House Intelligence Committee sets deadline for Trump to produce taped Comey conversations

Leaders of the House Intelligence Committee's Russia investigation set a deadline for President Donald Trump to produce any taped communications between Trump and former FBI Director James Comey, saying if the tapes exist, Trump must submit them to the committee by June 23.

The deadline comes as Trump and top aides have continually declined to comment on whether tapes of those conversations — which Trump suggested he had — are real.

At a joint press conference with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis, Trump told reporters he would announce whether tapes exist "over a very short period of time."

"You're going to be very disappointed," Trump said.

Kind of a big deal... No?
1/3 Flynn stuff is BS in context 2 guys talking about a guy they both know well. I hear "I hope nothing happens but you have to do your job"
2/3 very far from any kind of coercion or influence and certainly not obstruction!
3/3 Knowing my father for 39 years when he "orders or tells" you to do something there is no ambiguity, you will know exactly what he means
Hoping and telling are two very different things, you would think that a guy like Comey would know that. #givemeabreak
Comey "I could be wrong"
So if he was a "Stronger guy" he might have actually followed procedure & the law? You were the director of the FBI, who are you kidding?😂
Did I miss something or did Comey just say he asked a friend to leak information to the press? Is this a joke?
