gotten on trouble for taping something and erasing it, but not fore taping it.

So Jay get real, quit pissing into the wind with your mouth open.
