Trump threatens to cancel briefings for 'sake of accuracy'

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump yesterday met Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe to discuss the situation and morale at the agency after the firing of the James Comey a day earlier.

If any such tapes exist, the problem is that, because of suspected collusion between WikiLeaks and the Kremlin, the tapes may never be heard - at least not on this side of the Atlantic.

Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia says the firing of former FBI Director James Comey will in no way deter the committee from finding out the truth of what happened during the 2016 presidential election.

The White House first said this week that Trump sacked Comey because of a negative memo about him from the Justice Department, only to have the president later say he made the decision before seeing the memo, resulting in considerable media discussion.

"He's getting beat up", Trump said.

The White House also issued a timeline claiming how Trump lost confidence in Comey over the course of the last several months.

"Look, it may just be that the president is trolling the press corps and saying "Work yourself into a frenzy about all this" and turns out it's nothing", continued Wallace. His position was backed up by the committee's ranking member Rep. Adam Schiff of California, who said that Trump should "immediately provide any such recordings to Congress or admit, once again, to have made a deliberately misleading - and in this case threatening - statement".

Earlier, Spirro asked if Trump was "moving so quickly that your communications department can not keep up with you".

"You don't mean that?" she asked.

If there are tapes, they could prove problematic for Trump. Unless I have them every two weeks and do it myself.

"Will he be there tomorrow?" she pressed.

"I think it's pretty simple, I hadn't had a chance to have the conversation directly with the president", she said.

"As a very active president with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with ideal accuracy!.", Trump said in a series of tweets as he defended his spokespersons, who in the past few days have been seen quite often contradicting multiple times.
