Secret Service Says It Doesn't Have Any Trump Tapes

Secret Service Says It Doesn't Have Any Trump Tapes

The US Secret Service said there are "no records" of audio copies or transcripts of recordings in President Donald Trump's White House.

"Lordy, I hope there are tapes", Comey quipped.

REPORTER: So he was - sorry, just want to be very clear about this.

"In response to your request, the Secret Service has conducted a reasonable search for responsive records", the agency wrote to the Journal. The newspaper noted that it doesn't exclude the possibility of recordings created by another entity.

Spokesman Spicer declined to say then that Sessions enjoyed Trump's confidence, though spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said later in the week that the president had confidence "in all of his Cabinet".

Leaders of the House intelligence committee have written to White House lawyers to ask whether there are any records or memos of Mr Comey's discussions with the President.

Spicer ignored that question. Administration staffers still haven't answered the question.

The three terrorists had tied 12 inch (30cm) pink ceramic knives to their wrists and had petrol bombs in the van. At about 1730 GMT, the men drove to pick up the van before heading to Zaghba's home in east London .

But when asked whether Trump is putting his agenda in danger with his tweets, Spicer argued the cases shouldn't focus on his tweets. The agency got back to the paper and said it has nothing to give.

According to Mr Comey, the President during a private Oval Office meeting seemingly directed him to drop a criminal investigation into former National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn.

A Justice Department spokeswoman said Sessions requested the open setting because "he believes it is important for the American people to hear the truth directly from him".

"Really, cause that's a separate question", she said again.

"Cases should be decided on the rule of law and when you look at what the law is in the U.S. Code that allows the president to do whatever he needs to, that's what we are deciding on", he said.

Democrats have said that since Sessions recused himself from the Russian Federation probe following his disclosure of his own Kislyak contacts, he should not have taken part in matters relating to Comey's firing and the hiring of his successor. He had told lawmakers at his January confirmation hearing that he had not met with Russians during the campaign.
