President Donald Trump issued a thinly veiled threat on Twitter Friday to fired FBI Director James Comey.

Two days after firing FBI Director James Comey, President Trump issued a thinly veiled threat on Twitter, suggesting there could be recordings of the conversation the two men had during a dinner that took place about a week after the inauguration.

According to the New York Times, Trump asked Comey to pledge his loyalty to him during the dinner, something the former FBI director refused to do.
