  • Relax, Comey: US Secret Service Says No 'Tapes' Exist

According to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed with the Secret Service by the Wall Street Journal, the Secret Service says it has no record of transcripts or recordings - "tapes" - having to do with President Donald Trump or the current administration.

"Lordy, I hope there are tapes", Comey now-famously exclaimed during his testimony before the Senate last week, indicating such tapes would corroborate Comey's memo stating Trump told the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, "I hope you can let this [probe into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn] go".

The Secret Service, which protects the president and his family, maintained a secret taping system for the White House in the eras of John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon.

It remains possible that someone other than the Secret Service could have made a recording.

"Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!"
