US Secret Service says it does not have Trump tapes

The U.S Secret Service stated that they did not engage any recording systems in recording the conversations of President Trump in White House.

The agency made the disclosure on Monday in response to a freedom of information request by The Wall Street Journal.

The agency is tasked with protecting the president and did not rule out other government agencies could have carried out recordings.

Is there a White House recording system?

Donald Trump's suggestion that there were "tapes" of conversations between himself and then-FBI Director James Comey appears to be yet another fabrication of the beleaguered president.

Since posting the provocative tweet last month, Trump and his White House aides have been coy as to whether such recordings exist.

He wounded a top Republican lawmaker, a Congressional aide, a lobbyist, and a Capitol police officer before being shot himself. Walsh said he hired his friend to do some work for him a couple of years ago, but hadn't seen him around town recently.

Comey suggested in his high-profile Senate testimony last week that any recordings would back up his account over the president's, adding, "Lordy, I hope there are tapes". 'Oh, you're going to be disappointed when you hear the answer, don't worry'.

It's not a White House press briefing until press secretary Sean Spicer starts stammering like Porky Pig in uneven pancake makeup. He told reporters last week that he would discuss the possibility "in the very near future".

Asked whether she would find out, Sanders joked that she would "look under the couches".

GOP leaders have been incrementally sending bits and pieces to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office for review. I am frustrated with the Senate Republicans in the drafting of American Health Care Act legislation.

The records, had they existed, may not have been publicly released immediately anyways, as they fall under the Presidential Records Act, which are not necessarily subject to FOIA, especially while the president is still in office.
