President Trump set the press corp ablaze today when he tweeted to former FBI Director James Comey about not leaking information to the press, or else he’d have to consider releasing the tapes he may or may not have his possession, of a conversation he may or may not have recorded when the two met in private. (SEE TWEET HERE).
Sent to put the fire out, White House press secretary Sean Spicer was pounded with hard hitting questions from a press corp that wanted distinct answers about the meaningfulness of the tweet during today’s press briefing.
Spicer was asked if the president recorded the conversation between himself and Comey as his tweet implied. Spicer said the president has nothing more to say about the issue, or the tweet. Pressed again, and again, and again, Spicer repeated that the president has no further comment, and that the tweet speaks for itself. Asked if the president is now recording conversations, Spicer had no comment.
