Rep. Adam Schiff, D-CA, who is the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, on Sunday said if President Trump made “tapes” of his conversations with fired FBI Director James Comey, Congress should subpoena those recordings.
During an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Schiff questioned Trump’s recollection of his conversation with Comey.
“Can you prove obstruction based on the President’s own words when we don’t know whether we can believe this President?” Schiff said. “If there are tapes, of course, that would be the best evidence of what took place.”
Trump on Friday brought up the possibility of “tapes” in a tweet: “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer would not clarify if the President records conversations in the White House, and said he was “not aware” of Trump recording an exchange with Comey.
