The top-ranked Democrat on the powerful Senate Intelligence Committee called on the White House Friday to "preserve" any audio tapes of meetings between President Donald Trump and former FBI director James Comey.
Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia joined a chorus of other Democrats by saying if such tapes exist, lawmakers need to know about them.
Warner was responding to Trump's Friday morning tweet that seemed to raise the possibility of there being recordings of discussions the president had with Comey. Trump fired Comey on Tuesday for "not doing a good job."
Democrats have accused Trump of trying to squash the FBI investigation into whether his campaign had improper ties to Russia.
Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Richard Burr, on the other hand, dismissed claims that there was collusion between Trump's team and America's Cold War foe.
"To date, there has been no evidence of collusion," Burr, a North Carolina Republican, said Friday.
