Members of Congressional committees investigating Russian meddling in the election have shown interest in whether Trump did tape his White House conversations with Comey or anyone else.
Alternatively, if Comey's testimony was false as Trump is claiming, tapes could theoretically vindicate Trump and expose Comey to perjury charges. It took place a few hours after Comey's testimony ended, and could have been part of the full day planned by Trump aides to keep him off of Twitter while the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director testified.
Trump generated curiosity about recordings last month on Twitter.

Hodgkinson's widow, Suzanne Hodgkinson, said Thursday afternoon that she had "no idea" he was going to carry out the murders. President Donald Trump called Griner and another officer who responded to the shooting , officer David Bailey , heroes.
Although the Secret Service has handled the White House's recording systems in the past - including for presidents Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy - the agency's latest denial may not necessarily rule out the possibility of a separate recording system, according to The Journal.
And Comey himself said he hoped recordings of their conversations exist, to back up his own testimony that Trump demanded his loyalty and asked him to drop an investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
Since then, the White House has refused to clarify whether such tapes exist.
Reports say Mueller probe now examining possible obstruction
Even if President Trump had wanted to impede in the case, firing the FBI Director would in no way accomplish that. Comey told Congress last week that he believed he was sacked "because of the Russian Federation investigation".
"Lordy, I hope there are tapes", Comey now-famously exclaimed during his testimony before the Senate last week, indicating such tapes would corroborate Comey's memo stating Trump told the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, "I hope you can let this [probe into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn] go".
Several other journalist have reported similar interactions with Trump.
"Oh, you're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer, don't worry", said Trump.
Personal anecdote: Candidate Trump once said he had taped a call with me, after disputing how he was quoted. If he did make the tapes and hands them over, he better hope they prove his version of the facts, and not Comey's.

Among those in attendance was Rebekah Mercer, the daughter of hedge fund manager and billionaire Robert Mercer whose pro-Trump super-PAC reportedly ran attack ads on Comey.
