For his part, Trump has repeatedly fueled speculation of White House recordings, first alluding to their possible existence in a tweet shortly following his decision to fire Comey.

Trump has been coy about whether any recordings exist of his private conversations with Comey, who was sacked by the president in May.

The Secret Service previously handled recording systems within the White House for past presidents, including presidents Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy.

Comey last week during public testimony said he hopes tapes do exist.

Meanwhile, Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders coyly responded to reporter's lines of questioning into the tapes last week, saying she didn't know if any tapes existed, but would try to "look under the couches" to check for any.

They addressed another letter to Comey, asking for copies of the memos he wrote documenting his conversations with Trump.

In response, the agency, which is responsible for recording systems inside the White House said that it didn't have any - claiming, "There are no records pertaining to your request".
