I am not particularly concerned about President Trump taping former FBI Director Comey as we have a long history of Trump being a liar and Comey being a public servant with integrity.
What I am “mildly” shocked by is that nobody is saying the obvious: we need the tapes because they will be the “smoking gun” linking Trump to General Flynn and to the Russians.  Then we’ll find out if Priebus, Bannon and Pence knew about it (collusion with the Russians to affect the election) AND anybody else in the Trump family.
And I still want the President to release his tax returns…
