"Tick, Tick, Tick" Comey Ally Hints That Next NYT Bombshell Is In The Works

Tyler Durden's picture

It’s been a couple of weeks since the New York Times, Washington Post or CNN have published an anonymously sourced bombshell with more salacious details about the ongoing feud between former FBI Director James Comey and President Donald Trump. But the next salvo could arrive soon – possibly as soon as Monday, if a longtime Comey confidant is to be believed.

Benjamin Wittes, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, posted an ominous message on Twitter on Friday: “TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK.”  Wittes’s tweets may verge on ridiculous, but they should be taken seriously: As the Daily Caller pointed out, his tweets of “tick tick tick” have in the recent past preceded major NYT bombshells, including the May 16 report about the Comey memo and its contents. He tweeted a similar message two days later, before the NYT published a report about Comey wanting to keep his distance from Trump.

Wittes did it again shortly before the Times published a story alleging Comey asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions not to leave him in the room alone with Trump on June 6. Wittes says he has reviewed Comey-related stories before, and was an on-the-record source for the May 18 piece reported by the NYT’s Michael Schmidt, where he recounted to the NYT reporter that Comey had told him at a lunch meeting that he sought to distance himself from Trump. Comey felt that Trump was attempting to cozy up to Comey in hopes of quashing the ongoing Russia probe.








In his latest tweet, he claimed the “fuse length” on the next story is uncertain, and that it could drop as soon as Monday, or some time after.



While Wittes has said that he and Comey have discussed how the White House handled the Russia investigation, he claims they did not discuss the particulars of the investigation, which is looking into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to influence the election.

Comey began instructing his friends to leak damaging stories about Trump to the Times shortly after he was fired by the president on May 9. During testimony earlier this month, Comey admitted he was angered by Trump’s remarks criticizing his management of the FBI, suggesting that his motives for leaking the stories weren’t exactly altruistic.

Wittes was not the source of the Comey memo, as the Daily Caller recollects. Columbia law school professor Daniel Richman, another friend of Comey’s, shared the document with The Times after being provided a copy by the former FBI chief.

The timing of Wittes message is notable: It follows President Donald Trump’s admission that he was bluffing when he said he might have recorded his conversation with Comey, and Comey's appearance at The New York Times' offices...

Comey, disguised behind dark sunglasses stared straight ahead as entered the Times Square office building, accompanied by his wife Patrice Failor.

So, what will this next bombshell allege? Has Comey somehow found the smoking gun that will finally prove unequivocally that Trump colluded with the Russians? Maybe he’s been keeping it in his back pocket, refusing to share it with the world because he doesn't want to unleash another wave of anti-Russia hysteria.

Stay tuned to find out.

if he has somethign really big and real, then why the hell did he not bring it up in testimoney?

This whole process smells in more ways than five.

Again, its totally inept and corrupted.

eg, if they had the goods on Trump, why not present it months ago  and save the country from this circus show.

Here is reality.

They all are corrupt. They all have skeletons in their closets. They all have the ability to blackmail each other. Therefore, noone will go to jail, noone will lose their job and the sespool only gets more polluted. It's all a chirade. The result of all this is, they get richer and we get poorer. Nothing changes

Whoa Dammit's picture

Is there anyone Comey knows and any reporter for the MSM that Comey didn't leak to?

Boggles my mind that THIS bitch was running the FBI.....

Biggest cuck ever- makes Barry look butch.

Jeezas, dude- it's over, your rep is gone.  Go away and spend your Clinton money in peace.....

Forget that Comey thinks he is on some sort of high horse.  He is clearly a bungling boob that should NEVER be in charge as something as dangerous and corruptable as the FBI.  What a disgraceful piece of shit.  Of course, he is no more than a finger puppet for Soros, Hitlery and oDumbo.

On the bright side, only 3 more years of this circus of nothingness presidency

The fuse is long because the "story did not meet CNN's editorial standards"

Good luck finding lower standards, this may take a while....

I will take "nothingness" over treason any day. There is no Russian connection at all.  AND if there was, Obama just let it happen.

There is a good leaker saying something is brewing this week. FBI anon on 6 chan. Who knows this could be a desperate retaliation. Yes, I couldn't remember if it was 4 chan or 8, so I split the difference.

Maybe these events are "The Deadly Wound" mentioned in Revelations?  I think these known unknown lucifarians may get sacrificed to make way for "The False Christ".   WHICH COMES FIRST!

Try this for deeper research  good stuff

Comey has lost all credibility.

The second Trump told the world he didn't tape Comey was probably the exact time that Comey sat down and drafted a couple more memos to himself about what Trump said to him. Then the next day he shows up at the NYT's, who is no stranger to printing any allegation that makes Trump look bad, with additional information. Unless this asshole has video tapes of Trump that prove whatever allegations are being readied, I think he is wasting his time. At this point I wouldn't believe Comey if he said water was wet.

Barry has a blackmail folder on 535 people.... that's how he lasted 8 years.....did he pass it on?

Akzed's picture

No doubt Comey leaked the Podesta emails to the NYT detailing the pedophile network that runs the govts of the world. Finally!/

 "Comey ... sought to distance himself from Trump"

It appears he's now pretty well "distanced". Mission accomplished!

Hal n back's picture

I once had a boss who wrote memos after a meeting-as he was writing them with me in office , he wrote things to support what he wante. He told me its ok, the other guy in several  months would  not remember what he said so might as well use it to our advantage.


It was part of my education of the real world and why not to trust many.

"The second Trump told the world he didn't tape Comey was probably the exact time that Comey sat down and drafted a couple more memos to himself about what Trump said to him."

Trunp did however leave it open as a possibility that the IC or WH had taped the conversation...saying only that he PERSONNALLY didnt tape it!  Trap set...lets see if Comey takes the bait.

Jesus Christ these people are fucking pathetic.

Just arrest the bastards for what they have done already and stick their asses in solitary. Forever.

More jails will need to be built to hold them all. Jails aren't needed; traitors should be executed.

Now that the NYT is in the news again, let's take a look at a quote from a famous person regarding newspapers.

Four hostile newspapers are more to be feared than a thousand bayonets.

-- Napoleon Bonaparte

So I think President TRUMP and the TRUMP team's next steps are clear.


THE END ....

The NYT is owned by a Mexican billionaire who is a globalist.

Let us drop any pretense that the NYT is anything but extremely biased and more than willing to print completely false 'news'.
