Colbert goes to Russia, vows to search for Comey 'tapes'


The Late Show host, who is in Russia on assignment for his show, appeared on Evening Urgant, a popular Russian late-night program hosted by Ivan Urgant, on Friday.

Once Colbert confirmed that the show was only airing in Russian Federation (and maybe at the White House), he declared, "OK".

Stephen Colbert is still in Russian Federation "on assignment" for The Late Show, but he's already making headlines from overseas. In response to Donald Trump's tweet in which he admitted to having not taped former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey's conversations, the Late Show host announced he was in Russia and took a dig at the president, and any prospective tapes the Russians might have of him as alluded to by the infamous Trump dossier, in one fell swoop.

"Don't worry, Mr. President".

This storyline debuted in May, when Trump tweeted, the day after firing Comey: "James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!"

Colbert's tweet said that "if the "tapes" exist", he'd bring Trump back a copy.

Colbert also posted a photo of himself wearing a trench coat and in front of a grand building that appeared to be the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg. (Colbert was referring to reports of Russian dossier of damaging personal information, which was said to have included compromising videotapes of the president).
