Jay Sekulow on Existence of ‘Tapes’: ‘The President Is Going to Address That in the Week Ahead’

While much of the focus on Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow’s tour of the Sunday shows today was on his insistence that President Donald Trump isn’t under investigation despite Trump claiming that he is, he also touched on another subject that had drawn a lot of attention over the past few weeks. Shortly after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, the president sent out a tweet threatening Comey that he better hope “tapes” of their conversations. Since then, the White House has tried to avoid the issue while the president has said he’ll address it soon. Meanwhile, the Congressional committees handling the Russia probe have asked the administration to show any evidence and Comey himself as said he hopes there are tapes. During an appearance on CBS’s Face the Nation, host John Dickerson asked Sekulow about the tapes and if we’ll see them anytime soon. “The president said last he would release the tapes of – if there were tapes – of his conversation this week. That hasn’t happened,” Dickerson stated. “Where is that?” “I think the president is going to address that in the week ahead,” Sekulow explained. “There was a lot of issues this past week.” He further added that “the issue of tapes” wasn’t high-priority over the past few days due to other more pressing matters, like the Congressional baseball shooting and Trump’s Cuba announcement. “This issue will be addressed in due course and I suspect next week,” Sekulow concluded.
