Adding, "In response to your request, the Secret Service has conducted a reasonable search for responsive records".

The US Secret Service has said it doesn't have any recordings or transcripts of any tapes recorded within President Donald Trump's White House, a disclosure that failed to rule out whether any tapes exist of Trump's conversations with ousted FBI Director James Comey.

After receiving the request from the Wall Street Journal, the Secret Service started searching for responsive records.

Much has gone down ever since then, including Comey's explosive testimony, in which he made several accusations against the President and said he hope there were tapes recording their conversations.

After Trump again intimated last week that he could have recorded his controversial discussions with fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, it remained unclear if that claim was true.

"Lordy, I hope there are tapes", Comey said.

On May 12, three days after he fired Comey, Trump suggested in a tweet that he had recorded their private discussions with Comey.

On Friday, June 9th President Trump is so clear in saying that there are conversations between him and James Comey.

Now, the admission by the U.S. Secret Service has cast new doubts on the existence of audio recordings of Trump's conversations before firing Comey.

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

At Monday's White House Press briefing, Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters that Mr. Trump would address the issue of any tapes "when he's ready".
