Following what many have described as a threat from President Trump earlier this morning directed at former FBI Director James Comey, WikiLeaks has just blasted out the following tweet offering a $100,000 reward for the "Trump-Comey tapes." Moreover, folks who want to up the reward are encouraged to send bit coins.
"WikiLeaks offers US$100k for the Trump-Comey tapes. To increase the reward send Bitcoin to reward address: 1FfzC3KrbrJ3CRbz4hqHnxSqvYfy9M5CT"

Of course, the message is a direct response to Trump's tweet from earlier which implied that there may in fact be recordings of his conversations with Comey.
James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 12, 2017
For a White House that has been plagued with leaks from day 1, we have to imagine this added incentive is somewhat concerning for a Presidency under siege from all angles.
