Earlier in the day, McMaster ran into a group of reporters gathered in the White House seeking comment on the story.

At Friday afternoon's White House press briefing, press secretary Sean Spicer did not rule out the possibility of their cancellation.

"You can't be cute about tapes".

If the tapes exist, and no one outside of Trump knows for sure if they do, not turning them over would be another bad move that would only make Trump look guilty.

Days of turmoil is triggered in Washington after the firing of Comey.

The latest controversy came as Trump's administration reels from the fallout over his abrupt dismissal of former FBI Director James Comey and amid congressional calls for an independent investigation into allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 US election. Mark Warner, D-Va., co-chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, which is investigating possible links between the Trump 2016 campaign and Russian Federation, and Sen.

McMaster says the president did not discuss details that were not already known publicly.

If there are recordings, Republican Sen.

The White House declared the allegations, first reported by the Washington Post, incorrect.

"If it's accurate, it's disturbing because it's divulging information about operations in Syria which could be exploited not only by the Russians to interrupt intelligence operations that they feel are threatening to them", Reed said.

During an interview on Sunday on "State of the Union", CNN anchor Jake Tapper asked Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer if he supported the idea, floated by Senate Intelligence Committee vice chairman Mark Warner. Yet he keeps topping himself, and a new Daily Beast report says that aghast White House staffers struggled to cope with the chaos of the latest Trump mess.

Russian Federation has denied the claims and the White House says there was no collusion. Declining to comment on a Garland nomination, Schumer left open the possibility that Democrats might withdraw support for a new Federal Bureau of Investigation director unless the Justice Department names a special prosecutor for the Russian Federation probe.

But Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told NBC's "Meet the Press" program there is no question that "the Russians were playing around in our electoral processes".

Mr Trump met Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the Oval Office last week.

During an appearance on MSNBC, former National Security Council spokesman Ned Price told host Greta Van Sustern that Trump's disclosure of classified intel to Russian Federation is "the nightmare scenario" for relations with American allies whose intel could be critical to the country's national security. Eight people are being considered for the job, including the current, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. James Clapper, the former director of national intelligence, said the Founding Fathers created three co-equal branches of government with checks and balances, but with Trump as president, that was now "eroding".

Acknowledging Democrats' limited influence in Congress, Schumer told anchor Jake Tapper, "The key here, of course, is getting some of our Republican colleagues to join us".

Republicans control both chambers of the U.S. Congress.

The reports suggested that Flynn may have given Kislyak the impression that the incoming Administration might be willing to consider lifting sanctions that were imposed on Moscow following Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea from neighboring Ukraine.
