The U.S. Secret Service says it has no recordings of any conversations in President Trump's White House.

The agency issued that statement in response to The Wall Street Journal's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request Monday, amid pointed questions following Trump's suggestion that there may be recordings of his interactions with former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

The Wall Street Journal asked the Secret Service to submit all the record in White House on or after November 8th, 2017.

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

Knowing this, another reporter asked what's stopping the president from releasing tapes that supposedly exonerate President Trump from obstructing justice.

The president said that the press would be "disappointed" by his announcement, raising doubts about the existence of tapes.

In public testimony before Congress last week, Comey expressed his hope that the tapes did exist.

The reporters questioned her about the conversations, and she told she did not whether the tapes existed or not.

Trump said at a news conference Friday that he would reveal if he taped the conversations "over a very short period of time". The Secret Service said a review of its main indices found no records related to the request.

After asking for a timeline on their release, Spicer said they would come out "when the president's ready to release it".

The Secret Service said that they would have no further comments on the matter.

"I think the president made it very clear on Friday that he would get back as soon as possible on this", he told reporters.
