Senate Judiciary Committee leaders have asked the White House for all records of its interactions with former FBI Director James Comey, including "all audio recordings, transcripts, notes, summaries, or memoranda."
The letter from Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and ranking member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., was sent just days after Trump said in a tweet that Comey should hope there are no "tapes" of his talks with Trump.
It wasn't clear what Trump meant at the time, but since then, Republicans and Democrats are after any information they can get that might show an attempt by Trump to influence Comey's investigation into former national security adviser Mike Flynn.
"Last week, the President tweeted a message implying that the White House may have audio recordings of interactions with Mr. Comey," they wrote. It specifically asked for tapes and any other records that may have memorialized the meetings.
Grassley's committee also wrote to the FBI to ask for all records that might have been kept of Comey's meeting with Trump. The New York Times reported Tuesday that Comey kept a memo saying Trump said he hoped the FBI could drop that investigation.
"We are writing to request that the FBI provide the Committee with all such memos, if they exist, that Mr. Comey created memorializing interactions he had with Presidents Trump and Obama, Attorneys General Sessions and Lynch, and Deputy Attorneys General [Rod] Rosenstein, [Dana] Boente, and [Sally] Yates regarding the investigations of Trump associates' alleged connections with Russia or the Clinton email investigation," they wrote. "Please provide these documents by no later than May 24, 2017.
