Beyond threatening the former Director of the FBI to be silent or insinuate that he can be blackmailed, there’s also the obvious point that whatever is on those tapes would be equally bad if not worse for Trump. And since Comey really has nothing to lose—he was unceremoniously fired, humiliated by Trump and his TV lackeys, and made to look incompetent—it’s bizarre that Trump would think this kind of intimidation would actually work.

Also, countdown to Sean Spicer telling us that Trump didn’t actually mean tapes when he said tapes because he put it in quotes, and that he was referring to audio/visual apparatuses more broadly.
