President Donald Trump said on Thursday he did not record his talks with James Comey and does not have such footage. These statements came after Trump said that he might have snapshots that could hurt the former FBI director. "Whether there are "tapes" or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make and do not have any such recordings.," Trump wrote on Twitter. Representatives investigating allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 US election have asked the White House for recordings with Comey, which Trump had rescinded in May.

Trump accused Comey of lying

Soon after Comey's resignation, Trump announced on Twitter that Comey had "better hope that there are no recordings of their conversations before he starts talking with the media." The question of Russian engagement shadowed the first five months of Trump's mandate and drew attention from the Republicans' attempts at Congress to reform the healthcare and tax system. Trump recently accused Comey of being a coward because he gave the reporters compromising notes about their private meetings, revealing that the US president had asked him to give up on the investigation into the Russian affair. He also accused him of lying after Comey's hearing in front of the Senate.

Comey testified before the Senate that the President had asked him to step down from the investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and his alleged connections with Russia.

US President Donald Trump's attorney said Trump is not under investigation regarding alleged interference with Russia in the US presidential election in 2016, adding that the President has not received any official notice of being investigated.

Attorney Jay Sekulow has denied Trump's announcement on Twitter on Friday that he was being investigated for having dismissed the FBI's director last month.

“I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt." Trump Tweeted.

Integrity of a Deputy State Attorney

But Sekulow said that Trump reacted to the story from The Washington Post by which a special adviser to the Justice Ministry Robert Mueller investigates whether Trump attempted to disrupt the investigation by dismissing FBI director James Comey in May.

"The fact is that the president was not and is not under investigation," Sekulow told CBS. "We did not receive the Special Adviser's Office notice that the President was under any investigation," Sekulow added.

Trump in his revelation did not specify who he thinks of, but he appears to have questioned the integrity of the deputy state attorney Robert Rosenstein, another man of the justice ministry. On May 17, Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller, former FBI director, as a special advisor to investigate this affair. Rosenstein sent a memorandum to Trump in May in which he was strongly criticized by FBI Director James Comey.

While Trump's administration first stated that this letter was the reason for his resignation on May 9, Trump later said that he did so because of Russia.

Last week in the Senate hearing Comey said he believes he was dismissed for the FBI's investigation into Russia. He also said that Trump had asked to give up on a related investigation into a former National Security Advisor to Michael Flynn. Mueller investigates whether someone linked to Trump or his campaign was in an illegal relationship with Russian officials or others associated with the Kremlin.
