Trump proposal aims at another way of getting people to work

The Secret Service has handled recording systems within the White House for previous presidents.

Never mind the political or legal consequences of making such a claim - the people CNN interviewed all said they didn't assume such a recording device existed.

Given how the tapes probably don't exist, the press secretary launched into the world famous Spicer Stammer.

Comey testified last week that "Lordy, I hope there are tapes" in his open testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Trump took to Twitter in May to hint at the existence of "tapes" of his conversations with former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, who said he had taken memos detailing potentially illicit comments made by the president in private meetings between the two. I'll tell you about it over a very short period of time.

White House spokesman Mark Corallo said: "The FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal". He's "just having a little fun", this person said of Trump's tape antics.

Though donor meetings in the White House are not uncommon, "the briefing was seen as notable in GOP finance circles partly because of the timing".

Trump had told O'Brien that he had a secret recording system in Trump Tower and had taped journalists.

Knowing this, another reporter asked what's stopping the president from releasing tapes that supposedly exonerate President Trump from obstructing justice.

"I appointed him; I stand by that decision, " he said.

"Oh, you're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer, don't worry". That has prompted a former law enforcement professional and others to say that it reveals a troubling disregard for national security on the president's part (which it does). If he did make the tapes and hands them over, he better hope they prove his version of the facts, and not Comey's.

Nixon citing executive privilege, refused to turn them over and sought to fire Cox.

After Mr Comey's testimony, Mr Trump said he had been vindicated because it was confirmed he had been told on three occasions that he was not under investigation.

That tweet led the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director to leak portions of the memos he had kept to document his conversations with Trump - in the hopes of prompting the appointment of a special counsel.
