President Trump’s attorney said on CBS’ “Face The Nation” on Sunday that Trump plans to address Comey tapes this week, per The Daily Caller.

asked Sekulow Sunday.“The president said last week he would release the tapes of, if there were tapes of, his conversation this week. That hasn’t happened.

“I think the president is going to address that in the week ahead,” Sekulow responded.“There was a lot of issues this past week,” Sekulow said, citing the president’s major address regarding Cuba and the shooting incident that injured House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and four others.
“So the issue of the tapes, I think right now was not priority issue number one when the country was facing an assassination attempt on Steve Scalise and other members of Congress and their staffs by the way,” Sekulow explained.

“I wanna be very clear here, and very direct,” Sekulow told NBC’s Chuck Todd. “The president has not been, and is not, under investigation.”
