Two days after Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, Trump tweeted a direct threat aimed at stopping Comey from speaking openly to the press about Trump's collusion investigation with Russia: "James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!". When press secretary Sean Spicer was asked about this tweet that afternoon, Spicer said it was "not a threat" and added "The President has nothing further to say on that".
