WikiLeaks said Friday it is prepared to pay $100,000 for so-called “Trump-Comey tapes,” poking fun at President Donald Trump’s tweet many have described as a threat to former FBI Director James Comey, the Gateway Pundit reports.
WikiLeaks was responding to Trump’s tweet on Friday saying, “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press.”
The president fired Comey Tuesday over his poor handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server while serving as secretary of state.
Comey is also leading an investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the outcome of last November’s presidential elections.
The White House has been criticized in the past few days for misleading the media about the chain of events that led to Comey’s firing.
But Trump defended his staff with a tweet on Friday saying, “As a very active president with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with perfect accuracy!”
