Before several previous bombshells, Wittes has tweeted "tick, tick" (as if a bomb timer is ticking down), and he did it again this morning. At the end of last week, Wittes was writing about the potential for a major bombshell. At that time, the right-wing media picked it up, and began threatening James Comey, suggesting that he was improperly leaking something. Here is the tweet from last week:
