Robert Mueller clarifies Trump-Russia investigation boundaries with Congress

It is true that both Comey and Mueller worked together as Department of Justice colleagues during the George W. Bush administration, and did have a work-related friendship.

The White House is letting President Donald Trump's tweet Thursday - asserting that he had not taped former FBI Director James Comey - stand as the President's official statement.

On May 17, Trump set off a flurry of speculation by sending a tweet that seemingly indicated he might have taped conversations of his conversations with the FBI director, who he later fired, citing the Russian Federation investigation.

When Comey's account was publicized, Trump tweeted that Comey "better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press".

Speculations were provoked when Trump sacked Comey, leading to controversies.

Trump wrote on Twitter on Thursday, a day before the deadline, that he did not know if there were recordings of his conversations with Comey, but he did not make or have any such recordings.

Of course, Trump could delete the tweets at any time - he's already deleted a handful of tweets during his presidency. The question is whether or not the White House will provide it - and if they don't, how these tweets will hold up to legal scrutiny in the ongoing investigation. Mueller and several congressional committees are investigating Russian meddling in last year's election aimed at helping Trump win, and whether he obstructed justice.

Trump announced that there are records that would potentially sweep Comey's claims away.

Comey also said Trump privately asked him to "let go" of the FBI's investigation of Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn. Trump's original tweet, warning Comey of potential tapes, appeared to be a blatant attempt to intimidate Comey prior to his testifying before Congress.

"There's been no collusion, no obstruction and virtually everybody agrees to that", Trump told Fox, adding that Mueller "is an honorable man and hopefully he'll come up with an honorable solution".

Trump has spent his entire career in business, entertainment and now politics, telling lies that range from being being frivolous fibs and bluffs, to being malicious and pathological.

Trump attempted to threaten James Comey with his tape tweet.
