As we noted late last week, Benjamin Wittes, the Brookings Institution senior fellow and noted ally of former FBI Director James Comey, took to twitter to claim that another ‘bombshell’ story, presumably related to the multiple investigations into whether the Trump camp colluded with the Russians, was in the works. However, unlike previous warnings from Wittes, this one contained a caveat: the ‘fuse’ on the story is of an uncertain length, and that the next salvo could arrive as soon as Monday.
But with no major bombshell forthcoming, Wittes returned to Twitter Monday to offer a few clarifications.
1) Not all ticks are related to Comey.
2) Fuse length remains uncertain.
3) Interesting preemptive defense of collusion happening.
