As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

White House Doesn’t Deny Trump is Taping Oval Office Conversations

The White House Friday refused to confirm or deny that President Trump is recording his Oval Office conversations.

Questions were raised in the wake of an apparently rash tweet — does he do other kinds? — suggesting that he might have taped his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey.

“The president has nothing further to add on that,” Spicer said repeatedly when asked whether Trump is recording his chats.

Uh oh. The Democrats have been looking for an actual Watergate comparison. Now they’ve got one.

Not that this suggests Trump did anything wrong. It’s just that if he is taping stuff, WHICH ONE WOULD THINK PRESIDENTS HAD LEARNED NOT TO DO, the Democrats will be demanding access to the tapes every chance they get, and Trump’s legal team will have to avoid not being ordered to hand them over.

And God knows what’s on those tapes. Imagine if someone released tapes of you talking to your coworkers. Or talking to your spouse, for that matter. You’d probably either be carted away to jail, a mental institution, or at least, a prison for the politically incorrect.

Democrats wasted no time demanding that the tapes be put on iTunes.

“Under normal circumstances, we would not consider credible any claims that the White House may have taped conversations of meetings with the President,” Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., and Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., wrote in a letter to White House Counsel Don McGahn. “However, because of the many false statements made by White House officials this week, we are compelled to ask whether any such recordings do in fact exist. If so, we request copies of all recordings in possession of the White House regarding this matter.”

Trump keeps putting out fires with lighter fluid. Democrats would rather he respond to accusations of scandal than govern. They’re getting their wish.

    • Agreed!
      Just like Russian “collusion” no tapes exist.
      It would be an amateur mistake and Trump is no amateur.
      Swamp dwellers are going to be in a state of paranoia…”oh, oh, did somebody hear what I said”?
      They might be a little more cautious in their plotting.

      • The fact that Trump posted the word “tapes” in quotation marks would indicate he is being sarcastic, to me anyway.

  1. If, IF, the whole WhiteHouse was bugged, every room, every phone, every computer hacked, and every movement videoed, the Dems would have no legal standing to demand to see or read such information gathered.
    THERE IS NO CRIME TO INVESTIGATE!

    IMO, MrTrump’s tweets are like throwing chum to swarming catfish. Geez.
