Comey testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee on June 8 that the president asked Comey to let go of the investigation into former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

WASHINGTON-President Donald Trump claimed in a Fox and Friends interview that aired Friday morning that while he did not personally tape his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey, he believed he may have been surveilled by unknown outside sources. After Trump suddenly fired Comey and was stunned by the backlash, word began to "leak" out about Comey's version of their conversations.

If the tweets were relevant, then Trump's comments on Fox News about the tweets and the tapes lie are also relevant.

President Donald Trump has questioned the impartiality of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the probe into Russia's meddling in the United States election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. "My story was always the truth".

The president did not, however, say what may have changed, only saying that investigative reporting may uncover more.

Asked during the Senate hearing whether he anxious about the existence of tapes, Comey replied, "Lordy, I hope there are tapes". "Those entrusted with the sacred duty of serving our veterans will be held accountable for the care they provide", Mr. Trump said.

Referring to Mr. Comey, the president said that "when he found out that I, you know, that there may be tapes out there whether it's governmental tapes or anything else and who knows, I think his story may have changed". "I mean you'll have to take a look at that because then he has to tell what actually happened at the events". But you'll have to determine for yourself whether or not his story changed.

Fox & Friends anchor Ainsley Earhardt asked, "So it was a smart way to make sure he stayed honest in those hearings?"
