Trump says he has not obstructed FBI's probe Russian Federation probe

24 June 2017

In an interview that aired on Friday on Fox & Friends, Mr Trump said: "When he found out that I, you know, 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". Fox released a partial transcript of the interview on Thursday.

Warner says Trump's tweet has no effect on the committee's investigation of Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

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

US President Donald Trump admitted Thursday he does not have recordings of his private meetings with fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, after fueling speculation for weeks of secret Oval Office tapes.

Neither Trump nor the White House gave out recordings since then, and were reluctant to confirm if such recordings did exist. "There has been leaking by Comey". Mr Trump tweeted on May 12.

Mathew Knowles confirms Beyoncé and Jay Z gave birth to twins
His daughter married her hip hop star hubby in 2008, and the couple also shares five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy together. Beyonce famously announced her pregnancy back in February in an Instagram post to end all pregnancy announcements.

Allegations of ties to Russian Federation have cast a shadow over Mr Trump's first five months in office, distracting from attempts by his fellow Republicans in Congress to overhaul the U.S. healthcare and tax systems.

Republican Representative Mike Conaway, who is leading the House Intelligence Committee's investigation, told reporters this morning that Mr Trump's tweet was not a sufficient response. "If the president had no tapes, why did he suggest otherwise?" Did he seek to mislead the public? It failed, spectacularly: Instead of silencing Comey, it set in motion the special counsel investigation that now haunts Donald Trump's waking imagination. "And if so, did he take other steps to discourage potential witnesses from speaking out?"

Adam Schiff, the committee's top Democrat, said in a statement yesterday that Mr Trump's Twitter comment stopped short of denying that the White House had tapes or recordings, and said the White House must respond in writing.

The president's admission on Thursday came just 20 minutes after Bloomberg reported that Trump had no such tapes, citing "a person familiar with the matter".

Reuters was unable to verify the CNN report.

South Korea Tests Missile As President Speaks Of Need To 'Dominate' North
In the latest of its constant ballistic missile provocations, in early June, North Korea fired several anti-ship cruise missiles. The military said the missile, a Hyunmoo-2 with a range of up to 800 kilometers (nearly 500 miles), hit its target accurately.

Mr Mueller was appointed by the US Department of Justice shortly after Mr Comey's termination.

Mr Trump voiced concern in a TV interview on Fox News earlier today about what he said was the close relationship between former FBI Director James Comey and Mr Mueller, who was named to take over the Russian Federation investigation after Mr Trump fired Mr Comey.

The Kremlin has denied United States intelligence agencies'conclusion that Moscow tried to tilt the election in Mr Trump's favour, using such means as hacking into the emails of senior Democrats.

Trump for weeks fed speculation about the tapes, repeatedly fending off questions about them with quips that he will answer the question "sometime in the near future", as he said on June 9.
