Sometime after 9:00pm eastern time, Donald Trump’s Department of Justice put out a brief three sentence press release whose sole purpose was to ask the American public to ignore any leaks to the media that might be coming from foreign intelligence communities. But what stands out is the intel community chatter that picked up roughly three hours before the press release went out.
For instance political insider Claude Taylor – whose inside sources have correctly predicted Trump Russia grand juries and other events – posted the following: “A lot of us are hearing similar chatter-that a certain US ally has a ‘compromising’ tape of Trump and is debating if/when/how to release it.” (link). Taylor posted this at 6:46pm eastern time, hours before Trump’s DOJ sent the press release.
So it’s not as if this sudden online buzz around the mythical “Pee Pee Tape” is mere speculation as a result of the DOJ press release. Instead, intel community chatter about the compromising tape surfaced online first, and only then did Trump’s camp put out the statement begging the public to ignore any foreign leaks to the U.S. media. So it sounds a lot like the Trump administration heard the same foreign intel community buzz that political insiders heard, and believes that something is indeed about to be leaked.
So now we wait to see what the European or other foreign intel communities have up their sleeve that’s got the Donald Trump administration panicking, and precisely when they’ll end up releasing it. Tonight’s late-night and seemingly rushed press release suggests that the Trump team fears it come as soon as tomorrow morning. But it’s important to keep in mind that these kinds of things almost never seem to adhere to a predicted schedule. However, we can count on it being something that Trump fears will be devastating to himself. If you’re a regular reader, feel free to support Palmer Report
