FBI Director Jim Comey thought he could get away with one.

When Donald Trump claimed Comey had better hope there were no tapes, it upended the Deep State scheme to use Comey to claim Trump obstructed justice.

But what happened next was Comey’s worst nightmare.

Comey rocked Washington when an associate of his leaked memos that described the former FBI Director’s interactions with Trump.

Comey’s leak was illegal – those memos were government property and possibly classified if they were written on his FBI laptop – and Trump fought back by tweeting that Comey had better hope there were no tapes of his conversation.

The media jumped into a frenzy demanding to know if Trump had a secret recording system.

After a month of ravenous demands that Trump explain himself, he sent out two tweets stating that he did not make recordings of his conversations with Comey.

But there was a method to what Trump was doing.

In his letter firing Comey, Trump noted that Comey had told him on three separate occasions he was not under investigation.

Immediately stories appeared in the press that stated as fact that Comey never said such things and would contradict Trump in his sworn testimony.

Comey also confirmed other details of Trump’s version of the story.

Some pundits wondered if Comey would have told the truth had Trump not tweeted about the tapes.

And there is precedent to believe that without Trump’s tweets, Comey would have tried to weasel his way through his testimony without telling the full truth.

When Comey announced there was an investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Comey would not say Trump was not a target.

He told Trump and various Senators this was the case, but by not saying it publically, Comey created a scenario where the public believed Trump was under investigation.

Trump’s bluff forced Comey to tell the truth and vindicate Trump’s version of events.
