Benjamin Wittes, the man who runs Lawfare blog, and who has been close with James Comey, is signaling that something extremely significant is about to go down in the Trump-Russia collusion case.

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:
