First, it was the Wall Street Journal dropping its bombshell of a story on how Republican operative Peter W. Smith colluded with Russia for Donald Trump’s benefit. Then, it was the New York Times dropping a bombshell of its own when it released the story of Donald Trump Jr. conspiring with the Kremlin to rig the election in his father’s favor.
Now, according to credible sources, the Washington Post is about to drop perhaps the mother of all bombshells, proving Trump Russia Collusion. According to political insider Claude Taylor: “WaPo story is (according to sources) irrefutable evidence of Trump’s personal involvement in the conspiracy”
This isn’t the first time reports have surfaced that the media is sitting on a bombshell.
Respected political pundit Tea Pain reported via Twitter: “Tea Pain can confirm from multiple sources that our press has damning intercepts that will expose Trump. The press outlets are working with Mueller’s investigation, holding these articles so as not to compromise their active sources. Rest assured there is evidence of Trump wrongdoin’ and that it will cripple Trump’s presidency. This goes deep, friends. It’s no longer a matter of if, but when. Tea Pain is confident Mueller’s team will ferret out all the weasels and justice will reign! This also explains why Trump’s jumpier than a bobcat at a county fair. He knows it’s there, thus his elevated anti-media attacks.”
(Side Note: Tea Pain isn’t just some random guy spouting theories. This is the same guy that traced down the connection from Russia’s Alfa-Bank to Trump Tower during the campaign. You can read that bombshell report here.)
The Palmer Report suggests we may know what’s going on:
News outlets are very rarely willing to sit on stories at the request of the government, but there are a handful of exceptions. One is when it’s a matter of national security, in this case the story interfering with Mueller’s ability to bring the guilty parties to justice, with the fate of the nation hanging in the balance. Would a major newspaper consider its Trump-Russia collusion story to rise to the level of national security? Even if not, the other exception can be when a news outlet agrees to hold a story in exchange for an exclusive on a more complete version of the story once things have played out more.
So we’ll see what happens this week. Robert Mueller could be waiting on a grand jury to come in, or a witness to flip, or any number of other events that could cause him to ask the media to hold back for a bit. But this is yet more evidence that Donald Trump’s increasingly crazed behavior isn’t mere happenstance – he knows what’s coming.
