Trump: I bluffed Comey on ?tapes? to keep him honest
President Trump?s warning last month that his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey might have been taped was an attempt to affect Comey?s public statements and his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, the president admitted in an interview Friday morning. After refusing to comment for nearly six weeks, Trump finally acknowledged Thursday that he has no such tapes. ?When he found out that I, you know, that there might be tapes out there, whether it?s governmental tapes or anything else, and who knows, I think his story may have changed,? Trump said of Comey in a ?Fox & Friends? interview.

White House concedes Russia meddled in campaign, but denies it changed the result
The White House Thursday addressed the joint intelligence report that found Russia had attempted to interfere with the 2016 presidential election, more than five months after the report?s conclusions were made public. First, on Twitter, President Trump dismissed the concerns about Russia as a ?big Dem HOAX? and suggested that his predecessor, President Barack Obama, did little to confront the problem. White House aides then clarified Trump?s remarks and said he believes there was Russian meddling but is certain it did not affect the outcome of the race.
