For the six months that he's been in office, Donald Trump has continued to deny all the allegations against him as it pertains to the growing Russian scandal and all the parts that surround it. In his latest round of tweets, the president is backtracking from remarks he previously made about his conversations with James Comey.

Trump on Comey

Following Donald Trump's election win last November, speculation increased regarding his potential link to Russia. During the 2016 presidential election, the former host of "The Apprentice" refused to release his tax returns, causing his critics to wonder what he might be hiding in his financial information.

As the months moved forward, several of Trump's advisers and associates were caught having ties to the Kremlin, with some, including former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, being forced of their position in the campaign and later administration. In recent months, the investigation into the Russian scandal has heated up, but appeared to hit a wall when Trump abruptly fired James Comey as head of the FBI, as he was leading the investigation prior to his termination. After firing Comey, Trump sent out a threatening tweet, writing, "James Comey better hope that there are no 'tapes' of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!" After Comey testified in Congress about his conversations with the president, Trump appeared to backtrack with a pair of tweets on June 22.

Taking to Twitter on Thursday afternoon was Donald Trump, who is now walking back his comments about possibly recording James Comey. "With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea whether there are 'tapes' or recordings of my conversations with James Comey," Trump tweeted out.

Doubling down in a follow-up tweet, Donald Trump flat out admitted he never recorded his conversations with James Comey. "I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings," he concluded.

Moving forward

Whether or not there are any secret recordings of the conversations that took place between Donald Trump and James Comey, it appears that the president and his administration are feeling the pressure of the Russian investigation.

Recent reports have confirmed that even Trump's own lawyers are hiring their own legal team to defend themselves from the allegations and aftermath that could follow if the investigation doesn't go according to their plan.
