Comey Pal Keeps Dropping Hints On Twitter That There’s More To Come

President Donald Trump’s decision to wish FBI director James Comey well in his future endeavors has sparked a firestorm in the nation’s capital. There has been an endless stream of stories and speculation making the rounds ever since, and the prevailing narrative is that Trump canned Comey because he had the goods on him. The White House has dismissed the speculation as baseless, but that hasn’t stopped the overall story from consuming the news cycle.

As the Independent Journal Review shares, a self-proclaimed ‘personal friend’ of Comey has been doing his part to fan the flames of conspiracy theorists. Benjamin Wittes has been posting some ominous messages on social media, and some observers are taking that as a sign that there may be more to come.

“tick tick tick tick tick tick,” read one post.

“#NotesFromUnderTrump, Day 116: Boom!” read another.

The latter post linked to a story from the New York Times that claims Trump asked Comey to put an end to the investigation into Michael Flynn, who was an early casualty of the Trump administration because he failed to disclose a number of things before coming on board. While there has been no confirmation from Comey that the report is accurate, that hasn’t stopped it from being reported as fact.

That’s leading to some serious confusion for the general public. Virtually every story that has broken in the wake of the Comey firing has been blasted out with a ‘breaking news’ tag, but there hasn’t been a whole lot of substance to many of them once the initial shock and awe wears off. For the Times piece that claims Trump asked Comey to take it easy on Flynn, the story revolved around an unnamed source that allegedly saw some notes Comey took. Yes, seriously.

That doesn’t mean that there’s not more to come on this story, but perhaps the media can tone down the hyperbole on each little nugget of information that hits the wires. For Witte's part, he was at it again on Thursday, and it seems like he’s enjoying the attention that his posts are getting.

“By the twitching of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes. tick tick tick tick tick tick tick,” he wrote.

No word on what Wittes is alluding to this time around, but those that put stock into him being ‘in the know’ are waiting for more shoes to drop.
