President Donald Trump confirmed that there are no recording of his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey, nearly 6 weeks after he implied that there were recordings, according to CNN.

Amid the Russian collusion investigation, and reports of leaks, it seems that Trump had no idea that there would be tapes/recordings of his conversations with James Comey.

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.

The White House will have to explain why President Trump made claims of intimidating James Comey whom he fired. On June 22, Newt Gingrich said President Trump was bluffing in order to rattle James Comey.

Comey admitted the recordings with Trump at Senate intelligence committee hearing

Earlier, the former director of the FBI James Comey, at an open hearing in the US Senate, which was a part of the investigation of possible ties between President and the Kremlin, admitted that he had recorded meetings with Donald Trump, but would not recall conversations with Trump about Russia's interference in the elections.

He stated that he had given these notes to his friend, Columbia University professor Daniel Richman, who later transmitted them to the media. The former FBI director expressed his confidence that Russia was responsible for the cyberattacks on American government structures, and he was fired because he was trying to investigate the "Russian probe".

However, about the possible links of Donald Trump with the Russian authorities, James Comey refused to speak - for the reason that the hearings were open.

Records, including audio, if they exist, must be transmitted before June 23.

On May 9, Trump resigned the director of the FBI, James Comey, who had held this post since 2013. President argued his decision by the fact that Comey lost confidence in Washington. James Comey stated in his testimony that Donald Trump tried to "soften" the course of the investigation of the alleged Russian interference in the presidential election in 2016.
