Trump is apparently very angry that former FBI Director James Comey is defending himself in the press, angry enough to threaten the private citizen.
James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!

I'm old enough to remember when the nation collectively flipped out over the NSA's collection of anonymous metadata from international phone calls.
In this case, Trump is explicitly threatening a private citizen and potential witness with secret surveillance.
Trump is going to make Nixon look good before this is over. Nixon-era Republicans already look better because no sitting Republicans in 2017 are willing to hold Trump accountable. Throwing 20 to 30 million people off healthcare and cutting taxes for the rich is more important to today's GOP.
NEW: Source to @pamelabrown : Comey is "not worried about any tapes”.
