Gingrich: Trump Wanted to ‘Rattle’ Comey – No ‘Tapes’ Exist

President Donald Trump does not have recordings of his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey, according to a series of tweets he sent out Thursday.

Bloomberg reported earlier Thursday morning:

President Donald Trump doesn’t have recordings of his conversations with then-FBI Director James Comey, according to a person familiar with the matter, capping weeks of speculation about whether such tapes exist.

President Trump previously sent out a tweet, “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”

The Hill reported:

Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said he thinks President Trump was trying to “rattle” former FBI Director James Comey by suggesting there might be recordings of their conversations.

“I think he was, in his way, instinctively trying to rattle Comey,” Gingrich told The Associated Press.

“He’s not a professional politician. He doesn’t come back and think about Nixon and Watergate. His instinct is: ‘I’ll outbluff you.’ “

President Trump sent out two tweets addressing the mysterious ‘tapes’ of his conversations with Comey:

 

President Trump has been taunting the media about these ‘Comey tapes’ as well. He coyly responds to reporters’ inquiries about the supposed recorded conversations he had with then-FBI Director Comey. This bluffing technique worked beautifully because Comey sang like a canary at his recent public testimony.
