Thus are the battle lines being drawn for the inevitable campaign against Mr. Trump's defiance of the law, triggered when Mr. Comey tactically handed the chore to Mr. Mueller.
"There has been a lot of talk about her stepping down", he said.
Never one for deep reflection, Donald Trump missed the signs of Comey's true character and deemed him a "showboat". Yet the president did not rule out the possibility that recordings exist - with Comey or anyone else.
"I certainly think that the president would hope that the former director would tell the truth".
Comey was overseeing the investigation until Trump fired him last month out of frustration with the inquiry.
President Donald Trump says Republicans benefit as long as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi remains in power.

Trump also appeared to agree with Fox host Ainsley Earhardt's suggestion that his initial tweet was meant to keep Comey honest before he shared his accounts of conversations with lawmakers.
When Trump himself was asked about it at a news conference earlier this month, he promised to answer the question at a time of his choosing, and said that reporters would not like the answer.
"I can say that the people that have been hired are all Hillary Clinton supporters, some of them worked for Hillary Clinton", Trump said.
