Trump suggests there may be ‘tapes’ of his private conversations with former FBI director

Does this count as "witness intimidation"?":

Trump appears to suggest that he may have recordings of his communications with Comey. It is unclear if such tapes exist, however.

White House spokespeople did not immediately respond to questions about whether Trump had in fact taped his conversations with Comey.

Trump put the word tapes in quotation marks, indicating that perhaps there may be a record of some kind if not an actual audio or video recording.

He used a similar construct in two of his March 4 tweets accusing President Barack Obama, without any evidence, of wiretapping his campaign offices. Trump put the words “wires tapped” in quotation marks, which White House press secretary Sean Spicer later argued meant surveillance activities more broadly as opposed to physical wiretapping.
