Last month, shortly after firing FBI Director James Comey, President Donald Trump warned Comey that “tapes” may exist of their conversation, so he needed to be careful what he said. Since then, the White House had avoided answering whether or not such tapes actually exist. Earlier this month, Trump stated that he would reveal the truth about them “in the very near future.”
With Trump’s lawyer Jay Sekulow and White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer now saying that the president should let us know this week whether there are tapes or not, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) noted that she believes Trump just made up the whole thing because he “loves to create drama.”
“You either have tapes or you don’t have tapes, and you should be able to admit that to the American people,” Speier told CNN’s Erin Burnett. “I find his lack of trustworthiness really problematic.”
When asked by Burnett if she thinks Trump fabricated the whole thing back in May, the California lawmaker stated: “I absolutely do.”
