Press Briefing by Press Secretary Sean Spicer, 5/12/2017, #47
Q Moving on to the news of the week, really, and the day, did President Trump record his conversations with former FBI Director Comey?
MR. SPICER: I assume you’re referring to the tweet.
Q His tweet.
MR. SPICER: And I’ve talked to the President. The President has nothing further to add on that.
Q Why did he say that? Why did he tweet that? What should we interpret from that?
MR. SPICER: As I mentioned, the President has nothing further to add on that.
Q Are there recording devices in the Oval Office or in the residence?
MR. SPICER: As I’ve said for the third time, there is nothing further to add on that.
Q Does he think it’s appropriate to threaten someone like Mr. Comey not to speak?
MR. SPICER: I don’t think -- that’s not a threat. He simply stated a fact. The tweet speaks for itself. I’m moving on.
