Donald Trump admits he lied about taping Comey conversation in attempt to "keep him honest."

Courtesy of Salon: 

“When he found out 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,” Trump said. “You’ll have to take a look at that because then he has to tell what actually took place at the events. And my story didn’t change — my story was always a straight story, my story always was the truth. But you’ll have to determine for yourself whether or not his story changed, but I did not tape.” 

The president acknowledged on Thursday that he was not in possession of any recordings of his former FBI director. But Trump’s reasoning for saying that he did remained a mystery — until Friday, of course, when Fox News aired his interview, in which he conceded that he wanted to keep Comey honest. 

Trump’s confession was especially bizarre considering part of it directly contradicted his own past statements. Trump suggested in his interview with Earhardt that his strategy worked because Comey did not change his story. Earlier this month, Trump accused Comey of lying under oath to Congress.

How does Trump think he kept Comey honest when he wrote down their exchanges immediately after they happened and then simply shared that information with the Senate Intelligence Committee?

The only thing that Trump did with these lies about tapes, is to ensure that there would be a Special Counsel appointed.

So is that what he calls "winning?"

Because it sure feels like winning from my perspective.

    Now Trump claims his prodding caused Comey to tell the truth. So by his own admission Trump obstructed justice. Slam dunk impeachment!

      The bright orange asshole thinks everyone is a liar like him. Most of us are HONEST. Comey is someone who DEFINITELY would tell the truth, under oath or not.

      Anon @ 2:07 P.M. - Exactly! The dumb-ass orange shit-gibbon gave himself away!! In other words, trump confirmed that everything Mr. Comey stated under oath was true! The imbecilic moron is too stupid to see that he hung himself publicly for calling Mr. Comey's bluff!!!

    Let me get this straight: Comey lied, AND trump kept him honest???

      Trump wants it both ways. He's spinning like a top trying to make it appear that he's always right and always winning.

      I heard recently, I think it was in a video from Fareed Zakaria, that Trump is a BS artist, not just an occasional liar who actually knows a lie from the truth. So true!

    Trump truly is a first class liar! What a sack of shit! Comey is coming out looking like the honest one, that is for sure!

    My thirteen year old does that when she is lying. One lie leads to another one. A web of her own making. Each time the so called president opens his pie hole, another big fat fib comes out. Its boring, predictable and the shit will hit the fan for him, Putin, and the GOP after the liefest.

    Melania either is an immigrant dumbass and believes that liar's story or she is a smart immigrant and knows her husband is a effing liar.

    Look at her and her sunken eyes with all that black stuff around it. She looks aloof, detached, weird, cold blooded, emotionless and stiff.

      She knows exactly what he is. All she's out for is money and her cushy lifestyle.

    2. At this point she is probably praying he'll drop dead in office as he won't divorce her while he is president. Her only hope is to outlive him. Not that she'll get much in the way of money. He doesn't have enough to cover his debts. So his death will be a disaster. His house of cards empire will fall apart when he dies.

    Maybe Trump assumes that nobody ever tells the truth unless they think someone else has the goods on them.

    On the other hand, he doesn't seem to understand that he constantly creates a permanent record of his own lies.

      Any and every other direction Trump is a liar.

      Lol, that about sums it up very accurately.

    3. He absolutely is. A pathological liar. He not only can't help himself he doesn't even recognize that he *is* lying.

      I have no doubt there are tapes. But Trump doesn't have them.

      I suspect that the FBI tapes calls coming IN and that when Trump called and talked to Comey on the phone, those conversations were taped. I'll bet Mueller will have them.

    "In other words, the question is, if he had the information, why didn't he do something about it? He should have done something about it.

    WHATTTTT? That fat fuck would have cried like a baby if President Obama said anything about Trump and the Russians.

    Trump slams Obama for doing 'nothing' about Russia before the election

    President Trump in an interview released Friday criticizes former President Barack Obama over Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election, accusing Obama of doing “nothing” before the election.

    “Well I just heard today for the first time that Obama knew about Russia a long time before the election, and he did nothing about it. But nobody wants to talk about that,” Trump said in an interview airing in full Sunday on “Fox and Friends Weekend.”

    “The CIA gave him information on Russia a long time before they even -- before the election. And I hardly see it. It's an amazing thing," Trump continued....

    "In other words, the question is, if he had the information, why didn't he do something about it? He should have done something about it.  But you don't read that. It's quite sad," Trump said....

      Oh REALLY, Donald, and what would you have accused him of then?? Trying to throw the election to Hillary??

      Damned if you do and damned if you don't. Everything IS his fault for your shortcomings, isn't it?

    2. Anonymous4:00 PM

      Obviously Trump has no clue about how government investigations are done. President Obama did exactly the right thing. He had the intelligence agencies gather up as much information as they could. I suspect, at this point, that the US intelligence agencies know a lot of incriminating things about Trump, his campaign and the complicit GOP. Trump, like all bullies, attacks the other side when cornered. I hope he's not sleeping very well, knowing that his collusion is well known to those investigating him, his administration, his campaign and his GOP.

    There's a big difference between Michelle Obama and Melania Trump

    Michelle Obama is confident in her skin while Donald appears to be in control over Melania like she's afraid to speak or move like back in the campaign days.

    Donnie, the dishonest John, Drumpf couldn't tell the truth if his next breath depended on it. His most serious lie (perhaps) was the one he told about his heavy combat battling sexually transmitted diseases during the Viet Nam era. That's a battle he lost bigly as shown by his current level of tertiary syphilis/mental debilitation.

    ROFL "Donald Trump admits he lied about taping Comey conversation in attempt to "keep him honest." That's some fine pretzel logic that would stun even Dubya.

    And what does Trump know about "honesty" anyway? He couldn't be honest if he tried.

  16. Anonymous4:04 PM

    He wasn’t worried about keeping him honest, little donnie thought he could intimidate Comey into keeping his mouth shut.

  17. No surprise here. He's lied about having tapes before. Author of an unflattering book on Trump said Trump threatened him about tapes and when Trump sued, under oath Trump admitted to having no tapes and saying it to intimidate people.

    I understand Trump's statement that he lied about possibly having tapes of his conversations with Comey in order to "keep him honest" to mean that every word that Comey wrote in notes about their conversations, in his written statement to the investigating committee, and in his verbal testimony was true. In other words, by admitting that he had been played games with Comey, Trump told the world that Comey's description of their meetings was completely truthful. So Trump agreed, smirkingly, that he had tried to get Comey to stop investigating Flynn and that he had been obstructing justice and that he had asked for Comey's personal loyalty to him. Trump may think that proves how clever he is; I think it proves how dumb he is.

      Exactly, that's it in a nutshell, Beaglemom. It was stunning how fast the R echo chamber spun Trump's "reasoning" for his "tapes" tweet.

      The WH had about 2 weeks to say if or if not there were tapes - then on the due date, June 22, after getting all of the soldiers on the same page, Trump tweets there were no tapes. BAM! the echo chamber explodes.

      Hannity, on his afternoon show, says it was a brilliant way to make sure Comey stayed honest. Because Comey is a "known liar." Hours later, Spicer, Fox pundits, and Conway spin the same cover-up BS.

      Any rational person could see the "tapes" tweet was an attempt at intimidation. But the average Trumpster is not rational.
