Donald Trump has revealed all about those cryptic James Comey 'tapes' tweets

Trump said Robert Mueller, the special counsel, has a "very bothersome" close relationship with James Comey, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director that Trump fired. "He changed his testimony, told the truth, we won the case".

Fox News reporter Ainsley Earhardt asked Trump if his tweet about possibly recording Comey without his knowledge "was a smart way to make sure [Comey] stayed honest" during his congressional testimony.

Trump first tweeted in May following Comey's removal that the veteran lawman had "better hope that there are no "tapes" of their conversations.

Advisers who speak to Trump regularly have said he had not mentioned the existence of tapes during their conversations.

"If part of the investigation is how the president treated Comey by firing him the way he did, Mueller has a potential conflict of interest", said Dershowitz.

Comey confirmed those conversations one day before his Senate hearing when he released his opening statement.

Making matters just a little worse, the president also seems to believe he was fiendishly clever to publish a tweet that helped lead to the appointment of a special counsel, who's reportedly made Trump the subject of an ongoing criminal investigation.

"It's an unbelievable thing", Trump said in another Fox interview that is scheduled to air on Sunday, excerpts from which were released Friday afternoon.

I can say that the people that have been hired are all Hillary Clinton supporters.

"Comey was determined to get revenge on the president by getting a special counsel appointed", he told Cooper.

Mr Trump had earlier questioned Robert Mueller's integrity in an interview with Fox News.

"I've been reading about it for the last couple of months about the seriousness of the horribleness of the situation with surveillance all over the place", the president said in the interview. But, you know, I have confidence in him.

Comey also testified that Trump asked him for "loyalty" - which Trump emphatically denies.

President Donald Trump on Friday used an interview to defend his actions in relation to the Russian Federation investigation as he signed a veterans bill into law.

"Not a great strategy, President Trump", Tapper quipped, before ripping the White House for banning cameras and live audio during press briefings in recent days, including on Thursday.

Mueller will hold talks this week with senior Senate Judiciary Committee members, with the committee's Republican chairman, Charles Grassley, and its top Democrat, Dianne Feinstein. "The whole thing is ridiculous, if you want to know the truth, from that standpoint".

Neither Trump nor the White House gave out recordings since then and were reluctant to confirm if such recordings did exist.
