In the latest installment of “The Resistance,” host Keith Olbermann floated the idea that even if President Donald Trump does not have tapes from his conversations with fired FBI Director James Comey, that the FBI itself may have recordings of the calls.
When discussing statements made by Trump’s new spokesman and attorney Jay Sekulow that claimed the president would make revelations about the so-called Comey tapes “in the week ahead,” Olbermann accused the president and his lawyers of intentionally pushing back the release of the tapes.
“Thus is the Trump gang continuing to kick the can down the road on the issue of just confirming or denying that there are tapes,” Olbermann said.
Now that the Secret Service has denied that they have any tapes of Comey and Trump’s conversations, Olbermann continued, there are two possibilities left — either the White House recorded the president’s calls, or the FBI recorded their former director’s.
“There is one other possibility that to my surprise I haven’t seen raised anywhere else” Olbermann continued. “Doesn’t the FBI record all the phone calls that come in to its’ headquarters? Nevermind Trump-Comey tapes — are there, could there be, legally can there be FBI Comey tapes?”
