I did not obstruct Russia probe

  • First Lady Melania Trump also took part in the interview. She spoke after her husband to say she and Barron were'all settled in the White House

Six weeks after he sent a tweet threatening ex-FBI Director James Comey that "tapes" may exist of their conversations, President Donald Trump revealed that he did not record Comey and wasn't in possession of any tapes.

In an interview with Fox News that aired Friday, Trump said Mueller is "very, very good friends with Comey, which is very bothersome".

"I can tell you that he did admit that what I said was right", Trump said, referring to Comey's initial refusal during his tenure to say the president himself wasn't under investigation in the FBI's probe.

An obstruction charge could be reinforced by Comey's allegations that Trump had said privately that he "hoped" the Federal Bureau of Investigation would stop investigating Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Trump also reiterated a tweet he wrote Thursday that he never actually had tapes of his conversations with Comey before he was sacked. Only one crime is required for an impeachment hearing to take place, and it appears as though Mueller, who has hired an all-star team full of investigators and prosecutors, will be digging quite deep into Trump's entire business career.

Trump advocate Newt Gingrich urged the president to "rethink" Mr Mueller's position, saying: "Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair".

White House spokesperson, Sarah Sanders, refuted speculations from the press that Trump was playing "game" in order to make sure that Comey tell the truth.

This is not the first time that Trump has suggested he has been surveilled without providing evidence.

The NBC/WSJ poll also finds 46 percent of Americans disapproving of Trump's decision to fire Comey - up from 38 percent in May.

The pattern has continued since Trump's election. When Trump asked then-FBI Director Comey whether he, Donald J. Trump, was being investigated by the FBI, Comey thrice said no.

President Trump signs 'historic' bill to transform VA
The bill enjoyed a measure of bipartisan support in both the House and the Senate before reaching the President's desk. The American Federation of Government Employees , the largest federal employee union, opposed the bill.

"While I would certainly hope that the President's most recent statement is true, we will continue to pursue the matter with other witnesses so that the public can be assured that if recordings were ever made, they will be preserved and be made available to the committee and ultimately to the public, as well", he said in a statement.

"You've got to ask the question: Why is somebody threatening tapes other than to try to intimidate somebody?"

The president has reportedly been considering firing Mueller, according to Trump friend Chris Ruddy, despite widespread opposition.

In March, Trump tweeted that he had been wiretapped by Obama prior to the election.

Trump flirted with presidential runs in 1988 and 2000 before abandoning them.

Trump's motivation for the comments is unclear - maybe he's trying to sow seeds of doubt in Mueller's findings should they go badly for the administration, or maybe he's just repeating Fox and Friends talking points again.

He's brought trouble to his White House.

His tweet came a day before he was required by Congress to hand over any such tapes.

Robert Mueller, the somber-faced and demanding FBI director who led the bureau through the September 11 attacks, and James Comey, his more approachable and outwardly affable successor, may be poles apart stylistically but both command a wealth of respect in the law enforcement and legal community.
