Goodness! Dem Leaders Suffer Meltdown Over Trump ‘Comey Tapes’ Tweet
Just when you thought you could not love the Commander in Chief anymore than you already do–
This week President Trump fired controversial FBI Director James Comey.
On Friday President Trump warned the former FBI Director that he may have tapes of their conversations.
James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!

This comes after the Obama government taped, unmasked and leaked private conversations of Trump officials to the press.
The minority party and their media suffered a major meltdown as a result of this tweet.
Top House Democrats demanded the President turn over the tapes.
Today, after President Donald Trump tweeted “better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!” Rep. John Conyers, Jr., the Ranking Member of the House Committee on the Judiciary and Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, the Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, sent a letter to White House Counsel Donald F. McGahn II to request copies of all recordings in possession of the White House regarding this matter.
In their letter, the Members also requested, “…all documents, memoranda, analyses, emails, and other communications relating to the President’s decision to dismiss Director Comey—a decision which the President declared yesterday he planned to make “regardless of [the Deputy Attorney General’s] recommendation”—and all discussions with Director Comey.”
And Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) also demanded President Trump turn over the Comey tapes.
