President Donald Trump on Friday said he would soon reveal whether recordings of his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey existed.

"Well, I'll tell you about that maybe sometime in the very near future," he said, in response to a reporter's question about the existence of such tapes, which Trump hinted at in a tweet last month.

"I'm not hinting anything," he said during a White House press conference with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis when another reporter asked for clarification. "I'll tell you about it over a very short period of time."

Trump lawyer insists Comey misled Senate about leak timeline

  Trump lawyer insists Comey misled Senate about leak timeline President Trump's lawyer accused former FBI Director James Comey Friday of misleading the Senate Intelligence Committee about when and why he leaked personal memos to the press. In a combative statement, Marc Kasowitz lashed out at the media, accusing the press of misreporting his claim that Comey gave false testimony.On May 12, just days after Trump fired Comey, the president suggested over Twitter that he may have secretly recorded their private conversations.James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!- Donald J.

Trump came out looking the worst after Comey ’s testimony. Comey called Trump ’s bluff and invited him to release any tapes he might have of their interactions. Very unlikely. But he might. And the answer might be “yes.”

Senators asked many questions that Comey said he couldn't answer in a public setting because of the ongoing investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election and whether Trump associates colluded in that On Thursday, Comey made clear that he hopes there actually are such tapes .

"Oh, you're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer, don't worry," he cryptically predicted.

He maintained that some of Comey's testimony under oath before the Senate intelligence committee on Thursday was false but that it also "vindicated" his insistence there had been "no collusion" between his campaign and Russia and that his his conversations with Comey, in which Comey claimed Trump pressured him to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, did not amount to obstruction of justice.

"Frankly, James Comey confirmed a lot of what I said. And some of the things that he said just aren't true," he said.

He flat denied one of Comey's claims that he had sought a pledge of loyalty.

"I hardly know the man. I'm not going to tell him to pledge allegiance," Trump said Friday. "I mean, think about it, who would ask a man to pledge allegiance under oath?"

And Trump said he would be willing to testify to his side of the story to those investigating Russia's meddling in the election and possible collusion between Russia and Trump's campaign.

"One hundred percent," he said.
