During his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee Thursday morning, former FBI Director James Comey told Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) that he hopes there are tapes of his conversation with President Trump.

“I was so… stunned by the conversation, that I just took it in,” Comey said.  “The only thing I could think to say, because I was playing in my mind… I remember every word he said… I was playing in my mind, ‘what should my response be,’ and that’s why I very carefully chose the words,” Comey said.

He added, “Look, I’ve seen the tweet about tapes… Lordy, I hope there are tapes.”

Below is President Trump’s tweet on May 12, that instigated this reference to tapes, when he said, “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”

Preet Bharara, a former U.S. attorney from the Obama administration, who President Trump fired after he refused to resign, tweeted out a response to this one, saying, “We can all agree with Jim Comey, that Lordy, we hope there are tapes.”

Comey also admitted that he helped orchestrate the leak of his own memos through a third party. On Thursday, he acknowledged that he shared copies of his memos documenting his Trump meetings with a “close friend” — an unnamed professor at Columbia Law School — so this person could share the information with a reporter. These memos eventually were leaked to the media.
