Fuck me but Trump openly threatening Comey on Twitter is just such an extraordinarily frightening escalation after his last extraordinarily frightening escalation…
Donald Trump threatened former FBI director James Comey on Twitter on Friday morning.
Trump tweeted: “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”
The tweet, which if taken at face value would suggest Trump has been secretly taping White House meetings, came after the New York Times reported that he demanded “loyalty” from Comey in a private dinner held shortly after Trump took office.
At the White House press briefing on Friday afternoon, press secretary Sean Spicer repeatedly refused to deny that Trump was taping visitors to the White House.
