President Trump fired off a tweet in the wee hours of Friday morning suggesting fired FBI Director James Comey better watch his mouth before ‘leaking to the press.’
James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!

The MSM immediately got to work construing Trump’s Nixonian tweet as a threat, which White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer dispelled during an afternoon briefing, adding “The President has nothing further to say on that.”
Some have suggested that Trump’s firing of Comey compares to Watergate, in which President Richard Nixon removed the special prosecutor investigating the scandal, and it was revealed that Nixon taped private conversations in the White House.
In response to Trump’s Tweet, congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) shot off a harshly worded letter to Trump’s attorney seeking answers about the suspected recording.

Wikileaks has offered to help with a tongue-in-cheek offer:

If tapes of Comey and Trump do exist, Trump needs to leak them pronto. Not only would they quash what remains of the Russia investigation, Ratings would be YUGE!If you enjoy the content at iBankCoin, please follow us on Twitter
