President Donald Trump issued a thinly veiled threat Friday to fired FBI Director James Comey.

"James Comey better hope that there are no 'tapes' of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press," the President tweeted.
The tweet marks an extraordinary development in the ongoing feud between Trump and the agencies investigating alleged ties between his campaign and Russia.

Trump threatens Comey in new tweet

I wonder what rump is talking about? What conversations??

What is he talking about or is this another Trump attention grab to divert away from Russia?

What are your thoughts?

I don't see the threat.
As it is, the tweet is cryptic.
Tell me if he means that Comey better not have been recording... or that Comey should be careful what he says... if Trump was recording?

WOW! Veiled threats and accusations, sounds like "witness tampering" again. Just another line item morsel to add to his "Articles of Impeachment".

Why would he need to threaten someone if there were nothing to hide?

Seriously??? You don't think the phrase '...better hope there's no tapes of our conversations...' isn't a veiled threat? Seriously?? You don't hear the 'or else' implied? Why, then, would Comey give a rat's ass if there were tapes UNLESS he (Comey) was at-risk for some reason. Willfully blind, dude.

Well, I was thinking either way it suggests there is a little more than just smoke kicking around here.

Is a little threatening tho

Comey is either threatening or has threatened to leak info. Trump probably has tapes of him making those threats.

Nope, I dare to say that it's a minority who thinks like that.

Only this minority has 90% of the press and online the biggest mouth.

So Trump is reminding Comey not to embellish his stories because there "may" be recordings of the conversations.
But the left will not take the common sense route, they will spin this into something it's not as usual. how sad.

what could Trump possibly do with tapes of Comey other than prove what was really said? Seriously, I'd like to hear the twisted thoughts on this so I may try to understand that process.

Yes.
Seriously.
One can read into it to dream up a veiled threat, if they were so inclined, but it is just as likely that he was warning him that it would be a stupid thing for Comey to do (whether leaking or taping) and would just cause himself problems down the road.

Not blind.... just reading a cryptic tweet without blinders over my eyes.

The media will absolutely spin this into oblivion ( I realize that is not what you said). Trump knows it too. He's casting, and knows it's going to be a great day fishing!

Don't they record everything that goes on in the Oval Office? I seem to remember seeing something about that, and the Pres has a little button on his desk he can hit to turn the recording off? Maybe I'm imagining that, idk...
