On Friday, Trump tweeted what many viewed as a threat to Comey, claiming he would release "tapes" if the ousted director started flapping his gums to the media.
On Friday, CNN's Jake Tapper reported that Comey was "taken aback" by Trump's request for a personal assurance or pledge of loyalty at a dinner shortly after he took office. Mr Comey declined to do so, saying he would always be honest with the president but wasn't "reliable" in a political sense.
Donald Trump now refuses to discuss tape recordings of conversations with FBI Director James Comey that POTUS suggested in a Friday morning tweet. Maybe, Trump said, he will just cancel briefings with the media altogether.

Before his firing on Tuesday, Comey had been scheduled to appear in Thursday's hearings - one in public and another more revealing classified session.

The president said he never pressured Comey into dropping the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe, and added that there was no "collusion between me and my campaign and the Russians".
