In literature, this is known as “foreshadowing.”

Eric Holder, who served as attorney general under former President Barack Obama, posted an eyebrow-raising tweet early on Friday morning in which he told career officials at the FBI and Department of Justice to “be prepared” and “be strong.”

To the career men & women at DOJ/FBI: your actions and integrity will be unfairly questioned. Be prepared, be strong. Duty. Honor. Country.

Holder didn’t post any followup tweet after this, and would not say if he had any inside information about something that was about to happen at the DOJ or FBI.

Factors to consider: It is Friday, a typical day for government document dumping. It is the leadoff to the 4th of July holiday, a perfect time for a administration to drop a bombshell that will be lost in the hustle and bustle of Independence Day.

Holder seems to be saying “something wicked this way comes.” Will it be today?
