The left went ballistic on Thursday when President Trump revealed that he didn’t have tapes of his conversations with James Comey. Trump explained why he hinted at the possibility of the existence of tapes during an interview on FOX News:
President Trump’s strategy was brilliant! The bottom line is that he just wanted to keep the former FBI Director honest. Trump wanted to protect himself by making Comey believe their private conversation was recorded in case he said something different when he testified before Congress earlier this month: “When he found out that there may be tapes out there, whether it’s governmental tapes or anything else, and who knows, I think his story may have changed. I mean, you’ll have to take a look at that.”
“My story didn’t change, my story was always a straight story. My story was always the truth, but you’ll have to determine for yourself whether or not his story changed.”
The left went bonkers when the news came out that there weren’t tapes. They claimed that President Trump lied and said there were tapes. Nice try by the left but the tweet below is proof that Trump suggested but NEVER confirmed he had recorded the conversations:
See what he did there?
