WikiLeaks offering big bucks for “tapes” of Trump visits with Comey

Following President Trump’s intimation Friday that conversations between him and former FBI Director James Comey were recorded, WikiLeaks has offered $100,000 for the “tapes.”

“James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!” Trump tweeted Friday morning.

“If there are—you know where to send them,” WikiLeaks replied, supplying a link to its online submission form.

Then another tweet from WikiLeaks, with an offer for a substantial reward:  “WikiLeaks offers US$100k for the Trump-Comey tapes. To increase the reward send Bitcoin to reward address: 1FfzC3KrbrJ3CRbz4hqHnxSqvYfy9M5CT.”

Trump’s tweet fueled the raging interest in his sudden termination of Comey who had served approximately one-third of his 10-year term leading the FBI.

The White House said on Tuesday that Comey was fired for mishandling the federal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

In a Thursday interview with NBC News, however, Trump asserted that his decision was influenced by the ongoing FBI investigation of his 2016 campaign and allegations of Russian collusion.

“And, in fact, when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said, ‘You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story, it’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should’ve won,’” Trump said.

The New York Times has since claimed that Trump requested a pledge of loyalty from Comey during a private dinner in January, but was instead promised his “honesty.”

Trump has acknowledged speaking to Comey on three occasions since his January inauguration, including the one-on-one dinner, and alluded to the possibility of recordings of the interactions in Friday morning’s tweets.

“The tweet speaks for itself,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer later told reporters. “There’s nothing further to add on that.”

The U.S. intelligence community previously concluded that the Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential campaign by employing state-sponsored hackers to access Democratic targets and steal sensitive emails later released by WikiLeaks and others prior to the election.

While campaigning, Trump lauded WikiLeaks for those disclosures, but has since indicated support for prosecuting WikiLeaks publisher, Julian Assange, for earlier leaks of classified U.S. government and military documents.
