Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, on Sunday said that if President Donald Trump made "tapes" of his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey, Congress should issue a subpoena for those recordings.
The BBC's Laura Bicker in Washington says Mr Trump was referring to a private White House dinner in January during which the president claims Mr Comey assured him he was not being investigated over alleged links to Russian Federation.
A combination photo shows former U.S. FBI Director James Comey testifies over investigation into Hillary Clinton's email system, on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. on July 7, 2016, and U.S. President Donald Trump nominates Judge Neil Gorsuch as the new justice for the Supreme Court in Washington D.C., the United States, on January 31, 2017. During the campaign, Mr. Trump's aides told reporters that they feared their offices were bugged and that they were careful about what they said.

The academy produced attacking midfielder has been offered a new contract at Goodison Park but is yet to sign it. Everton will demand a fee of £50 million if they are to sell Ross Barkley this summer, according to reports.
Lawmakers from both parties reprimanded Trump's actions, which included shifting explanations from the White House for Comey's dismissal and an ominous tweet by Trump that warned Comey against leaks to the press because he may have "tapes" of their conversations. Trump, then the Republican Presidential Nominee, reacted favourably to the news.

Trump abruptly fired Comey on Tuesday and later said Comey was a "showboat" and "grandstander" who was not doing a good job, drawing a firestorm of criticism.

"I guess I was a little bit surprised, because all of the Democrats, I mean, they hated Jim Comey", Trump said. Comey oversaw the FBI's investigation of alleged Russian meddling in the election. First, some periodicals complained that only Russia's photographer was allowed to take pictures at the protocol part of the meeting.
Ms Fisher served as assistant attorney general for the Justice Department's Criminal Division. But Comey's colleagues told The New York Times instead that Trump pressed Comey at the dinner for a "loyalty" pledge to the president and that Comey refused.
The first candidate to arrive for interviews was Alice Fisher, a high-ranking Justice Department official in the George W. Bush administration.
Trump is mulling expanding the communications team and has eyed hiring producers from Fox News, according to one White House official. Attorney General Jeff Sessions promised in March not to be involved in "any matters related in any way to the campaigns for president of the United States", a commitment already called into question by his involvement in Comey's termination, as The Post outlined Thursday.
