President Donald Trump does not have records of conversations with the ex-director of the FBI James Comey, Bloomberg reported. Donald Trump "has no idea," whether his conversations with the former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), James Comey, were recorded, but says that he himself did not record them and does not know if there are "tapes" or records of their conversations. He wrote about this on his Twitter page.

This President's announcement came just one day before the House Intelligence Committee deadline for the White House to show any recordings on this issue.

Absence of any recordings

He mentioned that with all those latest reports on e-surveillance, any interceptions, disclosure of information about people and illegal information leaks, he had no idea if there were recordings of his conversations with James Comey, but he did not have them.

Trump and Comey have been in public conflict since May when the President dismissed the director of the FBI. Previously on Twitter, Trump threatened Comey with the publication of the taped conversations, but he replied that he himself hoped the records would be published, if President had them.

Comey conducted an investigation into alleged Trump's links with Russia, which were denied both in the White House and in the Kremlin.

The reason tor firing

After Comey's dismissal in the press, there were leaks with the assumption that Trump tried to put pressure on Comey and the investigations that he conducted. However, the ex-director of the FBI was more cautious in wording and did not directly accuse Trump of obstructing justice, saying that it was in the competence of the special prosecutor.

With regards to the former director of the FBI, James Comey, an investigation should have been conducted in connection with the leakage of classified information, said on Sunday one of the President's legal advisers Jay Sekulow.

In early June, Comey said that after one of the meetings with the President he wrote a note about the content of their conversation and told his friend that he forwarded the document to the media.

Having declared that Comey was not able to carry out the duties assigned to him, President Trump removed him from the post of the director of the FBI on May 9, 2017, as he, as Trump said, was "unable to effectively lead" the FBI. The Democratic Party of the United States associated Comey's dismissal with the investigation of Trump's relations with Russia. Comey left his post at the time when the FBI was trying to establish possible links between Trump and Russia. The confirmation of the existence of such "ties" failed.

Writing on Twitter, Trump answered the lawmakers, who were investigating Russia's interference in the election campaign in the United States. Earlier, they asked the White House to give them any records from Trump and Comey's meetings, Reuters said.

In the middle of May, Tramp posed to Comey to make sure that there were no records of their conversations before "merging media information".
