President Trump warned former FBI Director James Comey that he might have made audio recordings of their conversations. After Comey testified in front of the House Intelligence Committee, the President revealed that he didn’t have any recordings of their conversations.
In a recent interview with Fox News, Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz praised President Trump for implying that he may have recorded his conversations with Comey. It ensured that the former FBI Director didn’t wander too far from the truth when he answered questions about whether the President pressured him to drop the Michael Flynn investigation or not.
“I’ve been reading about it for the last couple of months, about the seriousness of the horribleness of the situation with surveillance all over the place,” Trump said. “So you never know what’s out there. But I didn’t tape, and I don’t have any tape and I didn’t tape.”
Dershowitz noted that Comey was “calculating, designing to try and get a special counsel because he didn’t have the courage to stand in front of the TV cameras and say, ‘I want a special counsel appointed.’
